Paul DePodesta has one of the most interesting careers in sports. He and Epstein are building league commissioner type resumes.

The Cleveland Browns named Paul DePodesta the team’s Chief Strategy Officer, Owner Jimmy Haslam announced Tuesday. DePodesta will be responsible for assessing and implementing best practices and strategies that will provide the organization with the comprehensive resources needed to make optimal decisions.


An amazing concoction of buzzwords.

DePo certainly knows process, but he doesn't strike me as the guy who can win over people to implement those processes very well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
