Sal Paolantonio of ESPN reports that new team president Don Smolenski will have much less involvement in the football operations than his predecessor, Joe Banner.

Quote:
“The new team president will no longer be involved in the day to day operations of cap management, player negotiations and acquisitions,” an unnamed senior team official told Paolantonio. “That will all now be the responsibility of Coach Reid and the general manager’s office.”

The Eagles have officially announced the transition, calling it a “front office succession plan.”


Looks like Reid will be around for much longer than we thought.

Is it possible, at some point (in the future), Reid moves up to management altogether and someone is brought in to be HC or promoted?

Here is the transcript:

http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/news/article-1/Lurie-Banner-Smolenski-and-Reid/0de08be9-432c-4aa3-b9a7-ffc5385a8e37

Quote:
Jeffrey Lurie opening remarks: "We’re here today to announce an executive succession plan that provides terrific long-term stability and continuity for the team and a great opportunity for Joe as well. This guy sitting on my left here (Joe Banner) is a long-term friend and truly one of the best executives in sports. I think it’s probably obvious to most people over the last 18 years that he is outstanding in every capacity and he’s unbelievably committed to the franchise. His loyalty and devotion to creating a successful franchise and winning are all of the things you could want in a long-term president.

This was my first thought when I heard this news and read the quotes.

Instead of ending Reid's tenure as Head Coach with a firing, it could be as a promotion to the front office.

Food for thought.

There were rumors of this like a month ago. You people are looking too deeply into it.

The Eagles were shifting to a more traditional football model where there would be a coach in Andy Reid, a general manager in Roseman and a team president in Smolenski who was not involved in football operations. Banner, who had been team President for nearly 11 years, was renowned as one of the league's top executives for his success in both the business operations as well the football operations of the franchise.

He didn't gain any power, his direct report boss just changed.

But that direct report boss isn't as powerful as his predecessor. That's why while Andy didn't gain any new official responsibilities of powers, there's a little more room for Andy's hand in the goody-bag.

Banner was basically co-executive with his best friend Jeff Lurie. He was involved in a lot of football operations, as we are all familiar with.

Smolenski stated in an interview that he doesn't even watch football tape. This guy is much less involved, and as a previous source states, he's much more of a traditional President.

No, there wasn't an announcement that Andy Reid would be assuming more powers or responsibilities as a result of this change.

But yes, the less involved and less influential President means those around him gain a little more involvement and influence, which is where there's talk of Andy's powers growing.

Seems to me like that's the writing on the wall. Although I don't know how it will be justified if he goes out on a bad note.
