We reported back in April that Catherine Raiche would be leaving the Toronto Argonauts (CFL) to join Marc Trestman and the XFL Tampa Bay Franchise. Her role would be Director of Football Operations for the new team. But it looks like those plans have changed.
NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that Raiche would be leaving the XFL for the NFL. The Philiaphia Eagles hired her as their Football Operations Coordinator. “It’s the latest high-profile hire of a woman to an NFL front-office position.”
