The Philadelphia Eagles are making a notable addition on the first day of 2019 training camp. It’s not a roster signing, though. Rather, the Eagles are hiring Catherine Raiche to a front office position, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Eagles hired Catherine Raiche as their football operations coordinator, per league sources. It’s the latest high-profile hire of a woman to an NFL front-office position. Raiche was assistant GM for the Montreal Alouettes, then worked for Toronto Argonauts and Tampa XFL franchise.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 25, 2019
Raiche, 30, is a native of Quebec, Canada. She worked in business law prior to getting her start in the Canadian Football League as an intern back in 2015.
It’s cool to see the Eagles among the NFL teams making an effort to increase diversity in the workplace. Philadelphia prioritizes stocking their front office pipeline and Raiche is just the latest addition to a talented group.
As a football operations member, Raiche will work under Eagles executive vice president/general manager Howie Roseman and vice president of football operations Andrew Berry.
