FORMER NFL EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR SCOTT PIOLI JOINS "FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA"

Longtime NFL Front Office Veteran Also to Appear Regularly on Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network

Stamford, Conn. - June 17, 2013 - Longtime NFL front office veteran and former NFL Executive of the Year Scott Pioli is joining Football Night in America, NBC's NFL studio program and the most-watched regularly-scheduled studio program in sports. He will also appear regularly on Pro Football Talk, NBC Sports Network's daily NFL program hosted by ProFootballTalk.com founder and NFL Insider Mike Florio.

Pioli, who helped the New England Patriots win three Super Bowls as head of their player personnel department and who most recently served as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, will provide insight across both Football Night and Pro Football Talk into the workings of NFL teams' front offices.

"Scott is an intelligent, articulate and well-respected NFL front office veteran, who brings a new element to our NFL coverage," said Sam Flood, executive producer, NBC Sports & NBC Sports Network. "We are thrilled to welcome him to our team. His front-office voice will complement those of our former head coach, former players, and NFL Insiders."

During 22 NFL seasons, Pioli accrued an expertise in player personnel evaluation, salary cap management and contract negotiating. His tenure includes time spent with the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, New England Patriots, and Kansas City Chiefs. Pioli won NFL Executive of the Year honors numerous times during his career from national media outlets, including Sports Illustrated, Pro Football Weekly and The Sporting News.

"After more than two decades serving in NFL front offices, I'm excited to be part of the coverage of the league by joining NBC Sports' NFL team and the NBC family," said Pioli. "I look forward to sharing my experiences of the inner workings of NFL front offices to viewers and fans."

Pioli will appear on Pro Football Talk today, and will make additional appearances before the start of the 2013 season. During the season, he will settle into a Monday rotation.
