NFL promotes ex-Bell Media president Turcke to COO

NFL promotes ex-Bell Media president Turcke to COO

Last year, four weeks after the NFL hired Turcke, the league went through a reorganization that saw BRIAN ROLAPP get promoted to Chief Media & Business Officer.

Turcke, who stepped down from her role with Bell Media in February of 2017 to take the position of President of NFL Media, will see her role with the NFL expanded to lead the marketing, communications, NFL International and Events, human resources and technology departments. She held that position for almost two years after working at Bell since 2005.

Turcke will lead the marketing, communications, human resources, worldwide and events and technology departments.

Turcke has been based in Los Angeles, but will move to the NY offices.

Turcke has overseen NFL Network in the a year ago. Football operations, headed up by Exec VP TROY VINCENT, will not report into Turcke, though it did report into Leiweke. She replaces the departing Tod Leiweke. Tim Leiweke told The Seattle Times two weeks ago it was his top priority to name a "president of the organization - team slash arena" before National Hockey League season-ticket prices are released in April or May.

But he also had downplayed the idea of leaving his job as CEO of the NHL Tampa Bay Lightning to join a Bellevue arena initiative being run by his friend, Jac Sperling. Leiweke has spent a lot of his time recently on the NFL's long-term planning, especially around plans for the league's 100th anniversary celebrations next year.

UPDATE: SBD reported that Leiweke was rumored to be joining his brother Tim with entertainment and live entertainment company Oak View Group. According to the Seattle Times' Geoff Baker, Leiweke is expected to run the Seattle NHL franchise if Oak View Group, which is overseeing the renovation of Key Arena, is awarded an expansion team.
