Former Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli has found a new gig.
But don’t worry, it isn’t as the GM of a football team.
Alex Marvez of Fox Sports is reporting that Pioli has been hired by SiriusXM NFL Radio:
Scott Pioli has a new job.
The former Kansas City Chiefs general manager has signed to work with SiriusXM NFL Radio, FOXSports.com has learned. Pioli will begin providing analysis Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
We got the feeling Pioli was angling to find a roll somewhere as an analyst. He appeared on NFL Network to talk about the offseason talent evaluation process on Friday, January 25th, as noted by the awesome Pioli graphic above, created for us by AA’s Art Director Tony Rangel.
We didn’t hear any reports of Pioli interviewing with NFL teams this offseason. While that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, Pioli may want to take some time off following the disastrous end to his tenure in Kansas City. Taking a job as an analyst would enable Pioli to stay involved in the NFL talent evaluation process while not actually working as a GM.
If Pioli is covering the Scouting Combine, then you can bet he’ll be covering the NFL Draft and that means he will get the opportunity to weigh in on what the Chiefs do in April.
That will be very interesting to hear.
Will you guys turn to Scott Pioli for all your draft analysis needs?
