The Kansas City Chiefs have officially wrapped up their front office team for the 2022 season, and the list of personnel changes includes some new faces inside Arrowhead Stadium as the team enters a new year. The Chiefs announced four new hires in addition to five interns who will be a part of the team’s personnel leadership through the season.
Two of those interns are coming through the Norma Hunt Training Camp Fellowship Program, and the team announced the official hire of one participant from last season in Madison Aponte. The goal of the program is to break through the patriarchal hold that describes most front offices—including Kansas City’s—by providing greater access to training for women.
The Kansas City Chiefs announced the latest additions to the personnel staff for the 2022 season.
Specifically, Aponte has been hired as a Player Personnel Assistant after helping the team in training camp and the 2022 NFL Combine.
After eight years in the college ranks, Will Christopherson has joined the Chiefs as an NFS Scout. NFL teams have a scout responsible for the submission of scouting reports on college prospects to National Football Scouting, the organization that runs the Combine. The feedback from the entire league helps select who receives an invite or not and the shared scouting service gives teams an overall baseline of perspective from across the league. Christopherson was hired away from the University of Maryland where he was Director of Player Personnel Operations for the last three seasons.
Jonathan Howard brings a decade of scouting experience to the Chiefs after previously serving with the Carolina Panthers in ’21 and the New England Patriots for years before that. He was hired as a new national scout for the team.
As the new Football Administration Coordinator, Jack Wolov has interned for a few teams—including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins—before working with the agents at Athletes First since 2019.
