Mount Laurel, NJ, Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nine-year NFL veteran safety and well-respected athletics administrator Brad Edwards was named today as the new executive director of NFL Alumni. He succeeds Beasley Reece, who announced his retirement earlier this year.
Founded in 1967, the NFL Alumni (NFLA) is the most well-known and respected retired player organization in professional sports.
Edwards is currently the Director of Athletics and Assistant Vice President at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. He previously served as Athletic Director at Jacksonville University (FL), Senior Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Institutional Advancement at Newberry College (SC), and Senior Associate AD/CFO at the University of South Carolina. During his tenure at George Mason, he led a department that secured more than $42 million in revenue contracts and commitments.
“It is an honor to join NFL Alumni and to serve the retired players and spouses, cheerleaders and coaches who helped build the NFL into the most successful sports enterprise in this country,” said Edwards. “I look forward to expanding the NFLA’s long tradition of ‘Caring for Kids’ and ‘Caring for Our Own’ while contributing meaningfully to alumni development programs around the country.”
Edwards, 56, is a graduate of the University of South Carolina where he majored in Business Administration and holds a Master of Arts in Education from Michigan State University. He also holds an executive certificate in Management and Leadership from MIT’s Sloan School of Management.
“We are very pleased to have Brad Edwards join our national office,” said NFL Alumni Chairman Tracy Porter. “He is very familiar with the NFLA both locally and nationally. We look forward to continued success under his exceptional leadership.”
Edwards was a defensive standout for three NFL teams from 1988-96. He was a second-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 1988. He later signed with the Washington Redskins (now the Commanders) in 1990 and finished his career with the Falcons from 1994-1996. Edwards was the runner-up in the MVP voting in Super Bowl XXVI when he made two key interceptions in Washington’s 37-24 victory over the Bills to end the 1991 season.
Edwards is expected to begin his new position in early October.
(NFL Alumni’s national office is in Mt. Laurel, NJ. It has 42 local chapters located around the country. The NFLA thanks Coleman Peterson and his Hollis Enterprises search firm for their diligent work in identifying new CEO Brad Edwards.)
