National Football League promotes Kingston woman Turcke to COO

National Football League promotes Kingston woman Turcke to COO”

Turcke will become the chief operating officer, replacing Tod Leiweke. She held that position for almost two years after working at Bell since 2005. The new job will require her to move from Los Angeles to NY. Turcke's NFL career took a star turn in the year that she has overseen NFL Network.

In addition to her role as president of NFL Media - in which she oversees NFL Network and NFL.com - Turcke now "will expand her role to lead the marketing, communications, human resources, international, events, and technology departments", Goodell said in the memo. As reported by SportsBusiness Daily's John Ourand and Daniel Kaplan, Turcke will become the highest-ranked female executive at the NFL. Football operations, headed up by Exec VP TROY VINCENT, will not report into Turcke, though it did report into Leiweke.

Aside from his three years as the No. 2 ranking executive with the NFL, Leiweke is the former CEO of the Seattle Seahawks and also has a history in hockey as CEO of the Tampa Bay Lightning before leaving in early 2015 to join the NFL office. 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. The NFL did not say where Leiweke is headed, though it has been rumored that he was looking to join his brother TIM, who is CEO of Oak View Group. When he was hired, his primary role was to steady a league that was plagued by domestic violence scandals, putting Goodell under intense scrutiny.

Leiweke is predicted to be joining the Oak View Group, which is managing the renovation of Seattle's KeyArena.

Oak View Group has gained nearly unstoppable momentum the past few months in its attempt to bring an National Hockey League team to Seattle.
