Jan 27, 2023

Kevin Warren, a sports lawyer who rose within the ranks of the Minnesota Vikings (initially in the GC’s office) before assuming the Commissioner job at the Big Ten Conference, has moved back to the NFL. Specifically, Warren was named President of the Chicago Bears. The Bears shared the following quotes from ownership and Warren in a press release: “Kevin is a man of integrity, respect and excellence, all of which are critical core values of the Chicago Bears, and we welcome his perspective and diverse thought to lead this storied organization,” said Bears Chairman George H. McCaskey. “He is a proven leader who has many times stepped outside of his comfort zone to challenge status quo for unconventional growth and prosperity. In this role, Warren will serve in the primary leadership position of the franchise to help bring the next Super Bowl championship trophy home to Bears fans.” General Manager Ryan Poles added: “Kevin is going to be a tremendous resource and I am excited to get started with him. In my time spent with him during the interview process, it quickly became apparent his resumé and business acumen will be a powerful asset to helping improve our organization and ultimately reach our goal to be a championship organization.” Warren will begin official club business in the spring.
