Just a couple weeks away from the beginning of the 2014 season, Peter O’Reilly (’94), a former Notre Dame football manager, was named the National Football League’s senior vice president of events.
O’Reilly spent the past nine years as the league’s vice president of fan strategy and marketing. In his new role, he will be responsible for all events run by the league office, including the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, and NFL Draft, among others.
An American Studies major while at Notre Dame, O’Reilly served as head coach Lou Holtz’s associate manager for personnel during his senior year. Here’s a look at the student manager bios included in the 1993 Notre Dame football media guide.
Speaking of media guides, the Fighting Irish will hold their annual Media Day this afternoon beginning at 1 p.m. ET. You can tune in live on WatchND.tv. The afternoon will feature interviews with Irish players and coaches, as well as the unveiling of Notre Dame’s new Under Armour uniforms.
