ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- After the Broncos' first OTA this Wednesday through Friday, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway is heading to the University of Pennsylvania this weekend for the annual NFL Career Development Symposium.
Elway is one of seventy NFL executives and coaches attending the event, which was described as "an important part of preparing the next generation of NFL head coaches and general managers" by NFL Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources officer Robert Gulliver.
Elway will also be among the speakers at the event, with others including Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam, Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff and Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid.
“The Career Development Symposium is and continues to build on the progress we have made over the past decade in developing talent,” Gulliver said.
The three-day program connects aspiring head coaches and general managers through "presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions and networking opportunities."
“The development of this diverse pool of coaching and front office talent keeps the NFL strong now and into the future,” NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said.
Participants are selected by the NFL office after NFL clubs submit nominations from their staffs.
