    Ray Anderson is his name. I'm glad that mark will not sit by and let this team suck for a few years under Reggie's plan.

    Raiders intend to make no coaching/GM change, but could bolster front office

    Is also linked to being in the sights of the Jacksonville to for the same position too . Not to surprising here does make some sense that Mark would look to help bring in someone that is also had experience to dealing with the salary cap and player negotiations and some of the Legal duties to help RM in his second season as well as give him (Mark) someone else to help with evaluating his GM and Coaching staff too . That might help preventing him from doing the same thing his father use to do with firing coaches to quickly .

    Ray Anderson

    Executive Vice President – Chief Administrative Officer
    Ray Anderson is the executive vice president-chief administrative officer of the Atlanta Falcons overseeing the legal, facilities, equipment, video, logistic and travel functions. His legal duties include contract negotiations and salary cap administration.
    Anderson joined the Falcons from the Coaches Division of Octagon, where he was director and a sports agent for NFL coaches and players. The list of coaches he represented

    includes Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick, Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy, New York Jets head coach Herman Edwards, Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, and the Falcons’ own assistant coach Mike Johnson. He also represented a number of college coaches, including Washington head coach Tyrone Willingham.
    Los Angeles , CA native, Anderson was an All-League high school quarterback and shortstop. As a scholarship athlete, he was a three-year football letterman and two-year baseball letterman at Stanford University . Anderson earned a BA degree in political science from Stanford in 1976 and a jurist doctorate degree from Harvard Law School in 1979. He began his professional career as an attorney at Kilpatrick & Cody in Atlanta , Georgia and worked primarily in labor law litigation.
    Anderson ‘s entre to sports occurred when he co-founded the sports law practice at Heller, Ehrman, a prominent San Francisco firm, in 1980. He entered the sports agency business in 1984 when he opened the West Coast office for Sports Advisors Group. In 1987, he launched his own agency, AR Sports, specializing in the representation of NFL coaches and players and later adding Major League Baseball players. Anderson merged his agency with Octagon in 2001.
    In November of 2002, Anderson ’s highly respected reputation was recognized when he was named to the NFL Committee on Workplace Diversity which is a comprehensive program to promote diversity in coaching and front office ranks. His influence was further solidified when he was named to Sports Illustrated’s list of the “101 Most Influential Minorities in Sports” in May of 2003.
    Anderson, 51, was also distinguished locally by being named to the prestigious “100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.”, a group dedicated to providing support and improving the quality of life for African-Americans and youth, in p art icular, in the Atlanta community. In February of 2004, he was appointed by Governor Sonny Perdue to the Board of Governors of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority. His past accolades include garnering agent of the year honors by the Black Sports Agents Association in 2000.
    He and his wife, Buffie, have one son, Bryant (19) and one daughter, Kimberly (16). The Andersons reside in Roswell , Georgia .

    No problem posted it also in the other Mark thread on this too so everyone can see the Ray bio . Sounds like he could be a nice addition for us if he doesn't go to the Jags who does have an owner that will toss more money and gives him likely more of a shot like the Browns did with ability to choose his own GM since Gene Smith is going to be fired there and having the #2 overall pick in the draft could be tempting for him too and with knowing the Ownership there is more stable there then it is here for the moment too .

    At least Mark is going for people with a track record of pedigree. Hopefully it will keep RM in balance and be able to get the financial side of the team in the black.

    I do say give the current HC and GM a full season with their draft picks,free agents,etc... As others have said I hope Mark is not as impulsive as his father. Continuity has been a major issue with the team since the Super Bowl loss.

    I wonder who Mark's current advisors are? Madden,Otto????

    Legal, stadium, and administrative stuff is Amy Trask's patch. Wonder if she's moving on, or being limited to just marketing tasks.
