Rams coach Jeff Fisher, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy have been added to the NFL’s Competition Committee.
Fisher was the co-chair of the committee from 2002 to 2010, while he was head coach of the Titans. He stepped away from the NFL for a year in 2011 but is now back in the NFL and back on the committee. He will apparently not be resuming the position of co-chair, however; Falcons G.M. Rich McKay is now listed as the sole chairman of the committee.
Whisenhunt has served on the coaches’ subcommittee of the Competition Committee, which advises the full committee on the viewpoints of NFL coaches. Murphy was an NFL player for eight seasons before going into management.
In addition to McKay, Fisher, Whisenhunt and Murphy, the members of the Competition Committee are Dallas’s Stephen Jones, Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis, the Giants’ John Mara, Baltimore’s Ozzie Newsome and Houston’s Rick Smith.
