Okay, maybe I misread something, but to me it looks like that the promotion part is that Paraag Marathe went from being the "vice president of football operations" to being the "executive vice president of football and business operations".

If I understand the blog post from Matt Maiocco correctly, it means that Marathe now has some say on the business side of the operation as well in addition to his duties as salary cap specialist and in the replay booth.

Well, if you ask me, it looks as nothing changed on the football side, because it looks as if he does not have any new football responsibilities and still reports to GM Scott McCloughan.

But he seems to have some new business responsibilities now, which I think is fine, I mean he is a business grad, after all and I think he did a fine job in our recent contract negotiations.

So I don´t really get what the fuss is all about, he got a promotion (good for him), is more involved in the business side of the Niners, which I think is fine and did not get any extra football responsibilities, which could have been a concern.

If he is now so busy with all that business stuff that we get additional guys in the coaches´ booth for replay challenges, well, extra bonus!

I agree, especially what you said in bold. I have nothing against this promotion, we're not in any kind of salary cap hell, so that's a good sign. But I gotta wonder since this guy has been working here a while, is he even a fan of the team or at least of the sport or is this just a job to him?

It looks like a cost reduction and power shift move. Jed York takes over some of the big picture items from Andy Dolich, and Marathe and the eventual Chief Marketing Officer will handle more of the micro things within the front office. If you remember, Dolich was the Chief Operations Officer before York took on the team president role.

The internal promotion of Marathe while maintaining some current responsibilities seems nothing but a cost-measure move.
Who's with me?

I'm in. The guys a salary cap genius. The Cardinals are losing players left and right because of bad contracst. We have players locked in.

Paraag + Carr = championship!!!

Not NO.............But HAIL..........NO!! Let Sing handle one draft. I like either Graham/ McClain + Lupati/ Edwards in the First....Let Sing/Manusky call the 'D' and Solairi call the 'O' picks. Spiller may sound nice NOW....But P;ease do not draft a returner in the first..
I hope this is a joke. He's awesome at his job, but has nothing to offer in any other football capacity.
