NFL tracking information tech specialist is on the move

TECHNICIAN is on his way out of the NFL.

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced on Wednesday that they have hired Mark Hays, who spent nine years at the Philadelphia Eagles as their information technology department chief.

Hays was the only full-time employee at the team in the offseason, but the team said he would still be on staff as a consultant.

Hays had been with the Eagles since 2006.

He will replace Jeff Bostic, who left in 2018.

Hates will report to general manager Kevin Colbert.

He was in charge of the team’s information technology during the 2017 season, when the team won its first Super Bowl.

He also served as a vice president at the New York Jets.

The Steelers hired former NFL executive vice president for technology Eric Rabe to run the organization.
