Dolphins promote Chris Grier to general manager
The Miami Dolphins have promoted director of college scouting Chris Grier to general manager. He reports directly to executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum. “I want to thank Stephen Ross and Mike Tannenbaum for this tremendous opportunity,” Grier said. “I love this organization and feel I am the right man for this job. South Florida is very important to me and my family and I look forward to working with our personnel and coaching staff to add talent to the roster.” “I am really proud that Chris will lead our player personnel at both the college and pro level,” Tannenbaum said . “Chris is a passionate personnel executive that is highly respected throughout the NFL. His experience within the organization, background and approach to building a team made him the unquestioned choice to be our next General Manager.” Grier recently finished his 16th season with the Dolphins and ninth as director of college scouting. Grier is the son of Bobby Grier, the former vice president-player personnel with the New England Patriots who currently is the associate director of pro scouting with the Houston Texans.
