The Tennessee Titans made a move on Thursday to add a longtime NFL executive to their front office. They hired Adolpho Birch as a senior vice president and chief legal officer.
Birch spent 24 years working for the NFL, most recently as a senior VP in charge of labor policy and league affairs. This will mark a homecoming for the veteran executive since Birch is a Nashville native.
The Harvard graduate played roles in helping the NFL form its personal conduct and drug policies while also working on the Collective Bargaining Agreement. He will join a Titans front office that includes GM Jon Robinson and VP of player personnel Ryan Cowden.
This news comes a month after longtime Titans president Steve Underwood retired, ending a 40-year run with the franchise. The Titans elevated Burke Nihill to the president/CEO role. Birch’s experience could make him a fit for this position at some point.
