NEW ORLEANS, LA — In partnership with the Black College Football Hall of Fame, the NFL will be hosting the inaugural Ozzie Newsome General Manager Forum and the fourth annual Quarterback Coaching Summit.

Both events will start today, June 21, and ends on Wednesday, June 23.

The event itself will involve front office personnel and coaches from the NFL and NCAA. There will be virtual programs to experience professional development and networking opportunities with NFL club executives.

This year, participants will learn best practices used by quarterback coaches, offensive coordinators, head coaches, and general managers.

The Forum, born out of the existing Quarterback Coaching Summit in its fourth year, will host a few dozen rising names in the personnel world for a day-long panel. The Forum aims to provide a platform to identify quality minority candidates and equip them with the necessary tools to improve.

The Summit will feature various topics, including how to build a coaching staff and a winning culture, the qualities of a head coach, and networking opportunities for career advancement.

Both events are started by Black College Football Hall of Fame co-founders Doug Williams and James "Shack" Harris. They collaborate with several longtime Black coaches and executives, put together a summit for Black coaches to share information and enhance hiring opportunities.

The NFL then became involved the following year, and each year the program has been refined to meet the needs of its growing participation list.

The below New Orleans Saints representatives will be participating in the events:

Khai Harley (Saints vice president of football administration) – GM Forum

D.J. Williams (Saints offensive assistant) – QB Summit

Ronald Curry (Saints quarterbacks coach) – QB Summit
