The Eagles are all about innovation and being ahead of the curve, and Thursday marked a historic day for the organization after several personnel changes were announced.
First Ameena Soliman was promoted to a pro scout after time spent at Temple and as a personnel coordinator for the Eagles.
The Eagles then promoted Catherine Raîche to Vice President of Football Operations. In her new role, Raîche will be involved in all areas of football operations and player personnel, including pro and college scouting, contract management, player/staff development, and football research.
With that promotion, Raiche becomes the new highest-ranking female in personnel in NFL history.
Before joining the Eagles, she spent five years in the Canadian Football League working for the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal Alouettes, including holding the title of Assistant General Manager for the Alouettes. A native of Montreal, Quebec, Raîche completed her law degree at the Universite de Sherbrooke and also earned a master’s degree in tax. She practiced corporate and tax law for three years before making her transition to professional sports in 2015.
