According to the Detroit Lions website, Mike Disner has been promoted from Vice President of Football Administration to Senior Vice President of Football and Business Administration as part of the team’s front office restructuring.

A Bloomfield Hills native, Disner has 12 years of NFL front office experience and is considered one of the “rising stars” who is “shaping the direction of the NFL”. He was hired by the Lions in 2018, after six years as the Arizona Cardinals capologist, and was tasked with heading up the player contract negotiations and handling the Lions salary cap.

Disner was also a member of the Lions search team that helped identify general manager Brad Holmes and coach Dan Campbell, and is someone team president Rod Wood and principal owner Shelia Ford Hamp praised at multiple press conferences.

Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer tweeted out the front office hierarchy, which matches a previous MMQB article from earlier in the month:

One other notable change is that Jimmy Raye III, senior personnel executive, is no longer listed on the team’s website.

John Dorey, who was officially announced yesterday, now holds that title.
