Seahawks scout Jim Nagy named Senior Bowl executive director

Jim Nagy has been named the executive director of the Senior Bowl, the Mobile Arts & Sports Association announced Tuesday. Nagy is currently the southeast area scout for the Seattle Seahawks, and has been an NFL scout for nearly two decades.

“Jim is a proven and respected 18-year NFL scouting veteran with long-standing relationships across the league, among college coaches nationwide, and with certified player agents,” Mobile Arts & Sports Commission chairman Angus Cooper said in a statement. “His positive leadership skills acquired under legendary coaches like Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll will be a huge asset to the Reese’s Senior Bowl.

“Jim has excellent interpersonal skills required to establish trusted contacts at universities and across the agent community and has a strong team, goal and action-oriented approach he developed at the most competitive level of football."

In addition to his work with the Seahawks, Nagy has also worked as a West Coast scout for the Washington Redskins, a Midwest scout for the New England Patriots and a national scout for the Kansas City Chiefs.

“I am extremely humbled to be the new Executive Director of the Reese’s Senior Bowl,” Nagy said. “I view this position as a stewardship to the City of Mobile, my family’s home the past 11 years, and the National Football League and I will bring great passion to both roles.

“The Reese’s Senior Bowl has been the preeminent college all-star game for the past 68 years and our staff will strive to improve the event for the National Football League and the local Mobile community on a yearly basis.”

In addition to Nagy, the Senior Bowl also announced the hiring of former Mississippi State head coach Sylvester Croom as senior vice president of operations.

Nagy replaces Phil Savage, who resigned from his post earlier this month.
