Pac Pro Football Startup Hires Jamie Hemann As First CEO

Jamie Hemann, who previously spent 11 years at NFL Network, has been hired as the first CEO for Pacific Pro Football, a developmental league formed by agent Don Yee that is set to launch in July '20. Yee and Hemann have known each other for a decade through their NFL connections, which led to conversations about Hemann joining Pac Pro. The league will be for players coming out of high school or college players who are not yet draft-eligible. “This is going to be a great opportunity to give players another platform for them to achieve their goals,” Hemann said. Hemann, formerly NFL Net VP/Media Affairs & Talent, will start on Jan. 1 with an initial focus on finding media partners for the league.
