The XFL named Chargers Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer and Special Advisor JEFFREY POLLACK President & COO. He will oversee the league’s strategic planning and business operations, as well as the management of its eight teams. Pollack, who founded THE DAILY in '94, is also a former NBA, NASCAR, PBR and Caesars Entertainment exec (XFL). The AP's Oskar Garcia: "Very interesting seeing Jeffrey Pollack as president of XFL. Among other things, poker folks remember he did a lot for @WSOP during his time there. November Nine, moving from Binion's to the Rio, player-friendly things like flattening pay structures." The Action Network's Darren Rovell writes, "The XFL is collecting the very smartest names in the business. Will it be enough to be relevant a year from now when it kicks off?" (TWITTER.com, 1/22).
