A computer will be a requirement for NFL guidance counselors after a computer expert was selected to be the team’s lead computer specialist, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The team has agreed to pay a $200,000 stipend to the computer specialist to help ensure the computer is up to par, according a source.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not public.
The computer specialist is expected to be a college graduate who will also be able to run a website and work as a video consultant.
He will not be required to complete the required training in the field of human resources, but will be required for an internal audit of the computer’s performance, according the source.
The NFL has not confirmed the hiring of the professional computer specialist.
The source said the agreement includes an additional $250,000 in stipends for the employee who completes the training.
The person familiar with the situation said the contract includes a provision that will allow the computer specialists to work for the team if the NFL does not hire a team computer specialist within the next two years.
