San Francisco 49ers Interested in Hiring Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice in 2009

condoleezza-rice-footbal-NFL.jpgOn the afternoon of January 20, 2009, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will find herself unemployed. She might not be that way for long. Adam Schefter of the NFL Network reported this weekend that the San Francisco 49ers are interested in hiring Rice to serve in a high-level position within the organization.

This is not the first time Rice’s name has been bandied about for a
gig with the National Football League. She told the New York Times in
2002 that her dream job is to be NFL Commissioner. And Condi’s name is still on the short-list of possible candidates to replace Gene Upshaw as executive director of the NFL Player’s Association.

Rice is a long-time football fan who grew up rooting for the Cleveland Browns
and still manages to catch most games on Sundays. After her term as
Secretary of State ends, Rice had been planning to move back to
California, where she previously served as Stanford provost (and had a
hand in hiring former NFL coach Dennis Green, among others).

How
this makes her qualified to run an NFL team is anyone’s guess. Still,
it’s not like the 49ers can get any worse. Maybe throwing a Hail Mary
to Condi is what the organization needs in order to get back on track
after what will likely be their sixth-straight losing season.

For the record, the 49ers issued a soft rebuttal to Schefter’s story, saying:

“We don’t respond to rumors. We have our office structure in place.”

Sounds
like the Niners are spouting the standard non-denial denial of
Washington politicians. In that case, should Condi head to the Bay
Area, she’ll probably feel right at home.
