Former Warriors GM leaves fans confused about his role

During a very busy morning in the NFL, the Washington Commanders made a splashy hire to bring in former Warriors executive Bob Myers.

The longtime Golden State president of basketball operations and general manager was a four-time NBA champion and two-time NBA executive of the year while with the franchise.

Myers was hired by Josh Harris, who led an investment group to purchase the Commanders in 2023. Harris is also the managing partner of the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA and the New Jersey Devils in the NHL.

After parting ways with two-time AP NFL Coach of the Year recipient Ron Rivera on Monday morning, Harris and the Commanders are in the midst of a coaching search.

As part of his new duties with the Commanders, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Adam Schefter, Myers will “assist his ownership group” with searches for a new head of football operations and head coach.

“Myers, the architect of four championships with the Warriors and a current ESPN NBA analyst, and Spielman, a 30-year NFL front-office executive, will work with Harris and his limited partners Mitch Rates, Magic Johnson and David Blitzer as part of an advisory committee designed to reshape the Commanders’ front office and coaching staff, team officials told ESPN.

In a search that will commence immediately, Myers will take a lead role in identifying and coordinating interviews with candidates for the top football operations and head-coaching jobs, with Spielman set to work closely with him, officials said.”

Myers will reportedly continue his role as an NBA analyst for ESPN.

While he is potentially not a full-time hire, fans had mixed reactions (some positive and some confused) about Washington bringing him in to help usher in this new chapter of the franchise.
