JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that Regis Eller, director of player personnel, will be invited to the NFL's Front Office & General Manager Accelerator during the Dec. 11-13 league meeting in Dallas.
The Accelerator continues the NFL's efforts to strengthen the pipeline of diverse candidates across all levels of the league. As part of the opportunity, Eller will participate in curated programs and networking sessions with team owners and executives. It is his second time participating having attended the inaugural program last year with Jaguars' defensive coordinator Mike Caldwell.
Eller is in his third season with the Jaguars' scouting department after spending four years as the assistant director of pro scouting with the Los Angeles Chargers.
In addition to networking, candidates will participate in a range of personal and professional development programming, including practice interviews led by former general managers and leadership sessions from outside experts. For the first time, personal development workshops have been included to focus on candidates' overall wellness and mental preparedness when applying for roles.
In a refresh to the selection process, all 32 Clubs were asked to nominate individuals internal and external to their organizations, which were then vetted by an NFL selection committee.
For this cohort, 42 highly qualified candidates of diverse backgrounds, across player personnel, football operations and assistant general manager disciplines were selected for the opportunity to build relationships with club owners and executives ahead of the hiring cycle.
This is the fourth time the NFL has put on the event since it was launched in 2022 and follows the Coach Accelerator that was held May 2023 in Minneapolis.
