As per the terms of his agreement, Dominik’s appearances won’t be limited to NFL Insiders. He will also contribute to NFL Live, SportsCenter, ESPN Radio and ESPN Insider on ESPN.com. Seth Markman, Senior Coordinating Producer for ESPN’s NFL Studio programs noted Dominik’s extensive experience in NFL’s front offices in discussing with reporters why he was brought on board. “Mark has almost two decades of experience moving up the ranks in an NFL organization, so he’s well-versed in scouting, free agency, player development and so many of the issues we delve into each day on NFL Insiders,” he said. “He adds another credible voice to our team and will make us even better.”
Dominik shared his own thoughts on joining NFL Insiders, noting how his experience will benefit the show. He said of his new job, “I am excited to join ESPN and look forward to sharing my perspective on the kinds of issues and decisions general managers face daily within their organizations.”
