Jorge Perez To Join Miami Dolphins Executive Staff


You may remember his name, albeit vaguely. Jorge Perez was part of the Stephen Ross contingent that was trying to by the Miami Dolphins a year ago.  For whatever reason, the South Florida developer never became a partner with Ross who bought the Phins outright from Wayne Huizenga.  Today, the Phins are set to announce that Perez will be joining the executive staff along side former Head Coach Don Shula.

Jorge will serve as the teams second “Vice-Chairman” a post currently held solo by Don Shula who will continue to hold that position despite the hiring of Perez.  Perez confirmed that there is still ongoing talks regarding his joining the team as a minority owner.

”I am talking with Ross about becoming vice chairman of the Dolphins and making a substantial investment in the football team as a partner,” Perez said. “But it’s all subject to league approval.”

Team officials say that while talks are ongoing, nothing is imminent.  Perez is a long time friend and business partner of Stephen Ross so the likely addition of Perez to the team as a minority owner is likely at some point.

Perez is well respected in the Miami market and a long time Dolphins fan.

    Sr. Jorge Perez, hace poco me entere de su existencia soy colombiano y por cuestiones del destino hace 2 años funde un equipo de football americano hemos trabajado muy duro con otros 3 clubes de colombia y conseguimos q COLDEPORTES nos reconociera el deporte en el país pero como ud. ya debe saber en Colombia no se consigue nada estamos buscando el apoyo de todos los adeptos a este grandioso deporte queremos llevar el equipo femenino al mundial en el 2010.
    Estamos felices de saber q un colombiano este en tan prestigioso  equipo y en un cargo tan importante.
