Trail Blazers beat reporter, The Oregonian

POSITION: Trail Blazers beat reporter, The Oregonian
PAY: Commensurate with experience.
JOB DESCRIPTION: The Oregonian is hiring a beat reporter to join our coverage team on the Trail Blazers, which has one of the most passionate and educated fanbases in the NBA. We want someone with the competitive drive to help us remain the leading source of Trail Blazers news, serving readers digitally focused updates and regular enterprise-driven must-reads. A self-starter who will expand on our tradition of telling readers not only what happens on and off the court, but why it’s happening and most importantly what it means. Priorities are to break news, set the agenda on the beat, and build, maintain and engage an active and hungry online audience. Preferred candidates will have at least five years of experience covering a primary beat at a sports-focused dotcom or major metro newspaper. We hope to fill this position during training camp in early October. Send a resume, references, cover letter and five clips or links to an online portfolio of work to sports editor Seth Prince at [email protected] by Sept. 23. Please put “Trail Blazers reporter” in the subject line.

It appears Jason Quick is going back to the Blazers.

Jason Quick ‏@jwquick

Have to say I thoroughly enjoyed covering this Oregon football team. What a class bunch of young men. They were fun, engaging & interesting

Jason Quick ‏@jwquick

Part of me wishes I would stick on them to see what will probably be a memorable run next season. But ... I am headed back to the Blazers.

Sounds positively thrilled.

So the question now is who did the Oregonian hire to cover Oregon football?

I wouldn't be surprised if they moved one of their other No. 2 people over. I know Schnell would do a great job with that beat.

Young gun Andrew Greif, formerly of the Corvallis Gazette-Times and The Register-Guard copy desks plus a contributor for Dime, has been on the beat with Quick since the summer. Maybe they're going with one writer?

With no publicity for this position (unlike for the Blazers job), my bet is that it will be an internal hire.

Well, it's not going to be her. She posted on Twitter that she's headed to Sports Illustrated:
