    I could be wrong, but doesn't this job come open quite frequently?

    The outgoing SE has been there about three years. Not sure about before that.

    The ASE job was open more recently, though.

    Departing SE was there less than 2 years. He was No. 5 in this century.
  5. Where is the SE going?

    In the last 72 months, the Herald News sports editors have lasted 14.4 months.

    I would presume that it's because people are moving up in the Bergen Record food chain. And that's a good food chain in which to be.

    If I had supervisory experience, I'd be all over this.

    Did any of those previous ones move up?

    The outgoing SE is not going to the Record.
