Sophie Luoto has taken on a new gig with the Rams. Charles Robinson of Yahoo reports (via Twitter) that the executive has been promoted to the role of director of football operations.
Luoto was previously serving as the organization’s manager of football administration, a role she held since 2016. As Charean Williams of ProFootballTalk.com writes, Luoto earned wide praise “for her assistance to Rams’ employees during the Southern California fires in 2018.” She previously spent time with the Berkeley football team.
In her new role, Luoto will presumably be working alongside general manager Les Snead and vice president of football & business administration Tony Pastoors.
Williams also observes that the promotion makes Luoto one of the highest-ranking female executives in the league. She’s joined by Callie Brownson, who’s the chief of staff for new Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.
