The National Football League (NFL) is searching for a crisis communications assistant just one day after President Donald Trump’s criticized the league, according to a job posting.
The NFL is hiring a senior communications strategist for its New York City location, a job posted Monday shows. The position requirements include providing crisis communications counsel to leagues executives. The posting comes as Trump continually blasts the NFL and many of its players who have been protesting the national anthem.
“They will work closely with communications department leadership to create messaging to reflect the league’s wide variety of priorities and expedite organizational decision-making,” the job listing reads.
Ratings for the NFL’s Sunday Night Football dropped after Trump’s initial criticism, making the need for a crisis communication assistant timely. Many NFL players are kneeling or staying in their locker rooms in protest during the national anthem, following Trump’s statement that players who do so should be fired.

“If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!” Trump said.
