Now entering his 24th NFL season, Bob Lange begins his 11th year with the Philadelphia Eagles and his third as the Senior Vice President of Communications. Lange returned to Philadelphia in 2021 after previously serving eight seasons with the Eagles from 2001-08.
Lange leads the organization's communications strategies and serves as the Eagles' liaison with local, national, and international media entities. He oversees a department that is responsible for promoting the team's on-field performances as well as publicizing community outreach initiatives, such as the Eagles Autism Foundation and Eagles Care, and developing visibility for the Eagles brand, business operations, and Lincoln Financial Field, including its special events calendar.
Prior to his return to Philadelphia, Lange spent 12 years with the San Francisco 49ers (2009-20), including the final six as vice president of communications. During his tenure with the 49ers, Lange oversaw all facets of the organization's communications efforts, including San Francisco's award-winning Community Impact Team, which was named ESPN Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year in 2017 and won the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Steve Patterson Award for Sports Philanthropy in 2013. Lange also spearheaded all publicity efforts associated with Levi's Stadium from pre-construction to its operation and associated business streams.
Under his direction, Lange's team managed Levi's Stadium communications efforts for a variety of world-class events, such as the Super Bowl, the College Football Playoff National Championship, WrestleMania, college bowl games, and large-scale concerts. In addition, the stadium received numerous accolades propelled by publicity campaigns, including the honor of Sports Business Journal 2015 Sports Facility of the Year and Venue of the Year at the 2015 Stadium Business Awards.
