NEW YORK – Chief Financial Officer Anthony Noto is leaving the NFL after two years to return to Goldman Sachs.
The league said Monday that Eric Grubman will oversee the finance group at least until the end of collective bargaining negotiations with the NFL Players Association. Grubman is executive vice president of business operations and led the league's finance operations when he joined the NFL in 2004.
Noto will leave Oct. 4 to serve as a partner in Goldman Sachs' investment banking division and co-head of the firm's Global Media Group. He also held the title of executive vice president of finance with the NFL.
Grubman is also a Goldman Sachs alum. In his 14 years there, he led the firm's sports business and played a major role in negotiating the sales of several NFL teams.
