General feeling is it is far too soon. Not because ET can't do the job but rather because of the problems it would cause away from the team (sponsors, advertisers, fans, etc).
While opinion is rather split in the small group that talks about the EE here, its not even close on other, larger EE discussion sites ... the consensus is that it is WAYYY too soon to think of ET.
At this stage names like Bruce Lemmerman who has been heavily involved in player management and administration down south have been popping up. BL is an interesting choice simply because he's got the skill and the tools, not just because he's an ex-Esk.
Ditto for Eric Upton, though in that case some of the thought has been that he could fill the role of Dir/Pres of football operations leaving Rick Lelacheur to handle the business side of the team. (Same could be said for Sean Fleming who's got a strong financial background, but I'm not sure he's going to make the jump.)
Terry Ray's name also came up as he's been heavily involved in scouting down south. But with Hervey and Jones already well connected I don't really see how T-Ray would fit into that upper echelon position without the higher mgmt & admin skills.
