Mike Borgonzi

Assistant General Manager


Mike Borgonzi enters his 15th season with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2023. He was promoted to Assistant General Manager in 2021 after serving three seasons as the club's Director of Football Operations (2018-20) and three seasons as the club's Director of Player Personnel (2017)/Co-Director of Player Personnel (2015-16). 

In his current capacity, Borgonzi supervises and directs the club's college and professional scouting operations while closely supporting and advising General Manager Brett Veach with the club's roster management and player acquisition via the NFL Draft, NFL free agency, street free agency, waiver claims and trades. Borgonzi has now played a role in putting together two Super Bowl winning rosters and was involved in curating Chiefs teams that have participated in three of the last four Super Bowls.

The 2022 draft class had a lot of young talent that made an immediate impact. Their offseason moves culminated when the Chiefs faced the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII with four rookies in the starting lineup (Isiah Pacheco, George Karlaftis, Trent McDuffie and Jaylen Watson). The Chiefs played a total of eight rookies throughout the Super Bowl victory, which included a touchdown by rookie RB Isiah Pacheco and a forced fumble from CB Trent McDuffie.

Prior to his current role, Borgonzi spent one year as Director of Football Operations. He then took on the entirety of the Director of Player Personnel position in 2017 after serving alongside current Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach as Co-Director of Player Personnel for two years (2015-16).

Borgonzi served as the club's Assistant Director of Pro Scouting (2013-14) and as the club's Pro Personnel Scout (2011-12) where he evaluated all professional players, recommended free agents, oversaw free agent workouts, evaluated college players, and assisted the coaching staff with advance scouting reports for the teams' upcoming opponents.

In 2010, he served as the club's Manager of Football Operations where he coordinated team logistics, assisted in budget planning for various departments, oversaw day-to-day operations on the football side and wrote player evaluation reports on a weekly basis for the club's advance scouting.

Borgonzi joined the Chiefs in 2009, serving as the club's College Scouting Administrator where he worked closely with the College Director and college scouts to ensure proper planning of the college department while assisting in player evaluation reports on both the college and pro side.

Prior to joining the Chiefs, Borgonzi served two seasons as the Assistant Recruiting Coordinator at Boston College (2007-08) where the team played in the ACC Championship twice and won the 2007 Champs Bowl. Before working in the financial sector in Boston for several years, he served as the tight ends coach at Amherst College in 2002.

The Everett, Mass., native was a four-year starter as a fullback on the Brown University Football Team, earning All-Ivy League honors three times. Borgonzi's brother, Dave, is currently the linebackers coach for the Chicago Bears.
