Editor-in-chief Keith Schleiden manages the PFW editorial team and oversees all content planning for the company's print and web products. A graduate of Marquette University with degrees in journalism and political science, Schleiden joined Pro Football Weekly in 1993 after working in the sports departments of the Milwaukee Sentinel and Cheboygan (Mich.) Daily Tribune. During his time with PFW, Schleiden has covered 14 Super Bowls and has been on site for the NFL draft, the Scouting Combine and the Senior Bowl. One of his favorite PFW memories is being cussed at by then-Cowboys head coach Barry Switzer for admitting that he checked "Bootlegger's Boy," Switzer's autobiography, out of the library instead of buying the book to do research for a feature story. When not obsessing over all things football, Schleiden quarterbacks a family of five that includes his wife, two sons and a daughter.
