Lawrie McMenemy was Director Of Football at Southampton between 1993-1997, but before that, David Dein was also charged with taking on the duties of Director Of Football during his reign as Chairman of Arsenal from 1983 onwards, although he was never officially noted as being a Director Of Football.

So the first would be Lawrie McMenemy.

What are the origins of the Super Bowl?

At one time there were two professional leagues in American football, the National Football League and the American Football League. As would be expected the two Leagues competed for players and for fans. Representatives from the two leagues met and worked out a merger agreement where the leagues would combine and play as one. One of the conditions of the merger was that the champion of both leagues would play a game to determine the champion of American football. This game was called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game for the first four years. After the merger was completed, the name of the game was officially changed to the Super Bowl.
