The latest episode of our Fortune Unfiltered podcast features an interview with Jed Hughes, vice chairman and global sector leader for sports at executive search firm Korn Ferry.

Before joining Korn Ferry, Hughes once served as a linebacker coach under University of Michigan’s Bo Schembechler. He also received a PhD from the institution.
