Panthers also interviewed Omar Khan


Recommended Posts

Here's how it breaks down between talent evaluators and cap/analytics types among the remaining candidates...

Personnel Guys:

Jerry Reese, Former General Manager, New York Giants
Joe Schoen, Assistant General Manager, Buffalo Bills
Monti Ossenfort, Director of Player Personnel, Tennessee Titans
Jeff Ireland, Assistant General Manager for College Personnel, New Orleans Saints
Adam Peters, Vice President of Player Personnel, San Francisco 49ers
Ryan Poles, Assistant Director of Player Personnel, Kansas City Chiefs
Pat Stewart, Director of Player Personnel, Panthers
Scott Fitterer, Vice President of Football Operations, Seattle Seahawks


"Outside the Box" Guys:

Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, Vice President of Football Operations, Cleveland Browns
Brandt Tilis, Director of Football Administration, Kansas City Chiefs
Champ Kelly, Assistant Director of Player Personnel, Chicago Bears
Samir Suleiman, Director of Player Negotiations / Salary Cap Manager, Panthers
Omar Khan, Vice President of Football & Business Administration, Pittsburgh Steelers

 

For the record, both of the interviewees who have since removed themselves from the search were personnel guys.

The GM "search" from 2018 was such a farce in comparison. 

This tells me they are doing their due-diligence and taking their time looking for the right guy to turn it all around. 

I was worried that they had THE guy that they wanted to interview but just couldn't due to that guy still being stuck in the playoffs but the fact that they went ahead and interviewed two more legitimate candidates say they really are kicking all the tires out there.

Hopefully we find something out this week.

I want Poles as assistant GM regardless of who else we hire. There are several guys who could be “GM” that I’d be happy with, though still holding out hope for Colbert.

You mean the one we only did because the Fritz Pollard Alliance called Jerry Richardson on his bullsh-t?

I've long believed that role would go to Pat Stewart.

Hiring candidates for a position that you didn't actually interview them for is a little tricky. Other teams could likely block that sort of thing if they wanted to.

So much This. We are doing homework and not putting on a show. We didn’t hire a firm to give us a set list which kinda makes me happier.

this is ridiculous

That the list of interviewees has reached 15 indicates Tepper has a very well-defined box/job-description for which he is going about finding the exact right guy to fit within said box.

Makes perfect sense.

The model/system is in place, need to find the right cog/part-number to complete the engine.

Wow this is ridiculous, I don’t think they really have a clue. Tepper only has money and this team might go downhill fast with him running it 

i get the impression you’ve never hired someone

Yeah it don’t take that many interviews to see who is the one, especially not the NFL. Well that’s if you have no clue of what ur doing.
