yeah, he's my favorite as well. but i do ike we are looking around a good bit. jimmy raye is an interesting candidate, though.

Pretty sure he was one of the sham interviews they did when they were installing Hurney for his second run.

But yeah, he'd actually be a pretty good candidate. Heck, I'd take him at another executive position even if he didn't get the Assistant GM job.

Not trying to sound like a smartass here but what exactly is the purpose of a GM's assistant?

Not GM assistant, Assistant GM. Basically the second in command.

right.

I meant that.

So what does an Assistant GM do exactly?

I know the GM has the final say on things but I'm just curious...

That varies by team.

In some team structures (the Giants for example) the Assistant GM is a cap guy who oversees and negotiates contracts. We already have a guy who does that though.

Morgan is a personnel guy, so my guess would be that his duties here would probably involve oversight of college and pro scouting, basically an extra level of management and an extra set of eyes.

I know most dont care about this or practice squad stuff, but I do.

Thanks for the updates Scott and Juan.

Like @BurnNChinn posted, it starting to feel like GM search.....and Morgan is no longer the top choice. Im all for casting a wide net and it doesnt hurt getting someone form a different team than who you normally steal form. Matt berry hasnt been mentioned, hes my pick.

I don't know if Morgan is no longer the top choice or if they're just covering their bases / doing due diligence, etc.

Morgan and Fitterer are close friends who have worked together before, but of course Matt Rhule does have to sign on as well.

Not to mention Tepper too. It seems they are looking for forward thinking high IQ person thats not scare to dis-agree with them. Morgan does feel like Finesser is hiring one of frat boys as a favor. Honestly I forgot the guys name and this is 'old" thinking, Ryan Cowden(had to cheat) is another one I thought always had a good resume. For me in the last few drafts Chargers, Vikings, Ravens, and.......ugh the Saints... all have drafted very well, pick out who has helped the most and give him a tepper bag.  Bring in a outsiders rather than Philly(why keep going there??) and NE pool.

Looks like GM search all over again 

Tepper didn't let Rhule just hire his mate, Peters. I doubt he's just going to let Fitterer hire his mate Morgan without an extensive search.

Exactly. Don't forget how they talked about learning a lot during the GM search about how other organizations operate. Maybe they're trying to glean more knowledge.

The presumption is Rhule has final say.

Org chart:

 Tepper > Rhule > Fitterer/GM > Assistant GM

----------------------------

If Rhule really does have final say the GM and Asst. GM are really serving in senior scouting/analytical roles...

...fancy titles but their responsibilities don't correlate with those who have similar titles at other NFL franchises who are employing the "traditional" (archaic) NFL model.

They’re just being interviewed due to the Rooney Rule. If we’re smart, we’d start hiring some good minorities so when they get hired elsewhere we will get comp picks in return.

Quit trying to make this seem difficult. We all know it’s Dan Morgan. Even the other candidates know. They’re just being interviewed due to the Rooney Rule. If we’re smart, we’d start hiring some good minorities so when they get hired elsewhere we will get comp picks in return. 

You have no idea who Jeff King is, do you?
