Report: Steelers Asked to Interview Colts Scouting Director Morocco Brown for GM Job

Morocco Brown

The Pittsburgh Steelers have requested permission to interview Indianapolis Colts executive Morocco Brown for their vacant general manager position, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Brown is the Colts’ director of college scouting and was also a candidate for the Chicago Bears GM position this year and the Atlanta Falcons job last year.

An NC State alum, Brown has been in the NFL since 2000, working with the Colts, Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, and then back to Indianapolis in 2017. With the Wolfpack, Brown was a linebacker from 1994-97.

As director of college scouting, Brown helped the Colts draft players such as Quenton Nelson, Darius Leonard, Barden Smith, Nyheim Hines, Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor.

Brown has one significant tie to the Pittsburgh region, as he is the brother of Pitt men’s basketball associate head coach Milan Brown.

Brown is the fifth external candidate identified for the position, which is expected to open after Kevin Colbert steps down following the 2022 NFL Draft. He joins Tennessee Titans vice president Ryan Cowden, Colts assistant general manager Ed Dodds, Los Angeles Chargers director of player personnel JoJo Wooden and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick as individuals connected to the position.

The Steelers also interviewed internal candidates Brandon Hunt and Omar Khan. The team is not expected to make a hire until after the draft, with Colbert possibly staying on in an advisory role, president Art Rooney II said last month.
