Yet another member of the Steelers’ front office has received a call to get an interview for a general manager position, as Steelers’ pro scouting coordinator Brandon Hunt was interviewed for the Raiders open general manager position on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
As the pro scouting coordinator, Hunt oversees all of the Steelers’ trades, free-agent signings, and more. Among his resume is being the main advocate for trading for Dolphins’ safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. The Steelers’ pro scouting in recent years has been strong.
Just this year, their trade for Ahkello Witherspoon and singing of Montravius Adams proved to be pivotal for a team that was undermanned down the stretch. The signing of Chris Wormley was also one that was a diamond in the rough.
There is also plenty going for Hunt in Pittsburgh, who is viewed as one of the main candidates for the Steelers’ general manager position with Kevin Colbert likely retiring after the 2022 NFL Draft.
Steelers vice president Omar Khan is also expected to be a candidate to replace Colbert, and has also been a GM candidate elsewhere. He interviewed with the Chicago Bears on Monday, but ultimately did not get the job. Khan has interviewed with multiple other teams in the past.
