The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly conducted a second interview with Doug Whaley for their general manager vacancy on Wednesday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Whaley is the third external candidate to receive or be scheduled for a second interview.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vice president John Spytek and Tennessee Titans vice president Ryan Cowden are the other two option from outside the organization thus far that have emerged from the initial round of 16. Omar Khan and Brandon Hunt are also being considered internally.
Currently serving as an executive with the XFL ahead of its 2023 revival, Whaley was most recently the general manager of the Buffalo Bills from 2013-17. Whaley spent ten seasons with the Steelers as a pro personnel coordinator prior to his stint in Buffalo.
A Pittsburgh native, Whaley attended Upper St. Clair High School before playing collegiately as a defensive back at the University of Pittsburgh.
