John Wojciechowski

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan to interview Green Bay Packers executive John Wojciechowski for their general manager position, according to a report by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Wojciechowski has been with the Packers sine 2012, rising from college scout to director of pro personnel in 2017 and to co-director of player personnel in 2018.

Before his time with the Packers, Wojciechowski was a college scout for the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars after getting his start in the NFL with the Steelers as a player personnel assistant in 1996.

A 1992 Plum graduate, Wojciechowski was a first-team all-conference football and baseball player for the Mustangs before moving onto Duquesne, where he played defensive end and was a three-year captain for the Dukes. He was also a catcher and designated hitter for the Duquesne baseball team.

In Green Bay, Wojciechowski helped the team select Pro Bowl offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and J.C. Tretter in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Davante Adams, A.J. Dillon, Ty Montgomery and Marquez Valdez-Scantling were also day two and three selections of the Packers during his tenure.

Wojciechowski is one of a number of external candidates for the Steelers general manager position, which is expected to open after Kevin Colbert steps down following the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Steelers have also interviewed or requested to interview Tennessee Titans vice president Ryan Cowden, Indianapolis Colts assistant general manager Ed Dodds and director of college scouting Morocco Brown, Los Angeles Chargers director of player personnel JoJo Wooden and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick.

Internally, pro scouting director Brandon Hunt and vice president Omar Khan have both interviewed for the position, as well, giving the team a total of eight candidates for the position.

The Steelers are not expected to announce a new hire until after the 2022 NFL Draft in late April, president Art Rooney II said after the end of the season.
