Steelers vice president Omar Khan has interviewed for a second general manager position, after narrowly missing out on the first opportunity this offseason.
Khan interviewed with the Houston Texans and was reportedly one of two finalists for the position before the club eventually hired New England executive Nick Caserio.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Khan was the favorite for the job after interviews, but that executive vice president Jack Easterby went off the board to hire Caserio, who the Texans had sought out the last time they hired a general manager.
Now Khan is one 15 to have interviewed for the Carolina Panthers’ general manager position. The Panthers are owned by former Steelers minority shareholder David Tepper.
The Panthers expect to make a decision this week on a new general manager to replace Marty Hurney, who was fired in December.
