Report: Dolphins Want To Interview Steelers Omar Khan

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Twitter, Pittsburgh Steelers Director of Football and Business Administration Omar Khan is among several people that the Miami Dolphins have requested permission to interview for their vacant general manager job.

Khan, who interviewed last year for the general manager position with the New York Jets, has been with the Steelers since 2001 and over the course of the last few years, has been considered a potential future general manager.

The Dolphins, who mutually parted ways with Jeff Ireland earlier in the week, also reportedly have interest in Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Jason Licht and Cleveland Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer. In addition to them, New York Giants vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross and Tennessee Titans vice president of personnel Lake Dawson will also interview with the Dolphins, as will their current assistant general manager Brian Gaine.

As I mentioned in the previous post, the Steelers know it’s only a matter of time before Khan moves on. In preparation for that eventuality, they hired Samir Suleiman last offseason to serve as an assistant to Khan. Suleiman would presumably succeed Khan whenever he finally lands a general manager position.

    We will all miss the math of Kahn. Hope he stays but if not I guess “next man up” applies for everyone

    They obviously will need someone wise down there to move around some money to absorb the cap hits of the stiffs they overpaid for this past offseason.

    I would think stability would out weigh the total mess of that organization and he stays.

    “math of Khan”… I see what you did there ha

    He can find better. In fact he’s already found better as assistant GM in Pittsburgh. But that’s easy for me to say. Im sure the pay raise and power is intriguing.
