Report: Seahawks lining up GM interviews


The Seattle Seahawks are lining up general manager candidates to interview as they stand poised to introduce USC's Pete Carroll as their new head coach.

Patriots senior football advisor Floyd Reese is scheduled to interview this week, a source close to the situation told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Reese is the Tennessee Titans former general manager who has spent the past year with the Patriots.

The Seahawks will interview Omar Khan, the Steelers' business and football administration coordinator, on Monday and Tuesday, a source told's John Clayton on Sunday.

Khan, 32, handles all the contract negotiations for Pittsburgh and is respected around the league for his ability to get deals done.

The Seahawks also are expected to bring in John Schneider, the director of football operations for the Packers, sources told Clayton.

Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross will interview for the position Wednesday, according to John Wooten, the chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance -- the group designed to ensure that teams abide by the Rooney Rule.

The Seahawks forced Tim Ruskell to resign as general manager early last month before finishing the season 5-11. They went 4-12 record in 2008.

Their head coaching vacancy was created Friday when Jim Mora was fired. NFL sources confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter early Saturday morning that Carroll had reached an agreement in principle to become their next coach.
