The Rams continue to look for a new G.M. And they’ve now set their sights on a guy who almost became the G.M. of the Seahawks.
According to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Rams have requested permission to interview Steelers director of business and administration Omar Khan. In St. Louis, Khan would be paired with new coach Jeff Fisher (pictured).
Khan has long been linked to former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, with a widespread belief in league circles that if/when Cowher returns to coaching, his first call will be to Khan.
The question of whether Khan goes to the Rams could depend on whether the Rams give Khan final say over the roster. If Khan isn’t getting final say (at least in writing, Parcells/Ireland-style), the Steelers could block the move.
