He has been a loyal and long-term employee of the Packers. And he soon could be getting his shot.
Packers director of operations John Dorsey is in demand, in at least two locations. Per a league source, the G.M. position in Kansas City will be his if he wants it — and if the Chiefs nail down a deal with coach Andy Reid.
That means Scott Pioli would be out, and that Reid would have significant influence over the hiring of a personnel executive who, as owner Clark Hunt said earlier this week, will report directly to the owner along with the head coach.
But Dorsey has other options. Dorsey will interview with the Jets as early as Friday; this confirms a report from CBSSports.com.
It’s unclear where Dorsey stands in relation to other candidates to succeed Mike Tannenbaum in New York. As we understand it, the Jets are casting a very wide net in search of someone who will welcome the opportunity to work with Rex Ryan.
Given the current status of the roster, they may need a bigger net.
