The Eagles’ search for a personnel executive to work in the front office with vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has taken them across the state.
Steelers president Art Rooney II said on Thursday that the Steelers granted the Eagles permission to interview pro scouting coordinator Brandon Hunt. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Hunt met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and Roseman on Wednesday.
Hunt has been with the Steelers since 2010 and spent three years as a scout with the Texans before moving to Pittsburgh.
McLane reports that the Eagles have spoken with former Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik, who is expected to stay with ESPN, and that former Browns exec Morocco Brown is on the radar for the personnel opening. It’s not clear what the job title of that eventual hire will be, but the return to prominence of Roseman since the departure of Chip Kelly means it isn’t likely to be one that leaves them in control of the front office.
