Saints assistant G.M. of college personnel Jeff Ireland is slated for a conversation with another NFC South team about their General Manager position.

A report on Sunday indicated the Panthers wanted to interview Ireland for the opening created by the in-season firing of Marty Hurney. Albert Breer of SI.com reports that they’ve formally requested the interview and that it is likely to take place on Tuesday.

The initial report also said they wanted to interview 49ers vice president of player personnel Adam Peters and Colts assistant G.M. Ed Dodds. They’ve requested an interview with Dodds and Breer reports they’re set to interview Peters on Wednesday.

Ireland is also set for an interview with the Lions. He was the Dolphins General Manager from 2008-2013 and has been with the Saints since 2015.

Peters is in his fourth season with the 49ers and he previously worked for the Broncos. He played at UCLA when Panthers head coach Matt Rhule was an assistant at the school in 2001.

  1. Jeff Ireland has failed as GM in Miami. It amazes me how these guys get recycled into new jobs.

  2. I hope Ireland stays in NO. While he failed in Miami, since he was hired by the Saints, their drafts have been much, much better. His hire has quietly been one of the main reasons why the Saints pulled out of that 7-9 three year stretch. Maybe Loomis should step aside or get kicked upstairs and let Ireland become the GM if the Panthers are serious about stealing him. But don’t let that guy go.

  3. I agree with pmars64. I was disappointed when the Saints hired Ireland after how his tenure in Miami went. But they’ve drafted very well since then. I hope they can find a way to keep him.

  4. Well Ireland is getting the credit but the one that runs things is the coach. Don’t get caught up in all that Ireland talk. My money is on Peters because every since he left the Broncos they have not done to well on picks and that is why Elway is stepping away from that. Peters has helped built the 49ERS and he knows Rhule. That is the one to watch.
