Eagles executives Catherine Raiche, Brandon Brown, to interview for Vikings GM job
Last night, the Minnesota Vikings requested to interview Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Football Operations Catherine Raiche for their general manager position. Raiche was previously the Eagles’ Football Operations Coordinator since 2019 but was promoted this past offseason.
If she’s hired, Raiche would be the second female general manager in NFL history. The first was Susan Tose Spencer, who was actually with the Eagles from 1983 through 1985.
The Vikings are one of the league’s top openings, hosting a solidified young core alongside draft picks and cap space. Compared to the league’s other openings, it’s easily the best job on the market.
Yesterday, it was reported the Vikings wanted to interview former Eagles coach Doug Pederson for their head coach opening.
Raiche has only been in the NFL for three seasons and has skyrocketed up the ladder in Philadelphia. So far, roughly 12 candidates have been linked to the Vikings’ opening, and Raiche isn’t the only member from the Eagles in the running for the job.
According to Mike Garafolo, Eagles VP of Player Personnel, Brandon Brown is also expected to interview for the GM position. Brown was with the team’s scouting department from 2017 through 2020 and was promoted this past offseason. Brown is best known for being the scout who pushed them to draft Jordan Mailata in 2018.
As much as Howie Roseman is criticized, and rightfully so, he has built a tremendous staff that continues to find leading roles throughout the league. With other GM jobs opening, including the New York Giants and Chicago Bears, there’s a chance that Raiche or Brown could land elsewhere outside Minnesota.
