Andy Weidl to undergo second interview for Steelers’ GM job
Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel is undergoing a second interview with the Pittsburgh Steelers for their General Manager job, according to Tom Pelissero.
Weidl first interviewed for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ general manager vacancy a few months ago. Last month, he was considered to be the front-runner for the job, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The Steelers’ former GM, Kevin Colbert, retired following the conclusion of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Weidl has been with the Eagles since 2016 and has quickly climbed the ladder during his tenure here. Howie Roseman has already lost several members of his front office this offseason. Ian Cunningham left to become the Chicago Bears Assistant GM, while Brandon Brown left for the same role with the New York Giants.
Weidl could join a growing tree of former Eagles’ assistants turned general manager, which includes Jets GM Joe Douglas and Browns GM Andrew Berry.
Along with Weidl, some of the other candidates the Steelers spoke with were Ryan Cowden, John Spytek, and former GM Doug Whaley.
