The Seattle Seahawks could be losing one member of their front office to a new opportunity in the very near future. The Carolina Panthers have offered Seahawks’ Vice President of Football Operations, Scott Fitterer, the general manager position and he is expected to accept.
Fitterer, a long-time member of Seattle’s staff, conducted Zoom interviews with Carolina this week. The Panthers are moving quickly to make things official.
“The #Panthers are expected to hire VP of Football Operations Scott Fitterer as their new GM, sources tell me and @TomPelissero,” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Thursday afternoon. “A late addition to their interview process, he made a quick impression on the Carolina search team.”
Fitterer had interviewed for general manager positions with other teams over the last few seasons but his virtual meeting with the Panthers was his only interview of this year. Carolina had interviewed 15 candidates for the open GM position before offering Fitterer the job.
