Pittsburgh Steelers May Lose Coordinator To The Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills have had a major opening in their front office for months. Now, it looks like the wheels are in motion to fill it.
Back in January, the New York Giants raided the Bills' front office when they hired Joe Schoen to be the team's new General Manager, replacing Dave Gettleman who 'retired' at the end of the 2021 season. Schoen had spent the previous four seasons here in Buffalo, working under Brandon Beane helping to build what is now one of the most respected rosters in the NFL.
Since Schoen Left Buffalo for East Rutherford, it has been fairly quiet in terms of news on who the team might be looking at to replace him...until now.
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Bills' GM Brandon Beane has conducted an interview with Pittsburgh Steelers' Pro Scouting Coordinator Brandon Hunt.
Hunt has been a hot name in front office searches this offseason. He has drawn interest from the Philadelphia Eagles for their vacant Assistant General Manager position, and also interviewed for the Las Vegas GM job before eventually losing out to Dave Ziegler.
Hunt has been with Pittsburgh since 2010. This is his second tenure with the Steelers.
The Bills' interview is the third outside the Steelers' organization this offseason for Hunt, and as noted by Rapoport above he is in the running for the Steelers' General Manager job, with many others considering him a front runner for the position.
So, the Bills may have their work cut out for them in trying to lure him to Western New York.
