Default Omar Khan to interview for Seahawks GM

http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/01/10/stee...ahawks-gm-job/

Omar Khan, a well-respected front-office executive with the Steelers, will interview for the Seahawks’ general manager vacancy early this week, according to a league source, joining Marc Ross (Giants) and John Schneider (Packers) as finalists.

Khan, who has strong ties to the Rooney family in Pittsburgh and has become a key figure in that organization, also has been tabbed by former Steelers coach Bill Cowher as someone he would want to lead his personnel department whenever he returns to the sideline (Cowher isn’t interested in any vacancies at this time, according to sources). Khan has the title of Business and Football Administration Coordinator and handles the salary cap and negotiations for the Steelers.

As we have reported, the Seahawks’ pursuit of Pete Carroll as coach hasn’t impacted their search for a GM. According to league sources, the team has informed candidates that their title and authority will not be impacted by the hire of a new coach, and the GM position would include roster control.

Carroll has the Seattle job if he wants it, and the sides are still working out the final details of a deal.

Should a pact with Carroll somehow fall apart, Carolina’s John Fox likely would be the next coach pursued by Seattle. Fox has one year left on his deal with the Panthers, but he can get out of that contract under certain circumstances, according to sources.

shit. hes one of the finest negotiators and capologists in the game. notice how we always are right at the cap, and always get our rookies signed early, and our own free agents right at, or below, market value?

Steelers’ Khan will interview for Seahawks’ GM job

Khan's a great numbers guy, his would be a tough loss to the orginization. I hope they find a way to keep him in Pittsburgh.

He's the negotiator Psyycho. He's the guy who keeps the Steelers cap compliant.

this is just a few examples of how good omar kahn is -

timmons who was the 16th overall pick (and represented by the devil, drew rosenhaus) was the 2nd first rounder to sign a contract his rookie season in a day and age when most teams and agents rely on the rest of the players to sign, to set the market value for their drafted slots. in fact, steelers almost always are one of the 1st teams to have all of its draft selections signed.

big ben, polamalu, kiesel, harrison, miller, aaron smith, all signed extensions well below their market value.

steelers have remained under the cap and a champion contender every year kahn has held his position. "salary cap hell" simply isnt a part of his vocabulary.
