The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly scheduling general manager interviews with multiple candidates in the wake of John Dorsey's firing.
On Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported they are setting interviews with Seattle Seahawks co-director of player personnel Scott Fitterer and Tennessee Titans director of player personnel Ryan Cowden.
Schefter noted the Chiefs have not reached out to ESPN analyst Louis Riddick.
Riddick stands out because Ian Rapoport of NFL.com previously reported the Chiefs reached out to him to set up an interview. It would make sense considering the analyst served in the front office for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2010-13, but he put an end to any rumors himself:
Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk noted Cowden left his position as a Carolina Panthers scout "last year for a better job in Tennessee" while also pointing out Fitterer interviewed for general manager spots with the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers in the past.
Another potential candidate is Chiefs co-director of player personnel Brett Veach, who Rapoport called the "top in-house" name in the search.
The general manager search comes on the heels of Dorsey's surprise firing after the team went 43-21 over the last four years. It reached the playoffs three times in that span and appeared set to continue competing for postseason spots in the near future, but Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reported Dorsey was fired in part because of lackluster communication and management skills.
