Cardinals seek interviews with 2 49ers executives for GM job

The Arizona Cardinals have already begun the process of hiring a new general manager. Steve Keim, after taking a health-related leave of absence, stepped down from his job as general manager to focus on his health. Owner Michael Bidwill is looking at internal and external candidates.

They are looking to a division rival, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Per Schefter, the Cardinals have requested permission to interview two members of the 49ers’ front office — director of pro personnel Ran Carthon and assistant GM Adam Peters.

Carthon has been director of pro personnel for two years after five as director of player personnel. Per his bio on the 49ers’ team site, “Carthon is responsible for evaluating the top college prospects and assists in the construction of the pro free agency board and evaluations. He also works with the football administration staff with player market analysis and unrestricted free agency strategy.”

Peters has been John Lynch’s assistant GM for two season after four years of being the vice president of player personnel.

The Cardinals have interviewed internal candidates Adrian Wilson and Quentin Harris and also one other unnamed external candidate.
