Andy Weidl is heading home to Pittsburgh, but it won’t be as the Steelers’ new general manager, and instead, he’ll be named the assistant GM according to Aditi Kinkhabwala.

A key fixture in Philadelphia with 24 years of NFL scouting experience, Weidl just completed his sixth overall season with the Eagles and his third as the team’s vice president of player personnel.

Weidl originally joined Philadelphia’s scouting department as the assistant director of player personnel (2016-17) under current Jets general manager Joe Douglas.

During the 2018 offseason, Weidl was promoted to director of player personnel.

Weidl’s exit will now mark the fourth departure for a key front office member following Brandon Brown, Ian Cunningham, Tom Donahoe, and Catherine Raîche out the door, with only the longtime scout Donahoe, not landing in a new situation.
