Add another name to the Detroit Lions search for a new general manager. Brad Holmes will interview with the Lions for the GM vacancy, per multiple sources including NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Holmes is the Director of Collegiate Scouting for the Los Angeles Rams and has served in that capacity for the past eight seasons. The 41-year-old Holmes has worked his way up from public relations intern to his current position, spending his entire 18-year NFL career with the Rams.

He’s best known for being the person pounding the table for defensive tackle Aaron Donald in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Not everyone was enamored with the undersized Donald, but Holmes was proven right in insisting upon the Rams taking him at No. 13 overall.

Holmes has also unearthed some solid middle-round talents who have helped the Rams become a steady playoff team and reach one Super Bowl during his time serving under GM Les Snead. He is also expected to interview for the Atlanta Falcons vacant GM position.

Holmes played defensive tackle at North Carolina A&T before joining the Rams.
