The Detroit Lions GM search heads to the broadcast booth this week. According to several reports, the Lions will interview ESPN analyst Louis Riddick for the GM vacancy on Friday.

This will be Chris Spielman’s first interviewee since taking over as a special assistant for the team on Tuesday. Spielman is spearheading the newly expanded search committee.

Riddick currently works in the Monday Night Football broadcast booth as an analyst. He does have prior NFL front office experience. Riddick was the director of pro personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2010-2013 and also held the same title for Washington from 2005-2007. He also worked as a pro scout for both franchises.

Before Riddick heads to Detroit, the former NFL defensive back will first interview for the GM vacancy with the Houston Texans.
