Omar Khan (above right), longtime Business & Football Administration Coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers, will interview for the vacant Seattle GM job, according to Jason La Canfora of

Khan, who joined the Steelers in 2001, has served as their chief contract negotiator and capologist in that time, and quite well. Prior to joining the Steelers, Khan was an intern and then a full-time football operations employee of the New Orleans Saints.

Khan, whose name usually comes up in the conversation of a new Bill Cowher staff, has some competition for the Seattle job. Marc Ross of the Giants and John Schneider of the Packers will also interview for the position this week. The new Seattle GM will have control of the roster, whether the new coach is Pete Carroll of USC or John Fox of the Carolina Panthers.

Losing Khan would definitely be a blow to the Steelers, but it's hard to stop a guy from moving up the ladder, especially if you don't have a position available for him. And since Kevin Colbert is not going anywhere, this appears to be the only chance Khan has to climb said ladder anytime soon.
