Eagles Director Of Scouting Reject interview with Patriots

REPORT: In search of a vague “lead personnel role,” the New England Patriots are interviewing the director of scouting for the Philadelphia Eagles, hoping to make the first external front office hire since Bill Belichick.

With Eliot Wolf taking over as the new sheriff in town following 20 years of Bill Belichick serving as the team’s de facto general manager and chief executive decision-maker, the New England Patriots have concluded their first NFL draft.

Not exactly, though.
Although Wolf serves as the team’s de facto general manager—a title that is rapidly coming to be associated with the New England front office organizational structure—the Patriots intend to name a full-time general manager to take Belichick’s heavy workload over an ambiguous period of time that may extend from a few weeks to the end of the 2024 regular season to January 2025.

The New England Patriots Looking For A New Personnel Lead

Eliot Wolf is still very much in the race to become the New England Patriots’ new general manager, but in order to comply with the Rooney Rule, the team must interview a number of outside candidates.
Although they haven’t said that the “lead personnel” position would report to the team’s general manager, it appears likely that the position would operate alongside or above Wolf and be centered around having a significant influence over the decisions made by the six-time Super Bowl winners.

According to Adam Schefter, they appear to have interviewed their first applicant.

Who Is Brandon Hunt, The Eagles’ Director of Scouting?
After serving as the pro scouting coordinator for 12 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team’s opponent in the state, Brandon Hunt has been the director of scouting for the Eagles for the last two years.
brought in Quinyon Mitchell and Cooper DeJean, two of the defensive backs ranked in the top three by many.

He was also a major contributor to the Eagles’ defensive “Georgia Overhaul,” which included the selection of fellow Bulldogs Nolan Smith, Nakobe Dean, and Kelee Ringo in addition to the highly successful National Championship-winning tandem of Jalen Carter and Jordan Davis.

We are far from being able to predict if Hunt or anybody else will be named general manager at this stage, let alone whether they will begin before the season officially begins in September. All we know is that as the New England Patriots rebuild with new rookie quarterback Drake Maye, there will be significant adjustments.
