The Denver Broncos have requested an interview with Saints scouting director Terry Fontenot for their GM vacancy, according to Mike Klis. Klis adds that the Broncos will also interview their own college scouting director Brian Stark for the GM job.
Here’s the updated list of candidates for the Broncos’ job:
- Vikings assistant GM/VP of player personnel George Paton (Requested)
- Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly (Interview Scheduled)
- Patriots’ assistant director of player personnel Dave Ziegler (Requested)
- Saints scouting director Terry Fontenot (Interview Scheduled)
- Broncos college scouting director Brian Stark (Interview Scheduled)
- Buccaneers director of player personnel John Spytek
- 49ers VP of player personnel Adam Peters
- Former Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff
The Jets, Jaguars, Falcons and Lions have all expressed interest in Fontenot this week, so he’s a pretty popular GM candidate this offseason.
Fontenot has spent 16 seasons with the Saints and worked his way up through their scouting department. He’s currently in his sixth season as director of pro scouting for the Saints.
