Arizona Cardinals to interview Redskins Morocco Brown for general manager position

Washington Redskins Director of Player Personnel Morocco Brown has emerged as a candidate for the Arizona Cardinals’ vacant general manager position, and will interview with the team, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

Brown has worked for Washington since 2008 and oversees advance scouting of the Redskins’ opponents in addition to evaluating college prospects and potential NFL free agent and trade targets. The news of Arizona’s interest in Brown was first reported by Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.

A Hampton native, Brown served as assistant director of pro personnel for the Chicago Bears from 2001 to 2008 before joining Washington’s front office in May of 2008.

The Cardinals are coming off of a 5-11 season and on Monday fired both coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves.

It wasn’t immediately clear how extensive a list of general manager candidates the Cardinals have. Several reports in the last two days have indicated that the Cardinals have strong interest in former Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid for their coaching vacancy.
