Former Kansas City Chiefs VP of player personnel Bill Kuharich is a candidate to be the next Seahawks general manager after Tim Ruskell was let go, according to Eric Williams.
Kuharich was leg go when Scott Pioli took over and was a candidate for the vacant GM position in Seattle initially when Ruskell got the job.
He was with the Chiefs for eight seasons, and before that worked for 14 years in the scouting department for New Orleans, where he served as president and general manager of the Saints before taking the job with Kansas City. Kuharich comes from a football family. His father, the late Joe Kuharich, served as a college head coach at San Francisco (’48-51) and Notre Dame (’59-62).
When Scott Pioli decided to replace Kuharich, it didn’t have anything to do with his ability. Pioli simply wanted to have his own people around him. Kuharich is going to get another job in the league, it’s just a matter of what the best fit ends up being.
