The Atlanta Falcons have interviewed Los Angeles Rams director of college scouting Brad Holmes for their general manager vacancy, according to the Falcons website. From the report:
Holmes, who once interned with the Atlanta Hawks, has spent his entire NFL career – one that spans more than 18 years – with the Rams organization. Holmes started as a public relations intern in 2003 and the following year he became a scouting assistant in 2004. Holmes worked his way up the ranks – as a national combine scout, area scout and national scout before becoming the director of college scouting in 2013.
In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Holmes told writer Eric Edholm that his goal is to be a general manager. “That’s an ultimate goal for sure. It takes time and it takes luck, too. You just try to make as much of both as you can with hard work and preparation along the way,” Holmes said.
Earlier, it was reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking at Rams scouting consultant Ray Farmer for their own GM vacancy. It’s an active week for LA’s front office.
