The Minnesota Vikings requested permission to interview Philadelphia Eagles vice president of football operations Catherine Raiche for their general manager job, multiple media outlets reported.
Per NFL Network, this is believed to be the request to interview a woman for the GM role in NFL history.
Susan Tose Spencer assumed general manager responsibilities for the Eagles from 1983-85. She was promoted by her father, former team owner Leonard Tose.
The Vikings are seeking a general manager after firing Rick Spielman along with head coach Mike Zimmer on Monday.
Raiche joined the Eagles in 2019 as a football operations/player personnel coordinator before being promoted to her current role in May. The Montreal native previously served as the coordinator of football administration and assistant general manager of the Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
The Vikings also plan to interview fellow Eagles executive Brandon Brown, the team’s director of player personnel.
