The Miami Dolphins interviewed the Steelers’ Omar Khan Friday for their general manager opening.
Khan, 36, joined the Steelers in 2001 as their chief contract negotiator and salary-cap coordinator, as well as other duties in the front office. His current title is director of football and business administration.
The Steelers granted the Dolphins permission to talk to Khan.
Khan was a finalist last year to become general manager of the New York Jets, and three years ago, president of the Seattle Seahawks.
Anticipating that he might leave for a promotion with another team, the Steelers last year hired Samir Suleiman to assist Khan in his duties with the title of football administration coordinator.
The Dolphins fired their general manager, Jeff Ireland, this week.
In other news, the Steelers announced they signed two more players to their offseason roster: wide receiver Jasper Collins, who played at Division III power Mount Union; and former Towson safety Jordan Dangerfield.
