The 49ers will reportedly interview Indianapolis Colts vice president of football operations Jimmy Raye III for their general manager position.
Raye, 48, is scheduled to interview next week, reports the Sacramento Bee. He concluded his fourth season with the Colts and his 22nd year in the NFL, including 17 with the San Diego Chargers. He spent five seasons as the Chargers’ director of player personnel.
His father, Jimmy Raye II, was a long-time NFL assistant coach who served as the 49ers’ offensive coordinator under Mike Singletary in 2009 until he was fired after three games in 2010.
Raye was honored with the Fritz Pollard Alliance “Salute to Excellence” Award the past two years back-to back years, recognizing minorities who display outstanding performance through the year on the field and in the front office of the National Football League.
