49ers Interview Scott Fitterer for GM

Take a look at each potential general manager/head coach who has met with the 49ers, in order of when they took the interview.

Seattle Seahawks co-director of player personnel Scott Fitterer is the latest candidate to interview for the San Francisco 49ers open general manager position.

The 49ers met with Fitterer on Monday following Seattle's loss against the Atlanta Falcons in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. The talented evaluator has 19 years of NFL personnel experience and has been with the Seahawks since 2001.

He was initially hired by Mike Holmgren as an area scout before being elevated to the assistant director of college scouting in 2005. Five years later, Seattle's current general manager retained Fitterer as the team's director of college scouting, a position he held from 2010-14. He was then promoted to his current role in 2015.

Fitterer played an integral part in Seattle's draft day selections of quarterback Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.

Fitterer's career began in 1998 with the New York Giants where he spent three seasons as a scout. A fun fact about San Francisco's latest candidate is that Fitterer played minor league baseball for three years before embarking on his journey in NFL personnel departments.
