The Minnesota Vikings have requested permission to interview Canadian-born Philadelphia Eagles CEO Catherine Reich for the vacant general manager position, according to multiple reports.
The 32-year-old Montreal-born girl has been promoted to vice president of football operations for the Eagles ahead of the 2021 season, making her the highest-ranking woman serving in the personnel department in the NFL. Raiche started with the Eagles as Football Operations Coordinator/Player in 2019.
Raiche broke into CFL football in 2015, working for the Montreal Alouettes as an intern after graduating from University of Sherbrooke Law School.
Reich rose to the position of Football Management Coordinator and Assistant GM with the LS before becoming Director of Football for the Toronto Argonauts in 2018 and 19.
NFL Network’s Tom Pellisero reported earlier Wednesday that the Vikings have at least three other candidates.
Vikings sacked general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer on Monday after the team missed the playoffs for the second year in a row.
If appointed, Reich would become the second general manager in NFL history after Susan Toze Spencer, who served in the position with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1983 to 1985.
