The San Francisco 49ers are set to interview Arizona Cardinals Vice President of Player Personnel Terry McDonough on Friday, and he got a solid endorsement Thursday evening. Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald offered this up on Twitter.
My guy Terry McDonough is interviewing for the GM job of our arch rivals @49ers. None the less he's truly deserving.— Larry Fitzgerald (@LarryFitzgerald) January 13, 2017
Word on this interview only showed up this week, but Cam Inman tweeted that he had heard the name mentioned a couple weeks ago. I was told after the fact that McDonough’s name was on the list last week, but since he was not in the playoffs, the team was not in a rush with it.
Former Cowboys personnel executive Gil Brandt tweeted out support for him, and Mike Nolan is a big fan as well. And so, now, a guy that has been gaining some buzz this week will get a chance to meet with the 49ers and talk it over. And maybe the 49ers end up stealing him away from Larry Fitzgerald!
