Saints deny Dolphins’ request to interview Ryan Pace

The Dolphins are casting a wide net in their effort to find a G.M. But not every candidate will make it into the boat for an interview.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that the Saints have denied a request by the Dolphins to interview New Orleans director of player personnel Ryan Pace.

A 12-year member of the Saints organization, Pace is completing the first season in his current job.

Confusion persists in some league circles regarding the rules that apply to a team’s ability to block a request to interview a front-office employee for the job of General Manager. As one league insider described the rule on Thursday, it’s “murky.”

For employees in the final year of their contracts, permission can’t be denied — but under certain circumstances a departure can be delayed. For employees not in the final year of their contracts, the current team can block an interview for a position that doesn’t entail “(1) the authority over all personnel decisions related to the signing of free agents, the selection of players in the College Draft, trades, terminations, and related decisions, and (2) the responsibility for coordinating other football activities with the Head Coach.”

Or, as we learned today in connection with Kansas City’s denial of permission to the Buccaneers for permission to interview Chiefs director of pro personnel Chris Ballard, the explanation could be that the candidate didn’t want to leave.

Re: Saints deny Dolphins’ request to interview Ryan Pace

I would say it's pretty odd that the Dolphins would even request permission to approach him while the playoffs are going on but,,

it's the Dolphins, they may have forgotten some teams keep playing in January.

Certainly not, but Tom may have other plans for him in years to come.

That's how a lot of companies do it. You might have a great employee at hand but you are still grooming his eventual replacement.
