The Minnesota Vikings have asked for an interview with Catherine Raiche as general manager

The Minnesota Vikings have asked for an interview with Philadelphia Eagles Vice President Catherine Raiche because of their vacancy as general manager.

According to NFL NetworkMike Garafolo, the Viking application is believed to be the first ever application for a woman general manager in NFL history.

Susan Tose Spencer, who also served as vice president and legal counsel for the Eagles, took over GM’s franchise responsibilities in 1983-85, but was supported by her father and former owner Leonard Tose.

Garafolo added that the Vikings also asked for an interview with Eagles HR Director Brandon Brown.

Mike Zimmer was fired on Monday after eight seasons as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings and finished with a balance of 72-56-1.

Raiche was promoted to her current role as Eagles Football Operations Representative in May 2021. This is the same position previously held by current Cleveland Browns CEO Andrew Berry in Philadelphia.

Raiche’s rise in the NFL was rapid, following previous stunts in the Canadian Football League and the XFL. Originally from Montreal, Raiche served as the football administration coordinator for the Montreal Alouettes from 2015 to 2017, before becoming an assistant to the GM team in 2017.

Raiche spent 2018 with the Toronto Argonauts as their football administration director. After that, she was briefly the director of football operations for the Tampa Bay Vipers at the XFL, before joining the Eagles in 2019, initially as a football operations / player coordinator.
