The San Francisco 49ers are patiently waiting for their Wild Card matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. While the action for this NFL playoffs clash goes down on Saturday afternoon, one member of the personnel staff is busy interviewing for another job.

According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, Ran Carthon is interviewing for the Tennessee Titans' open general manager role on Friday.

Carthon currently operates as the 49ers director of player personnel, a role he's held since 2017.

The Titans, who let go of Jon Robinson in December, have conducted a far-reaching search for their next GM.

Carthon was not the only member of the 49ers staff to get called about this role. A recent report revealed assistant GM Adam Peters turned down an opportunity to interview for the Titans role. He also declined a request to interview for the Arizona Cardinals' open GM role.

Members of the 49ers coaching staff and front office are considered hot commodities. After all, the franchise has won at least 10 games in three of the past four years, making the playoffs twice in the span.

The 49ers head into Wild Card Weekend as 9.5-point home favorites, per NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
