Cardinals' Steve Keim will interview for Chargers GM position

Nick Doan

Steve Keim has spent the past 14 years climbing up the ranks of the Arizona Cardinals organization.

Steve Keim, the Arizona Cardinals' vice president of player personnel, is scheduled to interview this week for the San Diego Chargers' general manager job, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Chargers fired former GM A.J. Smith and head coach Norv Turner on black Monday, ending two tenures that many felt should have ended much sooner than they did.

Keim has been with the Cardinals organization since May 1999, when he started as a regional scout, and has served in his current role of VP of player personnel since May 2008. His track record in the NFL Draft is quite attractive to teams looking to build through the draft instead of through free agency, and the Chargers would fit that bill. Larry Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson, Darnell Dockett, Adrian Wilson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie were all selections by the Cardinals in recent years.

The Chargers finished 7-9 this season and missed the playoffs, despite what many viewed as a talented roster.
