According to a report by KING-5 TV, Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent is on the short list to replace departing Seattle Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke.
Largent does not confirm that he is indeed on the short list of candidates to fill the position, according to the report. However, when asked directly if he's interested in the position, Largent says: "That could be."
I've heard rumblings around VMAC about Largent as a potential candidate, but nothing concrete.
However, Largent would seem like a logical choice because he's a known commodity who would serve as good face for the franchise nationally.
He currently serves on the Seahawks board of directors. Since his retirement from the league in 1989, Largent was elected from Oklahoma to serve in the House of Representatives (1994-2002). He currently works as the president and CEO of CTIA, the international association for wireless telecommunications in Washington DC.
