The San Francisco 49ers, now deep in their hunt for a new general manager and head coach, will travel up to Seattle next week to visit with a trio of candidates from the Seahawks.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY, the 49ers will visit with Seahawks co-directors of personnel Trent Kirchner and Scott Fitterer and assistant head coach and offensive coordinator Tom Cable.


Cable has been in his current position with Seattle since 2011. Prior to that, he was the head coach of the Oakland Raiders from 2008 until 2010.

The duo of Kirchner and Fitterer were promoted to their current positions with Seattle in June of 2015. They have been responsible for directing both the college scouting department and pro personnel department.

Fitterer served as the Seahawks' director of college scouting from 2011 until 2014. Kirchner was the director of pro personnel in 2013 and 2014. He oversaw NFL free agency, the scouting of Seattle's upcoming opponents, evaluation of NFL practice squads, and assessment of other players around the NFL and elsewhere.
