It’s that time of year in which the Chiefs could lose some personnel staff to elevated opportunities.

The conclusion of any NFL regular season creates job opportunities, and that is once again the case as this offseason begins for many teams around the league.

According to reports, the Kansas City Chiefs have already received two interview requests for open personnel opportunities.

Carolina Panthers request vice president of football operations Brandt Tilis

This would mark the second occasion the Panthers have requested Tilis, who also interviewed for the position in 2021. We covered Tilis in the announcement of the Chiefs’ 2022 personnel changes:

As Patrick Mahomes signed his monumental new contract in July of 2020, Veach credited Tilis with being the first to realize the quarterback was going to get a “baseball” contract, allowing the team to begin working away and planning years in advance. Tilis began his Chiefs career as a salary cap and contract analyst back in 2010 and was the team’s director of football administration from 2017 to 2020. He was named to The Athletic’s “40 Under 40” list in 2022.

Washington Commanders request assistant general manager Mike Borgonzi

Borgonzi has been a general manager candidate for a while now.

Once referred to as the Chiefs’ “secret weapon” by NFL Network analyst and AP lobbyist Peter Schrager, Borgonzi was promoted to assistant general manager in 2021 after spending three years as the director of football operations. He began his Chiefs career in 2009 as a college scouting administrator and has risen his way up through the ranks over the last 13 years in Kansas City. Borgonzi was named a general manager candidate to watch by CBS Sports back in 2020.

If Borgonzi were to depart the Chiefs, it’s likely Mike Bradway would be the next man up at No. 2.
