It looks like Omar Khan will remain with the Steelers:
I'm glad that he is staying. He seems to be a fine job as a negotiator and as a numbers guy.Schneider lands Seahawks G.M. job

Last week, the two finalists for the G.M. job in Seattle reportedly were Floyd Reese and Omar Khan.
Apparently, "finalist" doesn't mean what it used to mean.
Len Pasquarelli of ESPN.com reports that the job has gone to Packers exec John Schneider.
Per the report, Reese actually was a finalist. We've separately heard that he wasn't, and that his apparent decision to leak his status to the media killed his shot at the job.
If we didn't know better, we'd think that the final exam for the gig included proving that the candidate has the ability to be discreet.
Or maybe Reese couldn't resist the fizzy lifting drink.
