The Tennessee Titans have reportedly hired the San Francisco 49ers Director of Player Personnel, Ran Carthon, as their new General Manager. 

According to an ESPN report, Carthon interviewed for the job last Friday. 

He has been with the 49ers for the last 7 seasons. He started out as the director of Pro Personnel prior to being promoted to Director of Player Personnel two years ago. 

The 49ers will receive compensatory third-round selections in the next two drafts as part of Rooney Rule incentives for teams to develop minority head coach and GM candidates.
