Patriots exec Nick Caserio turned down 49ers interview request

The Patriots director of player personnel declined an opportunity to run a franchise.

The San Francisco 49ers were interested in interviewing New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio with the opportunity to become general manager of one of the most storied franchises in league history.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Caserio declined the 49ers invitation.

Earlier, we argued that the Patriots should offer Caserio a big pay raise in line with other general managers of his stature to entice the executive to remain in New England. Alternatively, they could have promoted him to general manager and taken him off the market.

Instead, it appears that Caserio has voluntarily decided to remain in New England.

While offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels interviewed with the Rams, Jaguars, and 49ers on Saturday, and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia did the same with the Rams and Chargers, it seems like Caserio will prevent an all-out exodus of talent.
