New York Giants’ Marc Ross to Interview for New York Jets, Carolina Panthers GM Jobs

Long before the regular season ended, there was widespread speculation that New York Giants Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, would draw the interest of several teams looking for a new General Manager. On the top of that list were the Carolina Panthers, who parted ways with Marty Hurney in late October. It is something current Giants GM Jerry Reese is very aware of, and something he addressed on Monday.

"Marc has done a terrific job for us," Reese said. "If he ends up going somewhere else, it will be a loss for us, but we’ll be happy for him if that’s the way it goes down."

It didn't take long for speculation to turn into reality as both the Panthers and New York Jets, who had fired GM Mike Tannenbaum on Black Monday, requested permission to speak with Ross about their respective GM positions.

Permission granted.

Ross will interview with both teams, and should be considered a favorite to land in Carolina, where former New York Giants General Manager Ernie Accorsi is acting as a consultant for their GM search.

At the end of last season, Ross interviewed with the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears for their vacant GM positions, but each team decided to head in a different direction.

But Ross isn't the only member of the Giants staff gaining interest around the league. Long-time executive Dave Gettleman will also interview for the Panthers GM job at the request of Ernie Accorsi, and his name is likely to pop up elsewhere as five General Managers were fired on Monday.

    This is how it goes. Not only in football, but in every successful organization. The Giants will promote from within, and soldier on as always.

    All that packing just to move down the hall.

    Good conversations on here yesterday.

    Re: Tuck- Do I think he “quit?” No. But do I think he’s not as “all in” as he used to be, for whatever reason you want to believe (injuries, personal stuff, family, hating Fewell, etc.)? Absolutely! He’s not going anywhere, though.

    Re: Ross and Gittleberg- It’ll be sad if they leave, but if they’re as ultra-competent and great as we think they are, then presumably they have assistants and the like that they’ve brought up through the ranks to replace them. It will be a loss, but let’s be honest–how many people here REALLY knew who these guys were before Benton posted these articles?

    Re: Fewell- God, I hate this guy and his **** read-and-react scheme. But, like Tuck, he’s not going anywhere, and that includes Buffalo.
