New York Giants Director or College Scouting Marc Ross has been a hot name in the General Manager search across the NFL, with him lining up visits with the Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, San Diego Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars. However, it appears that the Panthers, who enlisted the help of former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi, are learning towards pilfering a different name from Big Blue.
Gettleman, who joined the Giants in 1998 as then-director Tim Rooney’s assistant, quickly climbed the ranks within the organization. In 1999 he was promoted to Pro Personnel Director where he remained until July of last year when he was promoted to Senior Pro Personnel Analyst.
In his 25+ years in the league, Gettleman has been associated with six Super Bowl teams (Buffalo Bills 1990-1991, Denver Broncos 1997 and the Giants in 2000, 2007 and 2011), including three that won the Lombardi Trophy. He has also been associated with 13 playoffs teams, meaning he's seen the postseason in more than 50% of his years in the league.
Ross, meanwhile, will continue to conduct his interviews as other teams search for new GM's. And despite rumors that he turned down the New York Jets because they insist on giving Rex Ryan one more year as head coach, Ross is still on schedule to meet with them.
