New York Giants Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, has already interviewed with both the Jacksonville Jaguars (Friday) and San Diego Chargers (Saturday) for their respective General Manager jobs, but his NFL tour is only just getting started. Ross will continue making the rounds on Monday as he returns to East Rutherford to interview with the New York Jets.

Previously thought to be the favorite of the Carolina Panthers, it looks as if they will go the way of Giants executive Dave Gettleman instead. And with the Jets already rumored to be preparing an offer for San Francisco 49ers Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble, Ross may just be a pawn to satisfy the league's Rooney Rule.

There were also previous reports that indicated Ross had turned down the Jets for an interview because they insisted on retaining Rex Ryan as head coach, but they have turned out to be fabricated and erroneous.

At the start of 2012, Ross also interviewed with the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears for their vacant GM positions, but remained with Big Blue.

    Hate to be selfish here, but I hope so.

    I wonder if black coaches and front office personnel will ever band together and rise up against this condescending stupidity. I know Tony Dungee (who looks sicker and sicker on television every year–is he a vegan or something?) is a big proponent of the Rooney Rule but I wonder if other blacks in the NFL really like it.

    Leave it to the people in the Northeast to go hire the few black coaches and executives in the league and win 3 of the last 6 Super Bowls.

    Yeah, terrible idea getting these rich white owners to expand their horizons and consider other candidates.

    So if they wanna use Ross as a pawn, that’s sad, but we’ll keep him here and keep working the rest of the league in talent evaluation. And Woody can continue to be the joke of his social circle when his team is a dumpster fire again next year.

      Yeah, it is. And it’s dumb trying to make it sound like just because black execs and coaches have won the last 3 out of 6 Super Bowls, there are no other blacks in these positions throughout the rest of the league. Dungy coached 2 teams and won a SB, (neither team in the Northeast); Ozzie Newsome won a SB as a GM 13 years ago; Lovie Smith went to a Super Bowl; Marvin Lewis, Ray Rhodes, they were all hired before the Rooney Rule was instituted.

      The percentage of black head coaches and execs is no greater now than it was prior to the rule.
