Marc Ross Being Eyed for Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins General Manager Vacancies

New York Giants Vice President of Player Evaluation Marc Ross has been a general manager candidate for several teams in the past, but has yet to be given his first chance at running a team.

With two current vacancies open, the Ross is being eyed by both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins for their general manager vacancies, and have requested permission from the Giants to speak with Ross.

The Buccaneers fired Mark Dominik just after the end of the 2013 season after spending the last five seasons at the position; Dominik was fired along with the entire coaching staff under Greg Schiano which included Mike Sullivan, who is currently interviewing for the Giants vacant offensive coordinator job.

Ireland was fired after spending six seasons with the Dolphins, but many felt was a sitting duck at the position because he was appointed by Bill Parcells for the spot in 2008 when he ran the team but then resigned from his position. Despite firing Ireland, head coach Joe Philbin was retained after a rough season that dealt with the public issues between Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito

Last year, Ross interviewed with the New York Jets, Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers for their general manager jobs but did not get them; ironically enough, Ross' former colleague with the Giants Dave Gettleman, was hired by the Panthers last offseason.

As of now, the Buccaneers have been granted permissions to interview Ross, and it's likely the Dolphins will be granted permission as well.

    Given the state of the giants roster, hard pressed to see him get a serious look

    I see the Giants are going to interview Ben McAdoo, the Packer QB coach for the OC position . I don’t know anything about him but I like this approach. I think they should look at some of the good offenses in the league and interview their young assistants. I’d rather they bring in a young guy with fresh ideas than the next Gilbride. I’m not saying if they should hire McAdoo of not, just saying that I like the appraoch and they should have more interviews like this. Maybe bring in Joe Lombardi too?

    “So Mr. Ross … why don’t you tell us about some of your recent draft successes.”

    “Ummmm, hey … how about those Mets huh.”

      All that and remember one thing; (No hate toward Eli)

      Rodgers makes much of Green Bays offense legit. There are plenty of coordinators who would look good with Rodgers pulling the trigger.
      Same with Brady.

      We all know when Eli’s big brother is onboard, he is effectivelyt the offensive coordinator. The guy carring that title is just along for the ride.

      I say a new young guy or a proven solid older guy. Someone who understands the importance of a strong running attack, possesion time and field position. And of course all that to set up the bomb when required.
