Giant hires Joe Schoen as next general manager, as Bills assistant GM replaces retired Dave Gettleman

The Giants in New York‘search for a new general manager ended, like the group announced Friday that they hired Joe Schoen as the new general manager.

“We are delighted and proud to appoint Joe as our general manager,” Giants President John Mara said. “During our search, Joe impressed us with his ability to convey a progressive and inclusive vision to our team. His philosophy and collaborative approach to building build the team and coach in line with what we’re looking for in a general manager.”

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday night that there is a strong expectations that the Giants will offer their GM job on Friday, with the search for the team’s coach expected to increase rapidly after they do so. Schoen, the former assistant general manager of the Buffalo Bills, will now embark on that search.

“It is an honor to accept the position of general manager of the New York Giants,” Schoen said. “I want to thank John Mara and Steve Tisch and their families for this tremendous opportunity. And obviously I’m grateful to Brandon [Beane] and Bill for the experience I had in Buffalo.

“Now, the work begins. My immediate focus is on hiring a head coach, with whom I will be working shortly to create a collaborative environment for our football activities. We will create a wide network, it can be former head coaches – longtime head coaches but more importantly, someone with organizational leadership and motivational abilities and player development. In terms of personnel, we will begin to evaluate our squad and prepare for the free draft and company. Our goal is to build a squad that can compete, have depth and most importantly win football matches.”

With Schoen leading the search, that means ESPN report on Friday morning, the Bills strike coordinator Brian Daboll was a name of interest to the Giants. Next report indicated that Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores would also be contenders.

Daboll has been a top coaching contender in each of the last two seasons, with his ability to build a forward-thinking and explosive attack around midfielder Josh Allen a vantage point for him. Quinn has been one of the standout names of this recruitment cycle, with his dramatic change making the Dallas defense flop. Flores’ departure from the Dolphins was seen as a surprise, and he was also seen as a candidate for the top jobs in Chicago and Houston.

With Schoen’s announcement that the team will hit the net wide, many coaches will appear as candidates for the opening match. Prior to Buffalo, Schoen had previously worked for the Carolina Panthers, although the mode of application there at the time had been superseded, so no obvious connection was made.
