Tuna swims into GM picture

 

Report: Giants turned him away

 

BY RALPH VACCHIANO

DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

 

Could the Giants' general manager search end with a Tuna surprise?

 

 

 

The stage was set for that longshot scenario yesterday when Scott Pioli turned down a chance to be the next GM of the Giants, and hours later a report surfaced that Bill Parcells was interested in the job. Parcells, of course, is still the coach of the Cowboys, but he has not decided whether he wants to coach again next year.

 

 

 

The juicy possibility of Parcells finishing off his career in the front office of the organization where his head coaching career began was first reported last night on NFL.com. But according to another report, Parcells had already expressed his interests to the Giants but been rebuffed. A source told the Daily News Parcells' name had been discussed by the Giants' owners, but said his return is not likely to happen.

 

 

 

Pioli, who is Parcells' son-in-law, was a possibility for the job, though, before he snubbed the Giants yesterday for "personal reasons." The Giants had received permission from the Patriots to speak to their 41-year-old VP of player personnel earlier in the day.

 

 

 

With Pioli out of the mix, that appeared to leave the Giants' director of player personnel Jerry Reese as the front-runner to replace the retiring Ernie Accorsi. Several sources have said ownership has always leaned toward hiring an in-house candidate, though one source said the Giants will not hire a GM without interviewing more outside candidates.

 

 

 

So far the Giants have interviewed four in-house candidates: Reese, VP of player evaluation Chris Mara, assistant GM Kevin Abrams and director of pro personnel Dave Gettleman, along with former Texans GM Charlie Casserly. Reese is also a candidate for the Tennessee Titans' GM job, though the Titans have not asked permission to speak to him yet.

 

 

 

The 65-year-old Parcells has one year left on his contract with the Cowboys, which means he wouldn't be able to coach the Giants unless they offered the Cowboys compensation - and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones likely wouldn't allow that to happen anyway. But the Tuna would be allowed to leave to take a GM job in another organization.

 

According to his Dallas contract, he must make a decision by Feb. 1.

You want to give Dallas Draft Picks for the Tuna to become your GM?

 

Go you.

They wouldn't need to compensate the Cowboys if they were hiring him exclusively as GM. That's only the case if they were looking to hire him as coach.

No need to embarrass Fishfan when he?s trying to make a sarcastic comment! :shifty

 

My problem is that he was the GM with the NYJ and didn?t make many good moves. Just look at his 1997 through 1999 drafts:

 

1997 Draft

1 (8, 8) - James Farrior, Virginia

2 (1, 31) - Rick Terry, North Carolina

3 (28, 88) - Dedric Ward, Northern Iowa

4 (6, 102) - Terry Day, Mississippi State

 

1998 Draft

2 (26, 56) - Dorian Boose, Washington State

3 (6, 67) - Scott Frost, Nebraska

3 (26, 87) - Kevin Williams, Oklahoma State

4 (19, 111) - Jason Fabini, Cincinnati

 

1999 Draft

2 (26, 57) - Randy Thomas, Mississippi State

3 (29, 90) - David Loverne, San Jose State

4 (28, 123) - Jason Wiltz, Nebraska

5 (29, 162) - Jermaine Jones, Northwest Louisiana

 

They lost the 1st round pick in 1998 to settle the dispute with NE. Also, anyone remember the fight he had in NE with Bob Kraft because he wanted Reagan Upshaw and not Terry Glenn? How has that worked out?

Wouldnt it be a lateral move? Parcells acts at the Cowboys GM pretty much along with Jerry Jones. I am under the preception that he held the title along with Coach?

 

Still I dont see it happening even though the giants do need to get rid of their coach and find a new GM to take over there since Scott of NE said no thank you.

 

 

They just said on 790 the ticket they would need to give up compensation.

790 is wrong. Back when Parcells left NE in 1997, the NYJ tried to get around this by calling him a "consultant." Because of the transparency of this action, when NE complained, the NFL decided to resolve the dispute by giving NE the NYJ #1 pick in the 98 draft. If he had become the NJY GM instead, there would have been no compensation.

I would be surprised to see them drop Coughlin with only 1 year left on his contract unless he wants out too. The Giants are a very loyal organization. Crap - look how long they held onto Ray Handley!

 

As far as GM goes, they will probably go with someone like Chris Mara. It doesn't hurt to be part of NFL royalty...

As expected:

Coughlin Back Next Year as Giants Coach

 

It will be interesting. Like I said, at least the Giansts organization is loyal...

That and the recently deceased owner wanted him for Head Coach too. So it would be hard for the sons to fire him already.

 

Either way next year Belichek and Cowher and perhaps Carroll and others to lure to there. It should be interesting to see what happens with the Gmen. Not my team but I do have somewhat of a soft spot for them since I hate the Eagles, Cowboys and Jets.
