New York Giants hire Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen as their next general manager

The New York Giants have found their next guy to run the team.

After weeks of interviews, the Giants are hiring Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Joe Schoen as their next general manager, the team announced today.

Schoen is replacing Dave Gettleman, who was able to retire from the NFL and depart from the Giants after a terrible stint, going 19-46 in four years.

Schoen had been with the Bills since 2017 as the assistant general manager under long-time friend and colleague Brandon Beane. Before then, he spent nine seasons with the Miami Dolphins in several roles.

Schoen has the task of rebuilding a Giants roster that hasn’t seen the playoff since 2016 and has been 22-60 since then.
