Giants’ Dave Gettleman announces retirement

Dave Gettleman has officially retired.

“It was a privilege to serve as the general manager of the New York Giants the last four years and to have spent so many years of my career with this franchise,” the former Giants general manager said in a statement on Monday. “We obviously have not had the on-the-field success I expected, and that is disappointing. However, I have many fond memories here, including two Super Bowl victories, and I wish the team and organization only the best moving forward.

“There are many good people here who pour their souls into this organization. I am proud to have worked alongside them.”

Gettleman has been with the Giants organization off an on since joining as pro personnel director Tim Rooney’s assistant in 1998. His tenure as GM, however, lasted four seasons.

Team co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said they planned to start the search for their GM “immediately.”

“We are looking for a person who demonstrates exceptional leadership and communication abilities, somebody who will oversee all aspects of our football operations, including player personnel, college scouting and coaching,” Mara said.

Gettleman’s Giants went 19-46 in his four years. They finished the 2021-22 season last in the NFC East after going 4-13.

Tisch added: “It is an understatement to say John and I are disappointed by the lack of success we have had on the field. We are united in our commitment to find a general manager who will provide the direction necessary for us to achieve the on-field performance and results we all expect.”
