Dawson would be an excellent hire. My friends who work in the NFL think he's a great choice. Do you think there's any chance we keep Beane?

Not as GM.

Back in his old job, maybe.

Well we can now close this one with Gettleman getting the Job officially.


Albert Breer@AlbertBreer
Gettleman got Accorsi's endorsement early > RT @Panthers: Dave Gettleman has been named the #Panthers general manager:http://pnth.rs/RGAM7Z



Joe Person@josephperson

Team not expected to formally introduce Gettleman until next week.


"I was very impressed with Dave's experience and think he will be a very good fit for our organization," Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson said. "He has an extensive background in personnel and comes from an organization in the New York Giants that I hold in high regard and played an instrumental role in their success."

Just goes to show how under wraps Richardson keeps this stuff. No one had any idea it'd be coming today.

Speculation from the radio guys (unknown what source) that Brandon Beane will not even be retained in his old job.

One last note of interest....

Per Giants beat writer Mike Garafolo, both Marc Ross and Dave Gettleman knew before coming here that Ron Rivera was expected to be retained. It did not affect their willingness to interview. Both wanted the job.

It's really interesting that they chose Gettleman over Ross. I think that Gettleman is the correct choice between the two but I'm really shocked that they turned down Marc Ross since he's so high profile at the moment. I honestly thought it would be the other way around with Ross rejecting the Panthers and then them taking Gettleman as a consolation prize.

Bit of an addendum, but apparently Jim Popp was impressive in his interview as well

RUSSLANDE
Sources tell me that despite Panthers hiring of Dave Gettleman, Jim Popp had an excellent interview & impressed enough to make choice tough.
