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.

I said it in the other thread, never underestimate the power of "old man bonding" :lol:

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

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