1, provided the GM has the choice and is on board with retaining Rivera

#2. Take a week at most to conduct interviews, make a decision, agree in principle, and let the new GM start working on getting us a coach. They can go ahead and do any interviews with people from teams not in the playoffs (aka the Giants likely...) and if Ross or the other guy from the Giants really are the frontrunners it could streamline the process even more. Hopefully the top coaching candidates aren't snagged up in the first week. We could even hire a coach before we hire a GM. As someone in another thread pointed out, Harbaugh was hired 3 weeks before the 49ers hired their GM.

For those that think #1 is the good long-term option, I invite you to read this.

hopefully #3 is exiting the realm of possibilities.

Should I A: Go back to slangin' dope?
Or should I B: Maintain and try to cope?
Or should I C: Just get crazy and wild?
But no I chose D: Create the G-Child

I just realized that both Scott Fowler AND Joe Person want Rivera back. Option 2 is looking better and better...

i dont see the process dragging out. i don't think rivera gets canned monday, but i see the new GM coming in within a week, and he'll make his decision pretty rapidly.

unless the giants make the playoffs, of course. that complicates things.

Any GM worth having will have multiple opportunities. It will take more than a week for interviews and decisions I think. Unless thee have been some back room behind the scenes talks already (hopefully)

What if the best GM candidate is part of a playoff franchise? Wait a few weeks maybe a month?

that, of course, is where it gets complicated. and that's why it doesn't make sense to expect rivera to be gone first thing monday morning (unless secretly JR has been in contact with certain guys who've explicitly stated they don't want rivera to return.)

if the giants don't make the playoffs i'd be very surprised if we didn't interview and subsequently hire ross or gettleman within the week.

Can we get a 4th option? B/c I could stand to have a GM who has more cap experience than player experience then give a good coach a deal where they get partial player control but not autonomy.

Depending on who the coach we target is (if we fire Rivera) that might be the best option.

I'm starting to get this feeling that we are going to stay put. If any changes at all, they will be minor.

Good ole' complacent Carolina.
