Gettleman hired as Panthers GM

Jan 09 2013 05:03 PM carp24000 Carolina Panthers
CHARLOTTE - The Carolina Panthers announced Wednesday that Dave Gettleman has been named the team's general manager.

Gettleman comes to Carolina from the New York Giants where he served as the Senior Pro Personnel Analyst last season after working as Director of Pro Personnel the previous 13 years.

"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."

I'm curious as to the length and size of his contract.
60 isn't really old for his position. I don't see why people are harping on that for. It just means that he's wiser and has more experience. From the very beginning I liked Gettleman the most. He has a proven track record of greatness that likely won't stop here. I also love that he's even recently been actively involved with scouting other teams. He seems like a true football guy who really understands the sport and how it works. I'm really excited for the hire.

Matt Harriss (yes, apparently that's how it's spelled) is listed on the Giants website as Director of Football Operations (no bio).

Amusingly enough, that's the same title Brandon Beane held before being named interim GM.


Hm?

Harriss is in his seventh season within the football operations department of the New York Giants. He joined the organization just prior to the 2006 NFL Draft. In his first year with the Giants, Harriss assisted former general manager Ernie Accorsi in his final season with the team. He has since worked with assistant general manager Kevin Abrams on all aspects of the salary cap, CBA compliance and player contract negotiations. Prior to joining the Giants, Harriss spent five seasons in the NFL League Office. He began as an intern in the Football Operations department in September 2001, and by December he became a player personnel analyst for the Management Council. His responsibilities included salary cap and free agency management, annual NFL draft eligibility, as well as being versed on all personnel rules in order to assist the 32 NFL teams. During his last three seasons in the league office, Harriss also worked with the officiating department as an instant replay booth communicator during games. Harriss graduated from Lafayette College in 2001 with a degree in history. A native of Bronxville, N.Y., he now resides in Manhattan.

Garofolo also says there's a guy named Matt Harris who works in the Giants FO that Gettleman might bring along as a possible "cap guy".

Edit: CPF96 beat me to it :lol:


Do you have a link good sir?

Hm?

Went to the Giants "Front Office" page. His name is listed there but it doesn't have a link. His bio is apparently still on the site but the link from that page is disabled for some reason.

Guessing you direct searched. Probably what I should have done :lol:

I didn't, but UNCR did (look above).

Ha yep, the power of Google. Seeing as he assisted Accorsi and handles all of the salary cap/CBA compliance stuff, I could definitely see him following Gettleman here.
I don't mind older GMs with a lot of experience, as long as when it comes to coaching hires they understand that the NFL is evolving and isn't afraid to think outside the box a little bit.
Love it

Five years working with the League Management Council on salary cap matters before joining the Giants in 2006 where he's been working with Assistant GM Kevin Abrams in "all aspects of the salary cap, CBA compliance and player contract negotiations."

Sounds like it'd be a great idea to bring him along as a cap manager.

This is a really great hire. I'm happy for our organization. The guy was involved with the Bills, the Broncos and the Giants when they were winners. I'm sure he learned a lot and is ready to emulate some of the best that ever ran those teams
I'm so happy that JR has gone this route. Hopefully this is the dawn of a bright new day for Panthers' football and their fans!

Carolina Giants!!!!!!
The last time we hired a NYG guy, it turned out great. Lets do it all over again.
Gettleman is a great hire and will turn this bull$hit around quickly.

I can already see Kenny Phillips landing here and Hakeem Nicks real soon.
I like it. Wonder who the HC will in 2014?

He's already listed on the staff page as the General Manager.

I think that strictly depends on if Rivera makes the playoffs or not, he makes it I think he stays if he doesn't I say he's gone.

But with that said Bill Cowher did announce today that he would be interested in coaching again, and us with established talent in his home state I would think be pretty hard to not pass up if the Job were to become available
Hopefully he will get that Chargers stench outta here.
Wish I could see the expression on the new Cap Guy's face when he digs into the books and sees what Hurney has done.

probably looks something like the Bill Cowher face in your avatar
Gettleman quotes...

"I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the Panthers organization. It is similar to the Giants organization in which I have had the privilege of working the last 15 years and has a lot of pieces in place for success. I am excited about getting started."


"There are a lot of great things in place here. You've got great ownership, a great young quarterback, a solid young head coach and plenty of other things to go along with it. I know some of the people in the personnel department that I’m excited to work with. It’s a good nucleus to begin with."


"You take a look at the teams in the playoffs – you have to have a quarterback. If you don't have a quarterback, you don't have a chance," Gettleman said. "You look at the teams that have had to make changes over the last few years, by and large they probably don't have a quarterback. There's one here."

Nice, everyone else on there went back to what they were before Hurney was fired. lol Beane is still listed as well at his old Operations job.
