Report: Giants GM Dave Gettleman retires, HC Joe Judge to stay

The New York Giants will be searching for a new general manager this offseason, but it seems whomever they hire won't have to worry about finding a new coach.

New York general manager Dave Gettleman began to inform colleagues Monday morning that he plans to retire, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, and later his retirement official. Meanwhile, Anderson reported just minutes later that head coach Joe Judge "is staying."

Gettleman first joined the Giants organization as a scout in 1998 and quickly rose up the ranks before leaving to become the Panthers' general manager in 2013. During this first stint in New York, the Giants won two Super Bowls behind star quarterback Eli Manning.

Gettleman also made it to the Super Bowl in Carolina, although he experienced a different outcome as the Panthers lost to the Broncos. He was relieved of his duties in the summer of 2017, but by December he had rejoined the Giants, this time as general manager.

His second stint in New York began with him bringing in Pat Shurmur as head coach, a position he held for just two years before Judge was hired. Gettleman also traded star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and drafted quarterback Daniel Jones at the beginning of his tenure, two moves that have been criticized by some since. The Giants finished with a 19-46 record under Gettleman.

Judge currently holds a 10-23 record after two seasons. He was hired by the Giants after nearly a decade with the Patriots, serving as both the special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach in his final season in New England. The Giants ranked 31st in total offense in Judge's first two years and 12th and 21st in total defense in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
