After hiring Bob Quinn as their new General Manager last month, the Lions hired Matt Harriss away from the Giants to be their vice president of football administration.
That left the Giants with an opening in their front office in Harriss’ former role as their director of football operations. They filled it on Thursday by hiring Quinn’s predecessor in Detroit.
The Giants announced that Martin Mayhew will be their director of football operations/special projects. Mayhew was dismissed by the Lions last November after 15 years with the club and spoke with other teams about positions since the end of the regular season without landing a role.
According to the team, Mayhew will work with assistant G.M. Kevin Abrams on issues dealing with “the salary cap, CBA compliance and player contract negotiations.” He will also work on special projects as determined by General Manager Jerry Reese.
