Joe Schoen is the next General Manager of the New York Giants.

Schoen has officially been hired, the team announced.

Formerly the Bills’ assistant general manager, Schoen was the first candidate to be brought in for a second interview, which was a good indication that the Giants considered him their favorite candidate.

The 42-year-old Schoen got a job as a ticket office intern with the Panthers in 2000 after finishing a college football career at DePauw University, and he has had various jobs around the league ever since. He has spent the last five years with the Bills and has previously been in the Dolphins’ front office.

  1. They’re doing it the right way. Find your GM fast, get him on board, and move on with the HC hire with him taking the lead. I wish my Bears would understand that. I can see the rest of the GM hiring happening in quick succession now as the smart teams get the best candidates before others do.

  2. Does the Rooney Rule apply to GMs or to the Giants organization in general? Asking for a friend!

  3. If he’s learned under Brandon Beane while with the Bills this will be a good hire. I’m glad the Giants play in the NFC.

  4. Looks like most of experience was working for an unimpressive front office in Miami. Time will tell whether he was a good hire or not.

  5. Now Brian Dabol from Buffalo will follow… Buffalo is what Every franchise is trying for.. great building,smart drafting.. not spending $$$ in FA.. All in 5 years Bills have become the franchise to emulate..no SB yet..but will have one with Allen and proven EVERYONE WRONG!!and no cap hell!!!! For years!!!

  6. I’m sure all the “experts” will claim that Schoen won’t be successful. Of course, they have no idea and neither do I. I’m just hoping for the best as it’s been tough for many seasons. Looking forward to seeing who the new coach will be.

    Yeah because the Bills’ trophy case is overflowing ….

  8. I thought the Giants would’ve taken more time than this. I don’t think anyone really knows if this is the right guy or not.

  9. Now we will see Daboll follow, and Trubisky come in to complete with D Jones. Draft the two best lineman you can with those picks and giddyup.

  10. Getting someone from a proven winner right now is all we can ask for. Now let’s get the head coach signed. Giants will be back in the mix.

    Right. Bc everyone pulled from NE isn’t an epic fail… so apparently number of trophies don’t mean much in this job search.

  12. Could be the smartest guy in the league but it won’t matter if the Maras can’t keep from meddling.

  13. Hey Giants, would be open to the idea of hiring Pat Shurmur to clean your stadium toilets? He knows the layout and area of the stadium very well. Asking for…um… a friend.
