After three seasons away from the game, former New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese is back on the interview circuit seeking a second opportunity as a GM.
NFL.com is reporting that Reese, 57, interviewed recently for the vacant GM job with the Jacksonville Jaguars. They are also reporting that the Carolina Panthers, where Reese has a pre-existing relationship with coach Matt Rhule from Rhule’s time with the Giants, could be a landing spot for Reese.
The Giants fired Reese and coach Ben McAdoo near the end of the disastrous 2017 season. Reese has been out of the league since that time, and has reportedly not interviewed for any jobs since.
Reese was Giants’ GM from 2007-2017, winning two Super Bowl titles. The Giants, however, made the playoffs only once in his final six seasons. The Giants had a 91-85 record during Reese’s time as GM.
The fate of the man who replaced Reese with the Giants, Dave Gettleman, also hangs in the balance as the 2020 NFL season draws to a close.
