Tuna swims into GM picture

Report: Giants turned him away

Could the Giants' general manager search end with a Tuna surprise?

The stage was set for that longshot scenario yesterday when Scott Pioli turned down a chance to be the next GM of the Giants, and hours later a report surfaced that Bill Parcells was interested in the job. Parcells, of course, is still the coach of the Cowboys, but he has not decided whether he wants to coach again next year.

The juicy possibility of Parcells finishing off his career in the front office of the organization where his head coaching career began was first reported last night on NFL.com. But according to another report, Parcells had already expressed his interests to the Giants but been rebuffed. A source told the Daily News Parcells' name had been discussed by the Giants' owners, but said his return is not likely to happen.

Pioli, who is Parcells' son-in-law, was a possibility for the job, though, before he snubbed the Giants yesterday for "personal reasons." The Giants had received permission from the Patriots to speak to their 41-year-old VP of player personnel earlier in the day.

With Pioli out of the mix, that appeared to leave the Giants' director of player personnel Jerry Reese as the front-runner to replace the retiring Ernie Accorsi. Several sources have said ownership has always leaned toward hiring an in-house candidate, though one source said the Giants will not hire a GM without interviewing more outside candidates.

So far the Giants have interviewed four in-house candidates: Reese, VP of player evaluation Chris Mara, assistant GM Kevin Abrams and director of pro personnel Dave Gettleman, along with former Texans GM Charlie Casserly. Reese is also a candidate for the Tennessee Titans' GM job, though the Titans have not asked permission to speak to him yet.

The 65-year-old Parcells has one year left on his contract with the Cowboys, which means he wouldn't be able to coach the Giants unless they offered the Cowboys compensation - and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones likely wouldn't allow that to happen anyway. But the Tuna would be allowed to leave to take a GM job in another organization.

According to his Dallas contract, he must make a decision by Feb. 1.


You know what kinda stinks about that is we might have lost out on Pioli cause his father in law wanted the job. frown
