Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has tabbed New York Giants senior pro personnel analyst Dave Gettleman to be the team’s next general manager. “I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the Panthers organization,” Gettleman said in a statement released by the Panthers. “It is similar to the Giants organization in which I have had the privilege of working the last 15 years and has a lot of pieces in place for success. I am excited about getting started.” Gettleman, 61, has worked in an NFL scouting capacity since 1986. Originally hired by the Buffalo Bills, Gettleman spent six seasons in western New York before working as a regional scout for BLESTO scouting service for one season before spending four seasons as an area scout with the Denver Broncos. Gettleman was the Giants’ director of pro personnel for 13 seasons before spending the 2012 season as the team’s senior pro personnel analyst. The Giants playing in three Super Bowls between 2000 and 2011 and winning a pair of Lombardi Trophies during Gettleman’s tenure in New York were a factor in Richardson’s decision.
