EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (AP) – Dave Gettleman has retired as general manager of the New York Giants after a fourth consecutive season of double-digit losses.
The Giants announced that Gettleman, 70, retired on Monday, a day after New York (4-13) lost its 22-7 season final to Washington. It was the sixth loss in a row and it ended a dismal and injury-plagued second season under coach Joe Judge.
Gettleman would likely have been fired had he not resigned.
Judge’s future with the Giants is also in question after a late swoon marked by inane offensive performances. He plans to speak to team co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch this week about his return for a third season.
The Giants went 19-46 during Gettleman’s tenure and were rarely in playoff contention during that time.
This last season has been particularly disappointing. The Giants entered the year with higher expectations after a 6-10 campaign that saw them end the season with a 5-3 streak to finish second in weak NFC East, one game behind Washington (7- 9).
Anticipation grew during the offseason when New York recruited wide receiver Kenny Golladay, quick receiver Kadarius Toney in the first round and veteran Kyle Rudolph to help with the block.
Nothing went well.
