Michael Kay on John Mara having final say on the Giants HC

Basically fans shouldn't expect a GM to go rogue and have power to bring in who he wants without approval of the owners

Going by what Mara said

The new GM will lead the interviews looking for a new head coach..

Mara will of course have a say and of course have to approve the hire but according to Mara its the GM leading
he could be right, or not

I think Mara answered this anyway. Seems to me like Mara won't get int the way of anything reasonable. And I take that to mean he probably will sign off on most personnel that doesn't have some kind of major baggage.
That'll certainly be discussed and resolved

31 other NFL teams have the same policy.
No offense to the OP

or anyone else here but OF course he has final say. He is fucking paying the bills. You think the new GM will push a coach on him that he doesn't want? I doubt Mara has strict guidelines of this guy or that guy but if he does his due diligence and finds questionable stuff in the guys past or has reason to believe this won't work he has EVERRY right to say so.

Any other attempt at interpreting this as Mara is picking the coach is just not true.

BTW- almost everyone of us was on board with Judge because we all wanted to believe that BB had an affinity for the Gmen and was sending us a guy who would become BB or BP for this franchise.

+1000
This is typical Michael Kay  
nygiants16 : 1/12/2022 6:38 pm : link
he says something that can never be wrong..

Saying the GM is going rogue is so stupid, no GM can just hire who they want without ownwrs approval..

so he frames it like Mara is making the decision but then when it comes out that the GM picks the coach with mara giving final approval he will say he never said GM wasnt pi king the coach

This. One of those 'no shit' types of things. The real problem would be John ignoring his new GM's recommendation and hiring someone he wants instead.

+1. There's not a franchise in sports where the owner has no say at all in who the a HC is

Yup, Kay is abysmal. After being clowned by Francesca all those years you think he’d learn his lesson one day. Guy just throws shit at the wall.

was on with Mad Dog and he basically said he expects the GM to pick the head coach. The pick will be given to Mara by the GM and Mara will rubber stamp it

No business owner is going to hand over the future of the organization without input.
You can trust and validate.
They afford to get it wrong.
Remember George Young wanted to fire parcells and wellington over rode him.
The guy who makes player selection decisions  
GeofromNJ : 1/13/2022 7:47 am : link
is more important that the guys who coach them. There are a few great coaches who make a difference (Parcells, Belichick), but no coach will be successful if the roster is basically crap. And thanks to Gettleman (and whoever else made the disastrous decisions of the last four years), no coach can win with the current Giants roster. That said, it's okay with me if the Mara's have final say on the head coach. It's not okay with me if the GM is no better than Gettleman or if the Mara's are the decision makers in player selection (draft, free agent, or trade).
Name me one owner who would not want to

“sign off” on the public face, the HC, of a multi billion dollar franchise.

I believe Mara when he says that he basically is the rubber stamp for the GM and Coach and I would think he would do the same with the HC recommendation by the new GM.

Basically, Mara is saying as long as the HC candidate isn’t going to embarrass the organization, he will “sign off” on it

That's how I heard it to. For example if the new GM wanted Gruden, Mara would veto it..
