The Buffalo Bills became the first team to this offseason, according to the former assistant GM.
Ryan Poles, the director of the San Francisco 49ers' assistant vice president, and Adam Peters, the director of the Kansas City Chiefs, have interviewed nine players, but only Schoen, Peters, and Schoen have received two interviews.
Mara and Tisch made the decision less than 24 hours after the second meetings, naming Schoen as the replacement for a recently retired general manager.
Joe is pleased and honored to be appointed as our general manager, according to a team-issued press release. Throughout our search, Joe demonstrates his ability to communicate a progressive and comprehensive vision for our team.
Schoen had spent the past five seasons building the Buffaloes into a perennial contender with GM Brandon Beane.
The Bills selected quarterbacks like Josh Allen, CB TreDavious White, and offensive tackle Dion Dawkins in the annual draft. The Bills also signed free agents such as defensive backs Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde and watched them develop into standouts.
We will do everything it takes to support Joe's vision and strategic plan for success," Tisch said in the press release. We are very excited to begin this next chapter with Joe as our general manager.
Schoen spent nine seasons with the Miami Dolphins, starting off as a national scout before being promoted to director of player personnel.
Through his time with the Panthers, the Dolphins, and the Bills, Schoen has made his mark in the NFL.
The Giants will now compete in the NFC East in order to follow their lead in the game. Mara and Tisch are betting on Schoen to repeat his success in Buffalo in the Meadowlands.
We both felt like Joe was the right fit at the right time for us, Mara said of the two.
