It seems like NY Giants GM Dave Gettleman has been busy this week behind the scenes.

Early Monday morning the team decided to part ways with head coach Pat Shurmur after just two years.

After Shurmur’s firing there were questions as to whether the team would retain GM Dave Gettleman. In a report for NFL Network this morning Kimberley Jones said that Gettleman was trying to get her and other “reporters” to do his “bidding” and that she refused to do so.

“Dave Gettleman in recent days and weeks has courted several reporters to do his bidding. They have done so. Candidly, I’m not among them, and I’m 100% comfortable with that. But I do believe the Gettleman factor will loom large when it comes to hiring a new coach

The team eventually announced that Gettleman was coming back for another season much to the chagrin of Giants fans.

Jones was praised for not kowtowing to Gettleman.
