    I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain they wouldn't have been able to interview anybody mid-season

    Yep, they knew all along.

    They're only spending all these man-hours and money in interviews and travel just to put on a facade for the public.

    Can you share your personal transcripts from your one-on-one Q and A with Dean where he told you this?

    I'd be interested to see them.

    Hell, everyone hated hat pick. Doesn't mean they need to be GM. ;)

    @TSlemmons: Does the interviewing of Tom Campbell tomorrow put off the signing of a GM to Thursday or Friday?” >No.

    He either 'knocked Ron Wolfs socks off' last week or he didn't. If he didn't then he shouldn't be advising Deano to hire him right?

    ie. the man to knock Ron's socks off has not been met yet......... step forward Mr Gamble.

    Status of coach, G.M. searches, one week later

    Posted by Mike Florio on January 7, 2013, 10:13 AM EST

    AP
    [Editor's note: With the hiring cycle seven days old and only two head-coaching jobs filled, we thought it would make sense to wipe the slate clean and provide a fresh, one-stop update as to all current vacancies.]

    Arizona Cardinals: Looking for both a coach and a G.M., the Cardinals have interviewed defensive coordinator Ray Horton and Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. They plan to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden. The Cardinals also sought permission to interview Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, but to date Haley has not accepted. Cardinals V.P. of player personnel Steve Keim is regarded as the leading candidate to be promoted to the position of G.M.

    Buffalo Bills: The Bills hired Syracuse coach Doug Marrone.

    Carolina Panthers: The Panthers announced coach Ron Rivera will return.

    Chicago Bears: G.M. Phil Emery continues to pursue a wide variety of candidates, most of which have offensive backgrounds. They include Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman, Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, Falcons special-teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, Cowboys special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis, Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements, and Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. (It eventually will be easier to list the offensive coordinators whom the Bears haven’t interviewed.)

    Cleveland Browns: With Chip Kelly out of the mix, the Browns have “rebooted” their search. Currently, the Browns are looking at Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, and Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman.

    Jacksonville Jaguars: Candidates for the vacant G.M. job include Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell, Cardinals V.P. of player personnel Steve Keim, 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, and Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross. There have been conflicting reports regarding whether coach Mike Mularkey will be retained; it’s believed that the next G.M. will make a final decision.

    Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs have hired coach Andy Reid. Packers director of operations John Dorsey and former Browns G.M. Tom Heckert are among the candidates to replace Scott Pioli as G.M.

    New York Jets: 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble is believed to be the leading candidate. Other candidates include Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross and Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell.

    Philadelphia Eagles: With Chip Kelly opting to stay at Oregon, the Eagles’ current candidates include Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, Falcons special-teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, and Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. The Eagles also are reportedly interested in Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

    San Diego Chargers: Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye and Colts vice president of football operations Tom Telesco are considered to be the top candidates for the G.M. job. Coaching candidates include Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, but that process won’t get rolling until the Chargers have a new G.M.

    Reports: Tom Gamble not sure thing for Jets G.M.
    Posted by Josh Alper on January 7, 2013, 10:05 AM EST
    On Sunday, there were reports that indicated 49ers exec Tom Gamble was poised to become the next general manager of the Jets.
    That may come to pass, but multiple reports from New York put Gamble’s hiring as less of a sure thing than it seemed during the weekend. Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Jets “are said to be focused on another candidate.” Falcons director of player personnel David Caldwell interviewed for the job last week and the team also has interviews scheduled Monday with Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross and their own Assistant General Manager Scott Cohen.
    One of the reports that pointed toward Gamble joining the Jets centered on Gamble delaying an interview with the Chargers. Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that the interview was pushed back to Tuesday because of family reasons. Costello also reports that Gamble is still scheduled to meet with the Browns about their vacancy as well.
    This could all be part of the dance that still winds up with Gamble in New York, of course, as the Jets do need to interview Ross or another minority candidate to satisfy the Rooney Rule before they can make any hire. However things come to pass, some enterprising t-shirt makers have just the thing to welcome the next Jets general manager to town.

    I know some in here are cynics but even if the desire of the diehard fans and/or winning is not top priority for the organization does not mean they're actively seeking out to do the worst possible things to deter those goals just to be evil and spite them.

    If their bottom line is money (which it likely is) they're not going to purposely alienate fans by delaying the coaching search just to put on a facade if they're already dead set on Raye from the onset when hiring a coach late got us Norv last time. That kind of flies in the face of going through the motions of appeasing the would-be ticket buyers, does it not?

    It's foolish to presume that they're using all this time and money to interview other candidates for GM if they're not taking them seriously, as if it's just to put on a show while they've secretly already had Jimmy Raye's contract signed.

    They can interview people associated with teams in the playoffs, so I don't see why they couldn't interview people the last 2-3 weeks of the season

    C'mon Leo! You know that we all need the Chargers to knee jerk the hiring to keep our hate strong. This BS of taking time to find the best candidate is counter productive!

    Actually, Dean has a rep as being slow to the draw, hence all the good candidates will be gone.

    I'm just saying that that's been Dean's MO....... way late to fire Marty, and we had slim pickings for his replacement.

    That's why some fans get antsy when they see other teams quickly making moves, and the Chargers seemingly taking their time. Doesn't mean Dean is wrong for doing his due diligence, just explaining the anxiety among the fan base.

    Dean may surprise us all with his hire but I ain't buy for a second that this search didn't get started until AJ was gone.

    Well, we already know that Dean contacted Wolf over a month ago...... AJ was still employed then.

    Only in collecting checks. You can believe in anything you want but no one pays big money consultants to sit around and wait.

    I didn't say Wolf was sitting around waiting....... that was AJ's job.

    Until a GM is seated being it Raye, Gamble or Telescopio worrying about an HC is useless, hell, worrying about the Gm is too. Whoever it is, I just hope he has a better eye for talent than AJ did and that his HC will be able to work the players into the scheme that fits them best.
