Giants request GM interviews with Titans’ Monti Ossenfort, Ryan Cowden
The New York Giants have put in a request to interview Tennessee Titans director of player personnel, Monti Ossenfort, and vice president of player personnel, Ryan Cowden, for their general manager opening, according to multiple reports.
The Giants began their search for a new general manager on Monday after former general manager Dave Gettleman announced his retirement.
Cowden originally joined the franchise as director of player personnel six years ago and has held his current position with the Titans since 2018.
Ossenfort, who was hired by the Titans in 2020, had been with the New England Patriots since 2003, working his way up from being a personal assistant to director of college scouting.
Ossenfort does have a connection with embattled Giants head coach Joe Judge, who was a special teams assistant and then special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach during his tenure with the Pats from 2012 through 2019.
Both Ossenfort and Cowden drew interviews for general manager vacancies in 2021, with Ossenfort getting two interviews with the Carolina Panthers, and Cowden getting one interview with the Washington Football Team.
Whether it’s Ossenfort, Cowden, or someone else vying for the job, they will have their work cut out for them, as the Giants have been a mess for years now.
