Joe Schoen, 42, is the choice of Giants ownership, surviving the initial nine-man candidate pool and then rising above the other two finalists, Adam Peters of the 49ers and Ryan Poles of the Chiefs. The decision was made by co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch to hire Schoen. If he can infuse the Giants with what he helped inject into the Bills, it will be a move to be praised for years to come.
There is no time for victory laps. Schoen must immediately turn his attention to moving forward with his list of head coach options, as the Giants fired Joe Judge two years into a five-year contract. Schoen’s Bills face the Chiefs in Kansas City Sunday night in an AFC divisional playoff game but Schoen will immediately dive into the coaching search with the Giants.
Giants are planning to hire Bills’ asst GM Joe Schoen as their GM, per sources.
They still have to work out a contract, but Giants’ other GM finalists have been told that they’re out. If they work out the deal, Schoen is expected to be the Giants’ next GM.

The #Giants have identified #Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen as their next GM, per me and @MikeGarafolo. They will begin working on a deal. The right-hand man to Buffalo GM Brandon Beane is ready to run his own place. He’ll do it at NYG.
