A New Start! (the Reboot) The Front Office, Ownership, & Coaching Staff Thread

I’m hoping we’re hiring based on their qualities and ability to do their job and not mainly for that reason.  

 

Not me. I figure we're doomed to lose forever while Snyder is owner, so might as well lose with guys who look like me!

Mayhew had a longer track record in front offices and also had earned a reputation for knowing how to work with his head coaches. In Washington, Rivera has the power so the general manager will report to him. He and Mayhew share the same agent, but Mayhew also brings a wealth of experience. He served as Detroit's general manager from 2008 to '15 -- after eight years in the Lions' front office. Rivera has said he wanted someone who also could handle the administrative duties of the position.

Washington also is expected to hire former Carolina general manager Marty Hurney, though his role was not yet specified, according to a source. Those details were still being worked out Thursday night. ESPN had previously reported that Hurney was expected to become Washington's GM after he met Monday with Rivera, the main power broker on the football side. Hurney was part of the group that hired Rivera in Carolina; he was fired in 2012 but returned in '17 for Rivera's final three seasons. Hurney covered the Washington franchise for the Washington Times in the late 1980s before joining the organization's public relations group.

Mayhew was named Detroit's GM late in 2008 after the Lions finished that season 0-16. Detroit was 8-24 in his first two seasons. The Lions made the postseason in 2011 and '14, the only two years in which they had a winning record during his tenure. Overall, Detroit went 41-63 in his seven-plus seasons.

 

Mayhew hired Jim Caldwell in 2014 to replace the first coach he had signed, Jim Schwartz. Detroit fired Mayhew midway through the 2015 season. But his hiring of Caldwell paid off: Detroit finished with three winning seasons in Caldwell's four years with two playoff appearances. It was the first time Detroit had posted consecutive winning seasons since 1994-95.

One person who coached under Mayhew called him "smart, analytical, level-headed" and someone who stayed calm. He was able to have disagreements without it becoming divisive. He also said Mayhew sometimes lacked a gut feel for players, but felt that issue could be lessened if someone else on his staff offered that quality.

Mayhew was the New York Giants' director of football operations in 2016 before joining San Francisco's front office a year later. He spent two years as a senior executive and the past two as the vice president of player personnel.

Mayhew played four years as a defensive back in Washington, winning a Super Bowl in the 1991 season. His time in Washington was sandwiched between one season in Buffalo and four in Tampa Bay.

I just read that the 49ers get two 3rd round compensatory picks this year for losing Mayhew and Saleh.

Damn that's quite the compensation for losing a coach and someone in their front office. 

Guess they don't have to worry too much about that 3rd round pick they gave us.

Makes sense.  Brain drain is real.  Look at the Eagles offense after their OC, Frank Reich left.  Or our offense after Sean McVay left.

I’m gonna assume this is sarcasm.  Because taking this serious doesn’t seem like an option.

I agree, that does seem backwards.

 

The idea was born because there was some blowback within league circles for outright rewarding minority hires, and a lot of it came from minorities themselves.  This system was introduced as a way to reward teams that actually develop minority candidates.  Its less of a direct payment and more of an incentive to further the overall mission.

 

Personally, I like it.

So what's Hurney's title? Vice President of 1st Round Picks?

 

I've always wanted someone to have the title "VP of Common Sense".  So someone can be like, "Hold up...we need to rethink this, are we seriously going to draft Tebow, in Round 1?  Or the 28 year old Brandon Weeden in Round 1?  Or the 27 year old firefighter in Round 1?"  Maybe, just maybe...we could've avoided setting the Safety market by giving Landon Collins an absurd amount of money, or Haynesworth who only played hard in contract years.

Yeah Russell nailed this one too, he's been talking up the two personnel guys for days, I posted some of that.   Making me wonder if his 2nd prediction happens which is some story is about to pop nothing to do with the GM hire -- if so hoping its something about Dan being in trouble.

Snyder needs to change the team name to Washington Diversity and get out on the podium like Suge Knight at The ‘95 Source Awards!  “To all you Head Coach & coordinator candidates, all upper management hopefuls wanna come work for an Owner that don’t give a **** about your race?  Don’t care bout that ****, come to Washington! 🤣suge knight all in the video GIF

Got the feeling that bad news will soon drop. Seems to be the trend during this last year. Do a couple good things, then the bad news follows. Wonder if something is brewing on the financial stuff going on.

The would actually constitute good news.  The worse, the better.

This year has been great, by  "seems to be the trend during this last year" you mean Snyder is forced to do something good for the franchise because of impending bad news for him(good news for us fans) about his sleazy illegal behavior coming to light.  In one fell swoop we both get closer to being a better franchise and finally getting rid of the worst owner in sports.

His draft picks as GM of the Lions and record with them as GM during that time was horrid!
