Dave Gettleman has announced his retirement after four seasons with the New York Giants.

John Mara and Steve Tisch said a search for a new general manager will begin immediately.

"This will be a comprehensive search for our next general manager," Mara said in a statement. "We are looking for a person who demonstrates exceptional leadership and communication abilities, somebody who will oversee all aspects of our football operations, including player personnel, college scouting and coaching."

The Giants are requesting an interview with the Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Joe Schoen.

The Giants didn't address the status of Joe Judge when announcing Gettleman's departure.
