Armando Salguero is reporting on his blog that the Fins are currently in the process of finalizing the hiring of Jeff Ireland as the new GM.
It's not official yet, but it's close. [Update: It's official]
Some have questioned whether or not Parcells is practicing the Rooney Rule in pursuing Ireland -- the rule that states teams must interview minority candidates as well as whites, before making a decision. Huizenga has also been accused of not following the Rooney Rule in the past. But the rule is mainly for head coaching jobs than for front-office personnel jobs, so we'll see how that plays out.
Meanwhile, Ireland had this to say about becoming the new GM here:
"There was a fist pump there. I was excited."
Yup, he's white!
