- — Staff and Wire reports

HARRY HULMES III, a former Giants executive who spent more than 50 years in profession­al football, has died. He was 88.

The Giants said Monday that Hulmes, their onetime assistant general manager, had passed away on Sunday. No cause of death was given by the Giants.

“Harry was an instrument­al part of our success under George Young,” said John Mara, the Giants’ president and chief executive officer. “While he may have operated behind the scenes, he was an invaluable member of our front office and was George’s right hand man for many years. He was beloved by everyone at the Giants and around the NFL. It is s very sad day for all of us.”

Hulmes joined the Giants in 1984 as an assistant to then-general manager Young. He later became a special assistant to the general manager, but left that post in 1998, becoming a player personnel scout. He retired following the 2008 season.

Virtually all of his personnel experience was in the NFL, including 12 years with the Baltimore Colts and 13 with the New Orleans Saints. Hulmes also was chief operating officer of the Arizona Wranglers of the USFL. Hulmes is survived by his wife, Barbara Lockhart Hulmes, three children, six grandchild­ren and two great-grandchild­ren.
