New York Giants: Joe Judge’s Coaching Staff Is Officially Announced

New York Giants, Joe Judge

The New York Giants‘ new coaching staff has been officially announced this morning. After firing Pat Shurmur at the end of the 2019 season, the Giants hired new head coach Joe Judge. Judge, former New England Patriots special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach, has been building his coaching staff over the past several weeks. Today, Judge’s staff is complete and has been made official. Down Below is Joe Judge’s official coaching staff for the 2020 NFL season:

Offense:

Offensive Coordinator: Jason Garrett
Quarterbacks Coach: Jerry Schuplinski
Running Backs Coach: Burton Burns
Wide Receivers Coach: Tyke Tolbert
Offensive Line Coach: Marc Colombo
Assistant Offensive Line Coach: Ben Wilkerson
Tight Ends Coach: Freddie Kitchens
Senior Offensive Assistant: Derek Dooley
Offensive Assistant: Stephen Brown
Offensive Quality Control: Bobby Blick

Defense:

Defensive Coordinator/Assistant Head Coach: Patrick Graham
Defensive Line Coach: Sean Spencer
Outside Linebackers Coach/Senior Assistant: Bret Bielema
Inside Linebackers Coach: Kevin Sherrer
Defensive Backs Coach: Jerome Henderson
Assistant Defensive Backs Coach: Anthony Blevins
Defensive Assistant: Jody Wright
Defensive Quality Control: Mike Treier

Special Teams:

Special Teams Coordinator: Thomas McGaughey
Assistant Special Teams Coordinator: Tom Quinn

Joe Judge’s coaching staff replaced almost everyone on Pat Shurmur’s staff. The only members of Shurmur’s staff still with the Giants are wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert, special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey, and assistant special teams coordinator Tom Quinn.

Key hirings on Judge’s staff are at offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. The Giants will be implementing a system like the Dallas Cowboys’ offense from recent years under former Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett was also able to bring over his offensive line coach from Dallas, Marc Colombo.



One thing to note is the amount of assistants Judge has put on his staff. Each side of the ball has a quality control assistant and more than one positional unit on the team has an assistant coach (such as offensive line and defensive back).

The New York Giants’ new defensive coordinator, Patrick Graham, will also serve as the team’s assistant head coach. Graham spent 2019 as defensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins.

With a brand new coaching staff in place, there are reasons for real optimism heading into 2020. Judge made numerous big-name hirings and put together a staff with a multitude of head coach experience. Hopefully, this staff’s experience and impressive track record can get the Giants back on track next season.
