Seven NFL teams this season feature new head coaches – and with them, new coaching staffs. So what happened to the staff that was in place last year? With so much coaching turnover around the league every year, many of them land with a new team.
Over the course of the summer, we’ll take a look at all seven teams that have new staffs. Today, we look at the New York Giants.
Of the 21 members of the 2017 Giantss staff, head coach Ben McAdoo is one of five coaches not working the sidelines in 2018. Another is someone who interviewed for the vacant head coaching job before Pat Shurmur was hired, former defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Of the remaining 16 coaches, here’s a breakdown:
• With a new NFL team: 8. The most high-profile among these is former Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, who takes over as quarterbacks coach in Denver, where he’ll be responsible for working with new Broncos starter Case Keenum. As for former Giants QB coach Frank Cignetti Jr., he’ll assume that same role with the Green Bay Packers – not exactly the most challenging job since his No. 1 QB is Aaron Rodgers.
• Stayed with Giants: 8. Running backs coach Craig Johnson returns in the same role, only now he’s got a shiny new toy at his disposal in first-round pick Saquon Barkley. Lunda Wells, who was the assistant offensive line coach last year, was promoted to tight ends coach.
Here’s the complete rundown of where the 2017 Giants coaches are now.
