NEW YORK GIANTS INTERVIEW JOE JUDGE…
The New York Giants officially confirmed that they interviewed New England Patriots Special Teams Coordinator/Wide Receivers Coach Joe Judge on Monday. The Giants said Judge met with team President and Chief Executive Officer John Mara, General Manager Dave Gettleman, Vice President of Football Operations/Assistant General Manager Kevin Abrams, and “other staff.”
The 38-year old Judge has held mainly special teams titles with the Patriots since 2012, including special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach (2019), special teams coordinator (2015-2018), and special teams assistant (2012-2014). He is said to be a strong contender for the Mississippi State University head-coaching vacancy.
The Giants interviewed Dallas Cowboys Defensive Backs Coach/Defensive Passing Game Coordinator Kris Richard last Thursday, former Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy last Friday, and Kansas City Chiefs Offensive Coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Baltimore Ravens Defensive Coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale last Saturday.
However, McCarthy was hired as the new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys on Monday.
The Giants are still expected to interview Baylor University Head Coach Matt Rhule on Tuesday and New England Patriots Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach Josh McDaniels on Wednesday.
