During his 14 NFL seasons, Larry Izzo was one of the league’s best special teams players. Now he’s becoming a special teams coach.
Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger reports that Izzo will become the Giants’ coaching assistant special teams coach.
It appears that the Giants decided to hire Izzo shortly after Thomas McGaughey left to join LSU’s staff in March, but they’re waiting until the lockout ends to make the hiring official.
Izzo played for the Dolphins from 1996 to 2000, the Patriots from 2001 to 2008 and the Jets in 2009. He made three Pro Bowls as the AFC’s special teams representative.
