The Giants lost their offensive coordinator when Kevin Gilbride retired last week, a move that some thought would be coming after owner John Mara said the offense was broken whether or not Gilbride willingly left his position.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, there’s a good chance that won’t be the end of the changes on the Giants coaching staff. Special teams coordinator Tom Quinn and quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan are in jeopardy of losing their jobs and their fate could be decided on Monday.
Nether move would qualify as a big surprise. The Giants gave up three punt returns for touchdowns this season and the units have frequently fallen short since Quinn took over in 2007, with DeSean Jackson’s dagger in the heart punt return touchdown in 2010 remaining in the top spot of the lowlight reel. With Gilbride gone and Eli Manning coming off a 27-interception season, Ryan isn’t in the strongest position to stick around with a new offensive coordinator.
As for that new coordinator, Vacchiano reports that a source inside the Giants organization warned against assuming former Bucs offensive coordinator and one-time Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan is the favorite for the position. There’s no word on who else might be under consideration for the position.
