Report: Tom Quinn to remain Giants special teams coach


After Kevin Gilbride retired from his job as Giants offensive coordinator, reports surfaced that the team might also be planning to part ways with quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan and special teams coach Tom Quinn.

It looks like the Giants have decided that Quinn has earned another year on the job. Jordan Raanan of reports that Quinn will return for the 2014 season, which will be his ninth year as a member of Tom Coughlin’s staff.

Quinn’s job security was perceived to be waning after the Giants gave up three punt return touchdowns during the 2013 season without generating enough big plays of their own in the return game to balance out those errors.

If Quinn returns, it looks like Gilbride will be the only coordinator leaving after a 7-9 season. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell interviewed for the head coaching job in Washington, but Jay Gruden’s hiring means that he won’t be jumping to the Giants’ division rivals.

    Running through the grass in his outfit with the matching shorts, shirt, and beanie cap, pretending his arms were airplane wings, and whirring, Tom felt Special!

    I think the ST problems may have had more to do with personnel than the coach and that’s why there was no change.

    That’s a joke. This guy should have been gone for a while now.

    So I guess I was right about the serious blackmail this guy must have on Coughlin or the Maras. How bad does the special teams have to get for this buffoon to be canned!! I mean, let’s go another 5 years with having one of the worst special teams in the league?!

    If they don’t get rid of him after last year, they never will. How much more evidence do you need to make a decision?
