Giants reassign two assistants to wrap up changes on offensive staff


The Giants have spent the last few weeks remaking their offensive coaching staff and they put the finishing touches on the changes on Monday.

The team formally announced the addition of Danny Langsdorf as their new quarterbacks coach with last year’s quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan moving back to his former role as the team’s wide receivers coach. Ryan held that role in the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Kevin M. Gilbride remained on the team’s staff as wide receivers coach after his father retired as offensive coordinator, but will shift to coach tight ends next season. Longtime Giants tight ends coach Mike Pope was let go after the end of the season and has since been hired by the Cowboys. Running backs coach Jerald Ingram was also relieved of his duties and Craig Johnson has been hired to replace him.

Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty, assistant offensive line coach Lunda Wells and offensive assistant Ryan Roeder are the only Giants offensive assistants expected back in the same roles for the 2014 season.

  1. This is great. Sean Ryan did a very good job with receivers a few years ago. Obviously he is not to blame for all of Eli’s troubles this past year, which many attribute to a weak and injured o-line, unproven and injured running backs and some receivers who did not seem to compete for the ball. I am proud to root for the giants, a team that is not reactionary. It would have been easy to fire the QB coach to appease certain fans or to cover for poor management and planning by GM and scouts. They seem to recognize bright, young, talented assistant coaches all the way back toLombardi and Landry through Belichick, John Fox & Sean Payton. Who knows, maybe Sean Ryan is the next great OC or head coach.

  2. Still scratching my head about letting Pope go. The Tight End problem is on the Reese and not Pope. Pope turned Boss and Ballard into actual threats before concussions and knee injuries ended their careers, respectively. The serious flaws of Myers were well documented before they even signed him.

    This guy knows what he’s doing. The Giants should have kept him.

  3. It is generally agreed that the worst part of the Giants team last year was the play of the offensive line and special teams. So the only changes we don’t make on the offensive staff are the offensive line coaches and special teams coordinator. Someone please tell me how Tom Quinn has managed to keep his job? The special teams were atrocious!!
