The Giants landed James Bettcher as their defensive coordinator earlier this week and new head coach Pat Shurmur is continuing to fill out his defensive coaching staff.

Alex Marvez of Sporting News reports that the team is set to hire defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo and defensive line coach Gary Emanuel. They are also reportedly set to retain linebackers coach Bill McGovern.

Anarumo was fired by the Dolphins this month after serving as their defensive backs coach since 2012. He also had a brief stint as interim defensive coordinator after Kevin Coyle was fired during the 2015 season before moving back to his original duties.

Emanuel spent the last six seasons on Chuck Pagano’s staff with the Colts, but is moving on after Pagano was fired at the end of the regular season. McGovern joined the Giants in 2016 and had his first NFL coaching experience with the Eagles from 2013-2015.

  1. Shurmur is certainly filling his staff quickly. It’s almost as if he was spending time lining people up when his former team might have been better served if he was focusing more on what he was supposed to do for them. I’m not saying, I’m just saying…

    The routes he drew up certainly weren’t working like the routes the WR’s were running all season long. (could have been injury to Theilen and Diggs). That still doesn’t explain how the defense totally sh@t the bed.

  3. Vike fans always looking for excuses. It’s pretty simple, bring together the best players and the best coaches. That’s how you win championships. Spend a little more time on that and a little less time with your marketing staff work-shopping thunderclap chants. Maybe you’ll figure it out someday. Probably not.

    Right, because the marketing staff could have been working on their personnel and game planning.

  5. If there’s one person who knows a lot about getting the best players and best coaches together, it’s a Packer fan. You could see this year that the team is loaded with talent and all those coaches they fired are clearly among the best in the league.

    Well, it doesn’t happen every year, but I think 13 World Championships speak for themselves. How many does your team have again?
