The Giants’ new defensive coordinator is also the Giants’ old defensive coordinator.
Steve Spagnuolo, who was previously the Giants’ defensive coordinator from 2007 to 2008, is taking the job again, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
During Spagnuolo’s previous tenure as defensive coordinator, he was credited for helping to build the excellent pass rush that the Giants used on their way to winning Super Bowl XLII. He became the Rams’ head coach in 2009 and had an unsuccessful three years in St. Louis, and he’s been an assistant in Baltimore the last two years.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin fired defensive coordinator Perry Fewell after the season. Now Coughlin has a new coordinator he’s won with before.
