Frank Cignetti expected to be Giants quarterbacks coach


The Giants promoted Ben McAdoo from offensive coordinator to head coach and are set to move Mike Sullivan into McAdoo’s old job.

Those trips up the ladder left an opening at Sullivan’s former role as quarterbacks coach. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the team will hire Frank Cignetti to be Eli Manning’s position coach.

Cignetti was named the Rams’ offensive coordinator before the start of the 2015 season, but was fired in early December after the unit proved to be one of the worst in the league. They weren’t much better from 2012 to 2014 when Cignetti was the team’s quarterbacks coach either.

Before moving to the Rams, Cignetti was the offensive coordinator at Rutgers and Pitt. He went to college at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, which is also McAdoo’s alma mater and Cignetti’s father, who has the same name, was the head football coach at the school when McAdoo was a student.
