The Giants are shaking up their coaching staff in the middle of the season.

Giants head coach Joe Judge has fired offensive line coach Marc Colombo and hired Dave DeGuglielmo to replace him, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Colombo is in his first year with the Giants after spending the last four seasons coaching the offensive line in Dallas under Jason Garrett, who is now the Giants’ offensive coordinator. He had a 10-year playing career with the Bears, Cowboys and Dolphins.

DeGuglielmo previously worked with Judge in New England, and apparently Judge thinks he’s a better fit for what the Giants are trying to do. After an 0-5 start, the Giants are playing better football recently and are still in contention in the NFC East, and they hope to have a better offensive line the rest of the way.

  1. He was well thougth of in Dallas and JG brough him along. He is power game line coach and NE was more fineness blocking. I guess not a good fit, wonder how JG is feeling as he very loyal to he is staff. Maybe he an Judge are not on the same page.

  2. That came out of nowhere. I guess its a lot easier to be a good coach when you’ve got a few all-pros in your unit like Colombo did in Dallas (before they all started going down to injury).

  3. garrett jumpeded on judge’s back and started pulling his hair which is my colombus was able to get the best of him.
