New York Giants head coach Joe Judge officially announced the most significant members of his coaching staff on Friday.
Jason Garrett will serve as the team’s offensive coordinator, Patrick Graham as assistant head coach and defensive coordinator and Thomas McGaughey as special teams coordinator.
“We’re setting out to develop a smart, tough and really sound football team and that’s going to start with the coordinators setting the tone in each room,” Judge said via Giants.com. “Each one has experience, each one has the ability to run multiples (schemes), put the pressure on the opponent, and each one is an excellent teacher.
“All these guys were priorities to add to our staff. You have a short list when you come into this and you make sure you go ahead and take your time and get those guys in with whatever it takes. The priority is to put the best teachers and the best people around your players so you can form a strong locker room and make them fundamentally sound and situational. And I think all three of these guys bring that to the team.”
Garrett of course comes to the Giants from the NFC East rivals Dallas Cowboys, where he was head coach for the past decade. Graham served as the Miami Dolphins’ defensive coordinator in 2019. McGaughey will be returning in the same position he’s held for the past two seasons.
