The New York Giants have announced the firing of head coach Joe Judge. Team President John Mara said in a statement that the team will fire hire a new general manager, and that person will hire the next head coach. Said Mara: “Steve (Tisch) and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction. We met with Joe yesterday afternoon to discuss the state of the team. I met again with Joe this afternoon, and it was during that conversation I informed Joe of our decision. We appreciate Joe’s efforts on behalf of the organization. I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season. Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision. We will hire a general manager and that person will lead the effort to hire a new head coach.”

The Giants finished with a 4-13 record this season, bring his two year record to 10-23.  Judge came to the Giants after eight seasons with the Patriots. He was hired in 2020 after fulfilling the role of special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach under head coach Bill Belichick.
