New York Giants Fire OL Coach Marc Colombo; Bring In Dave DeGuglielmo

The New York Giants made a surprising move on Wednesday as they fired offensive line coach Marc Colombo. The Giants hired former Patriots, Colts, and Dolphins offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo to replace Colombo.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Joe Judge spent more time in the last two weeks focusing on the offensive line. Judge may have felt that Marc Colombo did not pull his weight as the position coach.

As a result of Judge’s “Belichick-like coaching,” the offensive line progressed positively in the last two weeks. The offensive line gave quarterback Daniel Jones more time to throw and the group blew holes for the running backs. As result, the Giants have had 150 or more rushing yards in the past two weeks.

Also, according to Ryan Dunleavy of the NY Post, Joe Judge and Marc Colombo had a heated discussion Tuesday night. Judge’s original plan was to bring DeGuglielmo on as a consultant/assistant to help in this offensive line’s progression. Colombo did not like Judge’s idea and Judge fired him early Wednesday.

The New York Giants interviewed Dave DeGuglielmo for the offensive line coaching position back in January. DeGuglielmo shares familiarity with head coach Joe Judge, quarterbacks’ coach Jerry Schuplinski, and even defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.

However, this is not the first time DeGuglielmo worked as a part of the Giants’ organization. He worked as an assistant offensive line coach and a quality control coach under Tom Coughlin back from 2004-2008.
