According to multiple reports, the Giants have parted ways with their head coach after two seasons. Judge ends his tenure with a 10-23 record, including a 4-13 record in 2021. Judge became the first head coach in Giants history to lose 13 games following the team’s loss to Washington on Sunday .

Following Tom Coughlin’s (possibly forced) resignation in 2015, the Giants have already hired and fired three new coaches. Ben McAdoo led the Giants to an 11-5 record in 2016, but was fired a season later. Pat Shurmur never really seemed to gain power with the team and was sacked after two seasons.

Judge was hired ahead of the 2020 season and, to his credit, won two more games (six) than Shurmur the year before. The team made some big acquisitions this past offseason and were expected to compete for a Wild Card spot this year.

It didn’t, however, and a 1-7 season ending proved too much for Judge to overcome.

Luckily for them, there are a number of candidates for both positions, which look worthy of the challenge.

Friend of Team 104.5, Paul Schwartz, presented seven candidates for the post Giants general manager, including Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Jon Schoen, and Titans director of player personnel, Monti Ossenfort. All of the candidates described by Schwartz are tied to playoff teams, which can slow the process down.

Meanwhile, the coaching rumor mill is heating up, with both experienced coaches and promising newbies. Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is likely to be considered for a number of positions. Longtime interviewed head coaches like Eric Bienemy and Brian Daboll are also likely to be in the mix.
