Giants’ Steve Spagnuolo Expected To Return As Defensive Coordinator

Update:

New Giants HC Ben McAdoo said that the nothing is finalized for the current coaching staff, but he likes the fluidity of the people he has in place.

The staff at this point in time is very fluid. Nothing is set in stone,” said McAdoo.

Alex Marvez reports that Steve Spagnuolo will return as defensive coordinator for the 2016 season.

Numerous reports revealed that Spagnuolo returning for 2016 was a part of the Giants’ plans this offseason all along, so this information shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

In fact, Spagnuolo was a candidate to become the Giants next head coach following the resignation of Tom Coughlin, but the team elected to hire former OC Ben McAdoo to become head coach.

Spagnuolo, 56, was once the Rams’ head coach back in 2009 after leaving the Giants once before. He lasted just two years in St. Louis before he was fired and later hired by New Orleans.

He has held a large number of jobs within the NFL and has coached at previous times with the Eagles, Rams, Saints and Ravens.

It is unclear if the Giants have anyone else in mind to become their next defensive coordinator, but it appears certain that McAdoo will retain Spagnuolo.
