Jan 16 Almost
six years to the day after Steve Spagnuolo left the Giants, he was rehired
as their defensive coordinator. It's hardly a surprise that coach Tom Coughlin
and the Giants settled on the familiar Spagnuolo. He was always the heavy favorite
to resurface with the team.
one player from Spagnuolo's previous tenure, defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka,
remains on the roster, and he is not expected back in 2015. Safeties coach David
Merritt is the only member of the defensive coaching staff who worked with Spagnuolo
(the Giants also announced that Tim Walton will be their cornerbacks coach, replacing
Peter Giunta, who was fired with Fewell).
Steve Spagnuolo and the New York Giants are made for each other and having
him back as defensive coordinator will return them to Super Bowl glory, or at
least the playoffs. Maybe the Giants see something in him that no one else in
this hiring cycle saw, and maybe they're right. I just don't think, if I were
the Giants, that I'd risk my future on it.
Johnson has only ever had one interview for a defensive coordinator gig. This
time, Pepper Johnson was sure his chance was coming. He had finally stepped out
from Bill Belichick's long shadow. His old team, the Giants, was talking to him
about the defensive coordinator job he's always wanted. Then his phone rang on
Thursday morning and Tom Coughlin told him "We're going in a different direction."
Jan 15 Special
Report - Hiring the next defensive coordinator may be the biggest decision
the Giants will make since they decided to retain Coughlin and Reese or since
letting offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride go. Maybe even since hiring of Coughlin
as head coach in 2004, which was a Franchise decision with a capital F since that
was the year they also moved heaven and earth to get Eli Manning.
Giants want the right guy and won't compromise. As a franchise that prides
itself as having a level, measured and consistent operation, the Giants won't
scamper to the hottest coach on the market. They are in a curious spot, however,
since the word is that co-owner John Mara has read Coughlin and Reese a riot act
of sorts and told them, allegedly, that 2015 shall be a year of great success
or they may be asked to vacate the premises.
Coughlin has made it through two straight losing seasons and hasn't been to
the postseason since the Giants won the Super Bowl following the 2011 season.
He likely won't be around a year from now if that doesn't change. "We need
to be a playoff team in 2015," team president and CEO John Mara said on WFAN

week after strongly defending his embattled defensive coordinator, Tom Coughlin
reversed course and fired Perry Fewell -- a move that could clear the path for
the return of Steve Spagnuolo, one of the most popular and successful defensive
coordinators the Giants have had in years.
the second straight year there has been a major shakeup to coach Tom Coughlin's
staff. Coughlin was asked to return once again, but this time without Fewell as
his top defensive lieutenant. Last year offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was
forced into retirement and longtime tight ends coach Mike Pope and running backs
coach Jerald Ingram were fired.
Coughlin's firing of defensive coordinator Perry Fewell means he is out of
scapegoats and the next scapegoat will be him, so the Giants head coach better
get this one right. Interviewing former Giants inside linebacker Pepper Johnson
is necessary. "I would have to calm down my emotions, but I would love that
opportunity," Johnson told The Post Wednesday.
his two years with the Giants, Steve Spagnuolo's defense ranked fifth and
seventh in the NFL and the defensive surge in 2007 guided the Giants to victory
in Super Bowl XLII, limiting the record-breaking offense of the unbeaten Patriots
to 14 points. Rarely does an organization get the opportunity to call for a do-over,
but the Giants have a chance to bring Spagnuolo back as their defensive coordinator.
Coughlin also dismissed cornerbacks coach Peter Giunta.
coaches were handcuffed by an inordinate number of injuries. Giunta had just
one game in which his full allotment of healthy cornerbacks was available. Prince
Amukamara, Walter Thurmond III and Trumaine McBride all went on injured reserve
and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie spent most of the season battling injuries. "We
all understand in this league when a defense is unsuccessful," safety Antrel Rolle
said on SiriusXM's NFL Radio shortly after the Fewell decision was reported, "but
I figured that he would be back given that we had so many people on IR, to give
him a chance to make the wrong right."
