EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The New York Giants have reportedly found their next head coach.
Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network both report that the franchise is finalizing a contract with Joe Judge, the Patriots special teams' coordinator and wide receivers coach as of late Tuesday morning.
Judge joined the Patriots staff in 2012 as an assistant special teams coach, the 2019 season was the first he assumed the hybrid role of special teams coordinator/wide receivers coach.
During his eight seasons with New England, the team won three Super Bowl championships, with the latest win coming in 2018 - where the special teams unit played a key part in the Patriots win over the Los Angeles Rams; the punt coverage pinned the Rams deep inside their own territory throughout the game, with three of their drives starting inside the ten yard line.
Prior to joining the Patriots organization, Judge worked under Nick Saban at the University of Alabama as a football analyst, where the school won two National Championships during his time there.
Judge is 38 years old and from Philadelphia.
