The Giants Have Reportedly Hired A Defensive Coordinator

The Giants Have Reportedly Hired A Defensive Coordinator

Judge is the first special teams coordinator to be hired as a head coach since the Baltimore Ravens selected John Harbaugh in 2008.

The New York Giants are hiring former Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Patrick Graham as their new defensive coordinator, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Sunday.

Many Dolphins fans thought after the season ended there would be little shake-up to the coaching staff and now Miami is going to be replacing both coordinators and bringing in a new offensive system and now possibly a new defensive system. He led one of the league's worst pass rushes, with the Dolphins managing just 23 sacks in 2019, the fewest in the league.

He spent time with the Giants back in 2016 and 2017 as well as with head coach Joe Judge for four seasons with the New England Patriots. They will run a different offense under new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, but Boyer and Flores will presumably keep things similar on defense. Boyer has a reputation of identifying and developing hidden defensive talent, with success stories like Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler, Patriots cornerbacks J.C. Jackson and Jonathan Jones and Dolphins cornerback Nik Needham.

Diplomats from EU, Australia and Gulf were also expected to be part of the delegation but eventually dropped out. Wells was referring to the Indian government-organised two-day trip to the occupied region last week.

Boyer followed Flores to Miami from New England a year ago and served as the team's passing game/cornerbacks coach in 2019.

The Dolphins, who had to approve the interview and hire for a lateral move, saw a lot of promise in Boyer and believe he can flourish in his new role.

"What I learned from Coach Saban was it is important to address everybody not only on what they have to do but how it should look, what I need to do to get there and why it's important", Judge said.
