Steve Spagnuolo To Take Over For Ben McAdoo As Giants Coach For Rest Of The Season

After Ben McAdoo’s firing, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo may only be at the Meadowlands for the next month, but he will do so as head coach, according to multiple reports. 

Taking over for McAdoo, Spagnuolo was the logical choice, since he had head coaching experience with the Rams from 2009-2011, when he amassed an 10-38 record during the three seasons, after he was the defensive coordinator for the 2007 Giants that won the Super Bowl.

Although a failure as a head coach, the 57 year-old is respected by the players, especially the defense, as his main job will be caretaker of the club, while the healing process begins.

A runner-up to replace Tom Coughlin two years ago, Spagnuolo chose to remain with the Giants and oversee the defense, which rebounded last year to be one of the best in the league.

However don’t expect Spagnuolo to be here long, as the Giants will begin a full search for a head coach this off-season, along with a new general manager.
