Giants fire DC Fewell and DBs coach Giunta
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have fired defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and defensive backs coach Pete Giunta.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin announced the moves on Wednesday, a little more than a week after the Giants (6-10) missed the playoffs for the third straight season and the defense was ranked among the worst in the NFL.
Fewell had been the Giants defensive coordinator since 2010 and was at the helm when the Giants defense played a major role in their Super Bowl victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in February 2012.
Giunta had been with the Giants since 2006 and was a part of the Super Bowl wins in 2008 and ’12. His secondary was expected to be a strength of the team this season but it was hit by injuries.
