Joe Judge has been with the New England Patriots since 2012. He served as a special teams assistant, special teams coach, and wide receivers coach. In 2019 he served as both the wide receivers coach and the special teams coach.
Before his stint in New England, he served as a special teams assistant at the University of Alabama. In his tenure, he has won two BCS National Championships and three Super Bowls.
The Giants fired Pat Shurmur after he earned a 9-23 record in two seasons as head coach. In 2019 New York finished with a 4-12 record, finishing third in the NFC East and missing the playoffs.
Judge and the Giants will try and re-tool the entire team to try and return to contention in 2020.
