In two seasons as head coach, Judge posted a record of 10-23. He went 6-10 in his first season and followed that up with a 4-13 season in 2021.
Before getting the head coaching job, Judge was the Patriots’ special teams coach. He was only the second-ever special teams coach to be directly hired for a head coaching position in NFL history.
The Giants will be looking to fill a lot of leadership positions this offseason. After general manager Dave Gettleman retired on Monday, ownership decided to move on from Judge. The next general manager will lead the search for a new head coach.
Whoever gets the job next will have to decide on the future of quarterback Daniel Jones and will have to hope for better health from running back Saquon Barkley.
