The New York Giants released Joe Judge of his duties today (January 11) as head coach. The team made the official announcement this evening via social media.
“Steve (Tisch) and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction,” said team president John Mara in a news release. “We met with Joe yesterday afternoon to discuss the state of the team. I met again with Joe this afternoon, and it was during that conversation I informed Joe of our decision. We appreciate Joe’s efforts on behalf of the organization.
The firing of Judge took place just a day after Dave Gettleman (Senior Vice President and General Manager) of the Giants announced his retirement. According to Giants.com, Big Blue has already started their search for a replacement.
Judge was the head coach of the New York Giants for only two seasons and previously worked as the special teams coordinator for the New England Patriots.
