It sounds like the Giants are starting to fill out their coaching staff. Alex Marvez of The Sporting News reports (via Twitter) that Thomas McGaughey is expected to become the team’s new special teams coordinator.
McGaughey had spent two seasons as the Panthers special teams coordinator, but he was fired by the team earlier this week. During his first season at the helm, the coordinator helped lead his team to a league-leading three blocked field goals. Now, he’ll be reuniting with former Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman, who has the same job in New York.
Before his tenure with the Panthers, McGaughey spent time as the special teams coordinator for the 49ers, Jets, and Louisiana State. He’s also had stints with the Chiefs, Texans, Broncos, and Giants, where he was the assistant special teams coordinator from 2007 through 2010.
