Joe Judge fired by New York Giants after two seasons as head coach
The Giants need a new head coach for the fourth time in six years.
Joe Judge has been fired by the Giants after two years and 33 games, the third straight coach co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch have dismissed in two seasons or less.
The team announced the decision on Tuesday afternoon.
“Steve (Tisch) and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction,” Mara said in a statement. “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.
“I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season. Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision.”
