Giants still need an o-line coach
After firing Marc Colombo during the season and not being able to come to an agreement with Dave DeGuglielmo, the New York Giants are still looking for an offensive line coach for next season.
Dan Duggan of The Athletic is reporting that the Giants will soon hire a new offensive line coach and that they will interview Houston Texans’ offensive line coach Mike Devlin.
Expect the Giants to hire a new offensive line coach within the next week or so. A source said interviews for the position will start later this week.
A full list of candidates isn’t known, but a source said Texans offensive line coach Mike Devlin is among those who will interview. Devlin was hired in 2015 by former Texans coach Bill O’Brien, another coach from the Bill Belichick tree. Devlin was an assistant with the Jets from 2006-14, coaching the tight ends and offensive line. Ben Wilkerson, who has been the Giants’ assistant offensive line coach for the past three seasons, is not believed to be a candidate for the role.
It looks like the Giants will have some competition when it comes to hiring Devlin with the Pittsburgh Steelers also expected to interview him.
Devlin is a former offensive lineman who played for the Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals from 1993-1999. He started his coaching career in 2004 at the University of Toledo.
