New York Giants Hire Steve Spagnuolo As Defensive Coordinator


Steve Spagnuolo is headed back to New York.

The Ravens secondary coach has been hired by the New York Giants as their defensive coordinator after spending the last two seasons in Baltimore.

Going to the Giants is a bit of a homecoming for Spagnuolo, as he was New York's defensive coordinator in 2007-2008. He won a Super Bowl with the Giants in 2007, and was then hired as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams.

Spagnuolo, 55, has spent 15 years coaching in the NFL and is close with Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh. Both worked in Philadelphia under Andy Reid when they first got their start in the league.

Spagnuolo's departure  leaves the Ravens looking for a new secondary coach for the second year in a row, as Teryl Austin also left last season to join the Detroit Lions as their defensive coordinator. A likely in-house replacement for Spagnuolo is Chris Hewitt, who was an assistant secondary coach last year.

Spagnuolo is the first position coach to leave the Ravens this offseason.

The other big coaching question is the status of Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak, whom the Denver Broncos have officially requested to interview for their head coaching vacancy. Kubiak has stated that he plans to stay in Baltimore.
