From the moment he was hired as the new head coach of the NY Giants, former Buffalo Bills assistant Brian Daboll has won over the hearts of the fanbase as a whole. Not only that, but Daboll continues to make a splash inside of the locker room, as several players have revealed just how much they’re enjoying working under him.

Joe Judge being gone has been a major blessing for so many. If you ask Giants punter Jamie Gillan, the changes inside of the locker room have been a complete and total breath of fresh air. In an interview with Sky Sports, the special teams stud said things over in East Rutherford feel like one happy family has joined forces.

"“He (Daboll) has 100 percent brought everybody together,” Gillan told Sky Sports. “He is a great coach. He’s hilarious for a start – a great dude. It’s nice because in the locker room everybody has come together and people are staying afterwards to hang out and I’m a big believer of having a locker room like that so it’s been nice to hang out, play ping pong after hours, getting to know one another and then showing up early in the morning and getting after it. It’s been brilliant.”"

This is tremendous insight from Gillan and it’s one that is sure to bring a smile to so many faces. The fact of the matter is that the team morale for the G-Men couldn’t have been lower last season. The team struggled throughout the campaign and they limped their way to a last-place finish in the NFC East, posting a 4-13 record.

Now, though, Daboll and new general manager Joe Schoen are starting to turn things around and there’s a bit of a buzz surrounding the organization leading up to training camp. The closer the players are to one another, the better it will be once the regular season gets underway against the Tennessee Titans.

Gillan spent the previous three seasons with the Cleveland Browns, really impressing with some amazing boots during his time in the AFC North. Now, the fourth-year player is looking to turn plenty of heads with the Giants in Year 1 with the squad. While the NY supporters hope Daniel Jones and Co. won’t need Gillan to take the field for too many punts, he’ll surely be fired up to take the field whenever his number is called.
