NY Giants and Brian Daboll have another coach they could lose this offseason
After all the success the NY Giants had during the 2022 regular season, it’s no surprise that both offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and defensive coordinator Wink Martdinale are getting head coaching looks.
However, it turns out they’re not the only assistants that Brian Daboll may have to replace this offseason. According to NFL insider Mike Garafolo, NY quarterbacks coach Shea Tierney is set to interview with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their open offensive coordinator job.
The Bucs fired Byron Leftwich earlier this month and are looking for a suitable replacement. Will Tierney end up being their guy for Todd Bowles?

Just like Kafka, Tierney is a young coach who is rising in the ranks. If Kafka does end up leaving the Giants, potentially for the Texans HC job, then a lot of people would like to see Daboll promote Tierney to offensive coordinator. Tierney also worked closely with Daniel Jones this past campaign and we saw how improved Danny Dimes was.
Jones finished the regular season with 3,205 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and only five interceptions. On the ground, we really saw Jones, aka Vanilla Vick, take things to a new level, as he posted 708 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground, both career highs.
At just 36 years old, it must be exciting for Tierney to be in a position to potentially run his own offense. One thing to keep in mind here, however, is that it’s up in the air whether or not Tom Brady will return to Tampa Bay next fall.
After the Bucs were eliminated by the Cowboys in the Wild Card Round, it felt like TB12 was saying his goodbyes during his press conference. Regardless of that, Tierney will certainly be intrigued about making a leap career wise. Having said that, he may want to wait and see what happens with Kafka before he makes any kind of a decision.
You never know, Daboll might be in need for a new OC sooner than later and he’d be wise to give Tierney strong consideration.
