The more the merrier! The work that Brian Daboll has done with the NY Giants over the past year has been sensational. The 2022 AP Coach of the Year was a gift from above and the future is bright for the G-Men with Daboll running the show in East Rutherford. Well, are you familiar with the term the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree?
We bring this up because there’s some exciting news out of East Rutherford, with Daboll adding his son, Christian, to the NY staff. Daboll’s baby boy, a former student assistant at Penn State, will be joining the Big Blue staff as an offensive assistant.
NY Giants hire Brian Daboll’s son as an offensive assistant starting this season
Hey, let the younger Daboll make his way to New Jersey, study from his old man and learn the ropes of what it takes to be an assistant at the NFL level. This is a low-risk move for the Giants, as according to ESPN insider Jordan Raanan, Christian is expected to break down film as part of his responsibilities, while also putting in some quality control work.
While this feels like a bit of a feel-good story, there’s also plenty of fans who aren’t huge supporters of this move due to nepotism that has gone on within the organization for a while. Did Daboll hire his son? Yes. However, it’s not like his kid is going to be in a high up position.
This feels like an entry level spot for someone trying to get their foot in the door. Two Dabolls are better than one if you ask us. This kind of a move shouldn’t be any kind of a distraction for Daboll or any of the members on his staff.
General manager Joe Schoen clearly has no issue with it either, as he wouldn’t have given this hire the green light if he was worried about it having a negative impact. This is an awesome update if you ask us.
