We're sure you've heard this before, but the 2023 campaign didn't go according to plan for Brian Daboll and the NY Giants. After going to the postseason in 2022, the Giants have been a total flop this year, holding a 5-11 record entering Week 18.
Coach Dabes has seemingly lost the trust of a lot of fans, which is shocking as he was named the 2022 NFL Coach of the Year for what he was able to get done in his first campaign in the NFC East. However, while some people have speculated Daboll could be on his way out, insider Jay Glazer has silenced those talks on Sunday:
Brian Daboll is locked in as the NY Giants head coach for the 2024 season
Come on, there's just no way the Giants can move on from Daboll after one terrible campaign. The belief is that Coach Dabes is the right man for the job for the long haul, but there's no question that this team needs to take a step forward in '24.
Everything that could have gone wrong for the Giants this season did, including $160 million quarterback Daniel Jones suffering a torn ACL against the Raiders. This offseason, some tough decisions will be on the way for Joe Schoen, but keeping Daboll in town is a no-brainer.
The same can't be said for multiple assistants. It's unknown what will end up happening will all three of Daboll's coordinators, but it's feeling more and more likely that either Wink Martindale or Mike Kafka (or both) could be with new teams once Week 1 rolls around in September.
Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey appears to be on the hot seat too. As Glazer mentioned, Daboll is safe, but changes for his coaching staff will surely be on the way. If guys are fired, it will be on Daboll to make sure he brings in the right replacements. This team MUST avoid another rough go in '24 and it's on Daboll to prevent that from happening.
