2. OL coach Bobby Johnson
Given how awful the Giants offensive line has been in 2023, this one comes as no shock to anyone as far as coaches that should not be retained. The biggest indictment on Bobby Johnson’s coaching tenure with the Giants is the regression with Evan Neal at right tackle in his second season. Everyone understood Neal struggling as a rookie. It was expected. Neal was going up against a lot of premier pass-rushers as a rookie.
However, Neal barely looking competent to be a starter in his second season to the point where many think it’s in Neal's best interest to move to guard says a lot. Not only for Neal, but for Johnson, who has failed to properly coach him.
Aside from Neal, we’ve seen other young linemen struggle under Johnson’s watch. Joshua Ezeudu didn’t look right when he briefly played left tackle. Marcus McKethan was so bad, he was forced to the bench once players returned. Shane Lemieux barely looked like a professional offensive lineman when he got to play again.
Johnson has outstayed his welcome with the Giants and he should be the first assistant that Daboll does not retain for the 2024 season.
