Brainstorming Replacements for Spags

With Steve Spagnuolo most likely getting a head coaching job, the Giants are faced with the unenviable task of finding a replacement for him. A replacement for the guy who stymied the Patriots. Tough task indeed. Who should replace him? Let’s discuss:

-Mike Waufle, Defensive Line Coach for the Giants

As coach of the very effective D-Line, Waufle will most certainly get consideration. A coaching veteran of 30 years, he has overseen the vast improvement of Justin Tuck, Barry Cofield, and Fred Robbins.

-Peter Giunta, Secondary/Corners Coach for the Giants

Having already been the defensive coordinator for the 1999 Super Bowl winning Rams, Giunta might be the top internal choice. He has overseen the development of Aaron Ross and Corey Webster, both who have turned into top flight corners.

-Jim Washburn, Defensive Line Coach for the Titans

Has developed stars such as Jevon Kearse and Albert Haynesworth. This year’s defensive line might be the top in football. If Jim Schwartz, the current D-coordinator in Nashville, does not leave for a head coaching job, Washburn should be at the top of the list for the G-Men.

-Larry Coyer, Assistant Head Coach for the Bucs

Coyer, a former Broncos D-Coordinator, oversees the D-Line for the Bucs. Has over 40 years of coaching experience. Bucs assistants always seem to make good coordinators/ head coaches.

This is just a brainstorm. There’s a chance Spagnuolo won’t leave. But if he does, the new coordinator has big shoes to fill. Hopefully he does.
