Giants Shuffle Offensive Staff:


The New York Giants announced a pair of promotions on their offensive coaching staff today, moving Mike Sullivan from receivers coach to quarterbacks coach, and Sean Ryan from offensive quality control coach to receivers coach.

Sullivan, who has been on the Giants’ staff since Tom Coughlin was hired as head coach in 2004, replaces Chris Palmer, who left last month and became the head coach of the UFL’s New York franchise. Ryan was offensive quality control coach for the last three years.

“The major reason that I felt strongly about Mike Sullivan coaching the quarterbacks here is that Mike has been with us for all six years and he’s been an integral part of the progress of our pass game,” Coughlin said in an article on the team’s web site. “He was the position coach for the wide receivers last year and worked very closely with the quarterbacks and the offensive coordinator. He has a very good understanding of our passing game.”

Giants quarterback Eli Manning endorsed Sullivan’s promotion.

“I talked to Coach Coughlin about this,” Manning said. “I feel very comfortable with Coach Sullivan. I knew he was in the mix. I feel very good about him moving to the quarterback position.”
