Giants Can Offensive Line Coach Marc Colombo Following an Argument with Judge

The Giants Wednesday announced they have fired offensive line coach Marc Colombo, replacing him with longtime NFL assistant Dave DeGuglielmo.

The firing came after Colombo got into a heated argument with Giants head coach Joe Judge after he was told that the team was hiring DeGuglielmo as a consultant.

“We appreciate what Marc has done, but I felt like this move is in the best interest of the team,” Judge said in a statement released by the team Wednesday.

ESPN reports that when Colombo was told of the DeGuglielmo hire that he didn’t agree with the move, and that he felt that he was being undermined.

A Giants spokesperson said the report of a physical altercation is “absolutely false in every way.”

New York’s line had slowly been getting better as the season has progressed, but it remains to be seen how they will do with DeGuglielmo now running the show.

In each of the last three games the Giants have run for at least 150 yards on the ground.

DeGuglielmo was an assistant offensive line coach/quality control with the Giants from 2004 to ’08. He also worked with Judge in New England when he coached the Patriots’ offensive line in 2014 and ’15.

The 42-year-old Colombo played 10 years in the NFL for the Chicago Bears, Cowboys and Miami Dolphins.
