While the majority of Joe Judge's first coaching staff with the Giants is already finalized, Big Blue continues to bring in some new faces.
Former University of Tennessee strength coach Craig Fitzgerald is leaving the Volunteers for the Giants' strength coach job, he announced via his Twitter account.
"Tennessee is a first-class program and will continue to rise under Coach Pruitt's and Coach Fulmer's leadership," Fitzgerald wrote.
"I will be returning to the NFL and joining the New York Giants. Thank you for everything and Go Vols!"
Patrick Brown of GoVols247.com notes that Fitzgerald is one of the most well-respected strength coaches in all of college football, and that both Alabama and Maryland have recently had interest in hiring him away.
"Talking about the strength staff, I can't say enough about Craig and his guys and what they've done over the last three years," Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt said of Fitzgerald earlier this month. "Our guys continue to get bigger and stronger and develop discipline and, to me, a lot of mental toughness in the offseason.
"I think Craig's a guy that's in high demand. There's no secret, there's been several jobs that's been open across our league in the last couple of weeks, and Craig was the first guy that they called. He decided to stay here. He's in demand, because he's good at what he does."
Fitzgerald has coached at a number of colleges, including Penn State and South Carolina, but he was in the NFL from 2014-17 with the Houston Texans.
