As reports of Giants assistant coaching hires continue to circulate, it now appears that Giants have found their next offensive line coach.
The Giants are moving towards hiring Marc Colombo as the team's offensive line coach, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed.
Colombo, 41, served as the Coboys offensive line coach for the past two season, and was their assistant offensive line coach in the three seasons prior to that.
Vacchiano has previously written about Colombo as an option, noting his ties to new Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett in Dallas.
Offensive line play has been a strength of the Cowboys in recent years, as evidence by the play of star running back Ezekiel Elliott. With Colombo as the team's O-line coach the last two seasons, Elliott was named to the Pro Bowl in both years, racking up a whopping 3,778 yards from scrimmage to go along with 23 total touchdowns.
Prior to coaching, Colombo played 10 seasons win the NFL with the Chicago Bears, Cowboys, and Miami Dolphins. He was originally a first-round pick of the Bears out of Boston College in 2002, when he was selected with the 29th overall pick.
