Giants' assistant special teams coach Thomas McGaughey is leaving the Giants to take a job on Les Myles' staff at LSU.
From ESPN....."New York Giants special teams coach Tom Quinn will need to find a new assistant to help improve his unit after a very difficult season.
Thomas McGaughey is leaving the Giants to accept the special teams coordinator/defensive line coach position at LSU. McGaughey has been the special teams assistant coach since 2007 under Quinn."
I have two interpretations here.....first, McGaughey may be seeking more job security in the college ranks. With the lockout looming, the Giants have said they did not plan to cut any salaries or jobs, but that could change with the circumstances.
Second, it is possible that McGaughey left because he believed Quinn may be dismissed and he would assume the coordinator position. That has not - and will not - happen anytime soon.
