Giants special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey revealed he has been dealing with a form of cancer since the offseason, he told reporters on Thursday.
McGaughey, who is in his second year leading special teams, has been able to undergo his chemotherapy treatments and return work on a regular basis.
"I'm not going to let chemotherapy or cancer get in the way of what I do," McGaughey told The Athletic's Dan Duggan. "I'm a father and I'm a football coach. That's what I do."
This is the second Giants employee to receive the awful news of a cancer diagnosis. GM Dave Gettleman revealed his lymphoma diagnosis on June 5 that shocked the Giants' locker room and the NFL world alike. Luckily, the 67-year-old learned that his cancer was in remission at the end of July.
Before the Giants, McGaughey was the Panthers special teams coordinator for two seasons. He also served as an assistant special teams coach for the Giants from 2007-2010.
