Giants interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo is still listed as the team's defensive coordinator, and a source confirmed to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano that Spagnuolo will remain in that role while staying very involved in game-planning on defense for the time being.
It is not immediately clear whether Spagnuolo will assign defensive play-calling duties to an assistant coach.
Spagnuolo, is in the midst of his second coaching stint with the Giants, became interim head coach on Monday after the team fired coach Ben McAdoo.
As defensive coordinator in 2007, Spagnuolo's helped lead the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XLII. He moved on to become the Rams' head coach in 2009 and served in that role for three seasons. Upon his firing from the Rams, Spagnuolo served as the assistant head coach/secondary coach of the Baltimore Ravens before re-joining the Giants.
The 57-year-old will be considered for the head coaching position, according to Team president John Mara.
