New Giants head coach Joe Judge will have the freedom to choose his staff, and that staff will include Thomas McGaughey, who will be staying on as the special teams coordinator, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed.
McGaughey, 46, has been working in that capacity with the Giants since 2018, and oversaw a group in 2019 that was among the bright spots for a Giants team that went 4-12.
Before joining the Giants, McGaughey served as the special teams coordinator for the Panthers (2016-17), 49ers (2015), and Jets (2014). He has also served as an assistant special teams coordinator with the Giants (2007-10), Broncos (2005-06), and Chiefs (2002).
McGaughey began his coaching career in the college ranks in 1998 with Houston, where he was a graduate assistant.
While Judge and the Giants are retaining McGaughey, they will almost certainly be replacing current defensive coordinator James Bettcher and current offensive coordinator Mike Shula.
