Who would have thought that the Miami Dolphins, a team with only five wins to their name in 2019, would employ such a highly-sought after coaching stuff? Well, there’s at least one NFL organization with fond eyes for Dolphins coaches, and that is none other than the New York Football Giants.
Giants are Expected to Hire Jerry Schuplinski as QB Coach
After plucking away Patrick Graham, the ‘Phins 2019 defensive coordinator on Sunday evening, the G-Men have seemingly decided to double-dip in the Miami Coaching staff. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo has reported that a source close to him has informed him that New York is expected to hire Jerry Schuplinski as their new quarterback coach.
Schuplinski, much like Patrick Graham, has a history with Giants newly-hired head coach Joe Judge. Judge and Schuplinksi both served under Bill Belichick’s watchful eye as coaches for the New England Patriots. During their shared tenures in Foxborough, the duo was able to capture three Lombardi Trophies.
Schuplinski will work hand in hand with New York quarterback Daniel Jones as the team tries to fast track his trajectory into becoming one of the league’s top signal-callers.
Giants Add Freddie Roach as DL Coach
“Freddie Roach is a rising star.” That’s at least what two former Ole miss coaches have said about Giants’ newly hired defensive line coach.
Per 247Sports, former Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze kept it simple when discussing what Roach brought to his program, stating that he is a “heck of a technician. Demanding on his kids.”
Matt Luke, also a former colleague of Roach during his Ole Miss tenure, opted to give a more in-depth view on Roach’s greatness to TideSports.com.
“He is a rising star in this profession. The thing he does best is he has an unbelievable relationship with his players. I think that also carries over into recruiting. But the relationship he has with his players, his players love him. They trust him. I think to be a successful coach, they got to know you care with about them. I think they know that about Freddie.”
Roach started out his career at the University of Alabama where he served as a strength and conditioning coach. He also had a one-year stint at East Mississippi Community College. Roach served as the strength and conditioning coordinator, as well as the defensive line coach under head man Buddy Stephens at EMCC. The program, which rose to national recognition as the featured school on Netflix’s Last Chance U, won the NJCAA national championships during Roach’s only season there.
In New York, Roach will have the opportunity to coach up arguably the most well-rounded unit amongst the entirety of the Giants roster. Leonard Williams, Dexter Lawrence, Dalvin Tomlinson, and BJ Hill all offer tremendous upside and are some of the true cornerstones of the Giants franchise.
