Giants fire coach Joe Judge after two seasons

By Pat Leonard

NEW YORK — The Giants have fired Joe Judge, the team said Tuesday.

Judge was let go with a 10-23 record in two seasons. He is the third straight coach the Giants have fired either during or after their second season with the team.

The Giants gave 19-46 Dave Gettleman an honorary sendoff on Sunday, only to blast Judge out the door two days later.

Their general manager interviews begin Wednesday morning with the Buffalo Bills’ Joe Schoen.

Co-owner John Mara released a statement on Tuesday:

“Steve (Tisch) and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction. We met with Joe yesterday afternoon to discuss the state of the team. I met again with Joe this afternoon, and it was during that conversation I informed Joe of our decision. We appreciate Joe’s efforts on behalf of the organization.

“I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season,” Mara added. “Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision.”

The Giants’ 22-59 record the past five years is tied for the worst in the league with the Jets. Coaching is not the reason why.
