Giants interviewed Matthew Harper for special teams coordinator role

The New York Giants interviewed San Francisco 49ers assistant Matt Harper for their vacant special teams coordinator position over the weekend.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport was the first to report the news.

Harper, 39, has been the 49ers assistant special teams coach since 2021 and served as an assistant for the Philadelphia Eagles for eight seasons prior to his stint in San Francisco.

The Giants parted ways with Thomas McGaughey last week. McGaughey served as the Giants’ special teams coordinator for six seasons under three different head coaches — Pat Shurmur, Joe Judge, and Brian Daboll.

In addition to Harper, a New Jersey native, the Giants have requested interviews with several other candidates but have been denied.
