On Tuesday, the New York Giants announced the firing of coach Joe Judge. The decision comes just one day after former general manager Dave Gettleman announced his retirement.
Joe Judge went 10-23 in his two years with the New York Giants and is the third New York Giants coach to be fired after a maximum of two seasons in a row. The first two are Ben McAdoo (13-15) and Pat Shurmur (9-23).
John Mara, owner of the New York Giants, said: “We discussed the current state of the team with Joe Judge yesterday afternoon. I had another interview with Joe Judge this afternoon and informed him of our decision. We thank Joe Judge for his dedication. Said that hopefully after the last game, I feel like the team is on the right track. Unfortunately, I can’t say that right now. So we made that decision.”
Joe Judge’s lead winning percentage (0.303) ranks third from last in franchise history. But the New York Giants have also missed an unusually high number of players this season due to injury. Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, left tackle Andrew Thomas and others have all missed at least two games.
