With Dom Capers telling the Giants “no thanks,” the team moved quickly to find an internal replacement for former defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
The Giants have promoted linebackers coach Bill Sheridan to the position.
“Bill is a very good football coach,” coach Tom Coughlin said in a release. “As a linebackers coach, you’re a central figure in the spoke, because you’re involved in the coordination of the front and the linebackers and then the back seven. He has done a good job of encompassing the entire defense and grasping the aggressive style.”
Sheridan has coached the team’s linebackers for four seasons. Coughlin also interviewed defensive backs coach Peter Guinta.
