Giants Add Patriots Patrick Graham To Coaching Staff
The New York Giants are adding the final parts to their coaching ranks. The Boston Herald reports that Patrick Graham will leave the Patroits for the defensive line coaching position in New York.
The Patriots are down one more coach, as Patrick Graham is headed to New York to join the Giants as their new defensive line coach, according to a source.
Graham was most recently the linebackers coach the past two seasons, mentoring stars Jamie Collins and Dont’a Hightower. Before that he served as the defensive line coach. In all, the Yale graduate, who is 37, was with the Patriots for seven seasons.
There was talk of him possibly being the next in line to take over as the defensive coordinator in New England if Matt Patricia were to land a head coaching job elsewhere. Perhaps moving out gives him a better opportunity at a defensive coordinator’s job.
Looks like Coach McAdoo has a complete staff, and should be prepared to get some new players in the draft and free agency!
