New York Giants coach suspended

As of Tuesday evening, the team had not heard anything from Martindale, who stormed out of the building on Monday, and Tuesday morning was on a flight headed to a home he has in Florida.


What is apparent is that Martindale and the Giants are done after two seasons, with clear and present signs that Martindale and head coach Brian Daboll endured through a deteriorating relationship that could no longer continue.


Martindale is under contract and owed $3 million for the 2024 season.

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll has completed the filling out his coaching staff for the upcoming season. This staff will also see three returning assistants gain additional responsibilities.


Offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, who had interviewed for the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks head coaching jobs and was requested by the Seahawks to be interviewed for their offensive coordinator role (the request was denied), was promoted to assistant head coach. Kafka will also retain his role as offensive coordinator, though it is unknown if he will be the primary play-caller in 2024.


Defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson, who received an interview for the team’s defensive coordinator role, which ultimately went to Shane Bowen, will have additional duties this year as the team’s defensive passing game coordinator.


Quarterbacks coach Shea Tierney, the offensive coordinator in this year’s Senior Bowl, will also be the team’s offensive passing game coordinator.


The two newest additions are Charlie Bullen, who will take on the outside linebackers coach role previously held by the fired Drew Wilkins, and Zak Kuhr, who will be a defensive assistant, a role previously held by Kevin Wilkins, who was also dismissed at the end of the 2023 season by Daboll

Bullen spent the previous two seasons as the Illinois football program’s outside linebackers coach/pass rush coordinator. He has 11 years of NFL coaching experience, including four years with the Cardinals, where he was the team’s assistant linebacker coach before being promoted to outside linebacker coach for the 2020-2022 seasons.
