New York Giants expected to hire Derek Dooley


The New York Giants are nearing the end of their search for a new coaching staff, with various roles having been officially filled in recent weeks.

On Monday, three incoming assistants — Jody Wright, Mark Colombo and Kevin Sherrer — confirmed their arrival in East Rutherford while a report courtesy of USA TODAY’s Art Stapleton added a fourth name to the list.

According to Stapleton, the Giants are also expected to hire Derek Dooley, who interviewed with the team last week.

Dooley spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons serving as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Missouri, which came on the heels of a five-year stint as wide receivers coach of the Dallas Cowboys, serving under current Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.

Prior to his time in Dallas, Dooley spent three years (2007-2009) as head coach Louisiana Tech and three years (2010-2012) as head coach at Tennessee.

Dooley also spent the 2005 and 2006 seasons coaching tight ends in Miami. Before that, he held various roles at LSU, SMU and Georgia.

Like the three aforementioned assistants, Dooley also changed his Twitter bio to read, “New York Giants.”
