MOBILE, Ala. – The Giants could look in a familiar direction to fill their spot for an offensive regular service bus.
Dave DeGuglielmo, who won a Super Bowl as an assistant to the Giants, is expected to speak to new head coach Joe Judge about a position on the jury, an NFL source told The Post. The judge will examine the players later this week in the senior bowl exercises.
Bill Callahan, one of the best NFL offensive coaches, travels to Cleveland to work for the Browns. It is not known whether the judge has reached Callahan. The judge hired Jason Garrett as the Giants' offensive coordinator. Callahan worked for Garrett with the Cowboys and the two were unlikely to have worked with the Giants again.
DeGuglielmo is a well-traveled offensive coach with a strong connection to Tom Coughlin. It was Coughlin who started DeGuglielmo in 1991 at Boston College. Coughlin brought DeGuglielmo to the Giants in 2004 and he stayed during the 2008 season. Since then DeGuglielmo has worked for the Jets, Patriots, Chargers, Dolphins, Colts and Dolphins again last season.
Richter and DeGuglielmo worked with the patriots at Bill Belichick in 2015 and 2016, so there is a connection.
DeGuglielmo is a strong teacher of offensive line techniques, but is considered to be very personal. It remains to be seen if he matches what Judge is looking for.
The giants' interest in DeGuglielmo was first reported by ESPN.
The judge has no connection to Marc Colombo, who will also interview for the Offensive Line Job ESPN, However, Colombo has a strong bond with Garrett.
Colombo, 41, played the offensive line for the cowboys when Garrett was the offensive coordinator and in 2010 the interim coach. Colombo was a Garrett employee from 2016 until Garrett's contact was not renewed after this past season.
The Giants were not happy with Hal Hunter, a veteran offensive coach who had worked for Pat Shurmur's staff for the past two years.
