He may be great, I just don't know enough about him. I would have preferred someone more experienced, but have to trust Gettleman's judgement on this, as I'm sure he recommended the guy to Rivera.

The above referenced story is nice, but it doesn't tell us anything about his football background or coaching philosophy.

same here. gettleman recommendation is nice and makes me feel better about the hire than i might otherwise, but i would have preferred someone with experience. that is frustrating to me because we all know this was a problem with the coaching staff, i mean even rivera knew it was a problem, and yet they still do nothing to change it. in fact they bring in even less experience.

i just don't understand working so hard to make a situation you know is bad even worse.

Serves me right to listen to Joe Person..

Joe Person@josephperson
Holbrook has never been a position coach before, but spent the last four years on the Giants defensive staff.

Never overlook the Patriot league..


Called him Holbrook?

And yes, the offensive QC still remains (and will likely be someone nobody has heard of)

Yep, kinda surprised the OLine coach kept his job I guess it's just because he was working with scrubs because of injuries

Oline did a great job toward the end of the season with what he had to work with. Also the line seemed to improve after we stop running the option every two seconds.

Sounds like if Rivera fails, we have a new dc.


No way. This guy needs much more experience before he would be ready for DC for an NFL team.

The short story is that he has never been a position coach.
He spent 4 years as the Defensive QC Coach.
Breaking down film and running the practice squad.

He's got a 10 y/o son that thinks that you should play cover 2 against the Falcons.

he's been a position coach and DC at lower levels. Maybe you needed the longer story.

I get that it's not a sexy name, but like was already said earlier - guys that work their butts off to get ahead, not the worst thing in the world. I'm sure being a third tier assistant for the Giants isn't the sexiest thing in the world, but consider that the same tier of coach from Carolina received four promotions (two here, two with the Browns).

there were two assistants there, so hopefully they fill both. There's also Babich's job, and ST assistant, hopefully.

this is a great hire

especially when around this time next year, when rivera's fired and gettleman's filling the coaching staff, he'll already have a linebackers coach to start off
