Coughlin Opts For 'Continuity' On Giants' Coaching Staff

In officially annoucing the promotions of Sean Ryan to quarterbacks coach and Kevin Gilbride Jr. to wide receivers coach, Tom Coughlin said Thursday that "continuity" was a critical part of the decision.

"Continuity is important," Coughlin said. "It's not that I don't think there are some talented people out there. But I do think that these two are very talented and the best approach we could possibly take would be to continue to support our players at those positions with people who are products of the system."

Ryan had been the teams wide receivers coach, while Gilbride Jr. was serving as offensive quality control coach.

"What we have here in Sean Ryan and Kevin Gilbride were two young coaches, one being Sean, who had started out as a quality control coach, was very impressive in that role, and then was elevated to the wide receiver position, in which he did an outstanding job," Coughlin said. "Young Kevin Gilbride came in here as a quality control offensive assistant and his energy level, his enthusiasm, his overall optimism, the positive way that he attacks every job, and the importance of how well he performed his job - which makes everybody else's job easier on offense - because the information that he puts forth is accurate. I really came to the conclusion that this was best for us."
