The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants will be on the market for a new defensive coordinator after parting ways with Perry Fewell.

The Giants have now confirmed the news, and added that CB coach Peter Giunta has also been let go.

It was reported just this week that Fewell, who has been with the Giants since 2010, was expected to return to the Giants for another year so this move would qualify as a surprise. The speculation on Fewell's replacement begins now.

Here is a snapshot of the Giants defense under Fewell:

2014: Yards per game, 375.8 (29th); Points per game, 25.0 (23rd)
2013: Yards, 332.2 (8th); Points, 23.9 (18th)
2012: Yards, 383.4 (31st); Points, 21.5 (12th)
2011: Yards, 367.6 (22nd); Points, 23.1 (21st)
2010: Yards, 310.6 (7th); Points, 24.4 (21st)

More coming.
