Giants coaching news: Frank Cignetti, ex-Rutgers assistant, reportedly new QB coach

New, comments

Cignetti was at Rutgers in 2011.

The New York Giants have reportedly filled one of the vacancies on new coach Ben McAdoo's staff, reportedly hiring former Rutgers offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti to be the team's quarterbacks coach. Cignetti was only in Piscataway for one season before becoming quarterbacks coach of the St. Louis Rams. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2015 but was fired last month.

Previous reports have indicated that last year's quarterbacks coach, Mike Sullivan, is expected to become the team's offensive coordinator.

Cignetti has collegiate experience as a coordinator at Fresno State, North Carolina and Pittsburgh. He has worked in the NFL with the Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers.

The Giants still need position coaches at offensive line, defensive line, linebacker and strength and conditioning.

Adam Henry, formerly wide receivers coach with LSU and the 49ers, ix expected to fill that role with the Giants. Neither McAdoo nor the Giants have officially confirmed any coaching decisions.
