The New York Giants Wednesday announced a series of changes to their front office and football operations department.

Chad Klunder has joined the organization as first scout coordinator, a position that includes both college and pro scouting. Klunder previously worked in the football program at Notre Dame from 2003-17.

Brendan Prophett will be an area scout concentrating on the Midwest. Prophett spent the previous three seasons as the Detroit Lions’ director of pro scouting. In 2015, he was an area scout for the New Orleans Saints.

Prior to his time in New Orleans, Prophett spent 15 seasons as a member of the Jets’ personnel staff. Prophett first worked in the NFL in 1999 as a pro personnel intern with the Giants.

Tim McDonnell, who spent the previous six seasons as a pro scout, is now the team’s assistant director of player personnel.

Corey Lockett is now a pro scout after being a pro personnel intern with the team in 2017 and 2018.

Chris Pridy, a coaching assistant, has been the top aide to head coaches Tom Coughlin, Ben McAdoo and Pat Shurmur since his arrival in 2004, will continue in the same capacity as the Giants’ director of football administration.

The Giants also added Ben Burress and Kevin Monangai as assistants to the coaching staff.

Pete Guelli is the Giants’ new senior vice president and chief commercial officer. Guelli spent 10 seasons with the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets and 10 with the Buffalo Bills.
