The New York Giants will hire former Dallas Cowboys player and assistant coach Marc Colombo to coach their offensive line, per multiple reports.
Colombo played in the NFL from 2002-2011. He was on Jason Garrett’s coaching staff in Dallas from 2016 until being let go at the end of last season. Colombo took over as offensive line coach in the middle of the 2018 season.
Here is what RJ Ochoa of SB Nation’s Blogging The Boys told me recently about Colombo.
Colombo did a great job for the Cowboys last season and a half or so.
Not sure if you know but he played for the Cowboys in the early 2000s ish (he was Romo’s o-lineman mostly). During the bye back in 2018 they traded for Amari and fired their offensive line coach Paul Alexander and promoted Colombo. The group had been really bad to that point and then he took over and things got great again. They all attributed it to him being much closer to them in age and more of their buddy than anything.
The Giants had also interviewed Dave DeGuglielmo, a well-traveled one-time Giants assistant, for the job.
