Brian Daboll continues to add coaches

Tony Sparano Jr.

Brian Daboll’s New York Giants coaching staff is continuing to take shape. The Giants are reportedly hiring Tony Sparano Jr. away from the Carolina Panthers to be their assistant offensive line coach. Sparano Jr. held that same position for the Panthers in 2021.

Sparano Jr., son of the late Tony Sparano, has been coaching in the NFL since 2011. He has worked with the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Panthers. He was assistant offensive line coach in Jacksonville from 2017-2020.

Sparano Jr. was offensive quality control coach in Miami in 2011 when Daboll was Dolphins offensive coordinator.

In other coaching news, Adam Henry will apparently not be returning to the Giants for a second stint at wide receivers coach. Henry held that position in 2016-2017 during Ben McAdoo’s tenure as head coach, and was reportedly under consideration to be brought back.
