Perry Fewell
Defensive Coordinator

Biography

Perry Fewell is in his fifth season as the Giants’ defensive coordinator, continuing a tenure that has been highlighted by numerous outstanding defensive performances and a Super Bowl victory.

 

Fewell’s defense improved considerably during the course of the 2013 season. Entering a Week 6 game in Chicago, the defense was ranked 26th in the NFL, allowing an average of 395.2 yards per game. At the conclusion of the season, the unit was ranked eighth in the league, giving up 332.3 yards a game, an improvement of 63 yards per game during the final 10 weeks. That was also significantly better than the numbers from the 2012 season, when the defense was ranked 31st, allowing 383.4 yards per game.

 

The Giants finished 18th in scoring defense, allowing 23.9 points a game. Entering Week 6, they were 32nd and last in scoring defense, giving up 36.4 points a game.

 

The run defense ranked 14th in the NFL, allowing 108.9 yards a game. The Giants were usually at their best against the NFL’s best running backs. They faced each of the league’s top eight rushers – two of them twice – and only one of them ran for more than 100 yards (San Diego’s Ryan Mathews, with 103 yards).

 

After linebacker Jon Beason arrived in a trade on Oct. 4, Fewell quickly incorporated him into the defense. Beason started 11 games and his 98 tackles were the team’s second-highest total. Safety Antrel Rolle was the Giants’ leading tackler for the third consecutive season and was selected to play in the Pro Bowl.

 

In 2012, Giants opponents scored 344 points, or 56 fewer than their foes scored in the team’s 2011 championship season. The Giants were tied for 12th in the NFL in scoring defense.

 

Two significant reasons for the improvement in scoring defense were the defense’s performance in the red zone and takeaways.

 

In 2011, the Giants surrendered 34 touchdowns on 61 opposing trips inside their 20-yard line, a 55.7 touchdown percentage that left them tied with their Super Bowl opponents, New England, for 21st in the league. The following year, the Giants allowed only 23 touchdowns on 50 opposing possessions in the red zone, a 46.0 percentage that was sixth in the NFL.

 

That season, the Giants were fourth in the NFL in both takeaways (35, four more than they had in 2011) and turnover differential (plus-14, a significant improvement over 2011’s plus-7). The plus-14 was the Giants’ best turnover differential since they were plus-25 in 1997. The Giants intercepted 21 passes in 2012, their highest total since they had 27 picks, also in 1997.

 

Safety Stevie Brown intercepted eight passes, the most by a Giant since Willie Williams had 10 in 1968. Brown’s 307 interception return yards broke the former Giants’ single-season record of 251, set by Hall of Famer Emlen Tunnell in 1949 and matched by Dick Lynch in 1963. The 307 return yards were the most by an NFL player since New Orleans’ Darren Sharper had 376 in 2009.

 

Fewell’s defense was at its best in 2011 in the Giants’ postseason run that was capped by a 21-17 victory over New England in Super Bowl XLVI. In those four victories, the Giants allowed an average of 328.0 yards, 14 points and 18.7 first downs per game - significant improvements over the regular season averages of 376.4 yards, 25 points and 21.1 first downs.

 

Each of the Giants’ four postseason opponents scored fewer points than their regular season average. The defense did not allow a point in a 24-2 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, who entered the game averaging 25.1 points per game. Green Bay scored an NFL-best 35 points a game during a 15-1 regular season, but managed only 20 in a 17-point loss to the Giants in a Divisional Playoff Game. The San Francisco 49ers averaged 23.8 points during the regular season, but scored 17 in an overtime loss to the Giants in the NFC Championship Game. The Patriots had averaged 32.1 points a game in the regular season and 34 points in their two postseason victories before Fewell’s defense shut them down in the Super Bowl.

 

In the regular season, the Giants totaled 48 sacks, which tied the Baltimore Ravens for the NFL’s second-highest total and was their highest figure since the 2007 team led the NFL with 53. Jason Pierre-Paul, then a second-year pro, had 16.5 sacks in 2011, the fourth-highest total in Giants history. He joined Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor and Michael Strahan as the only Giants with at least 16 in a season. Taylor did it once – he had 20.5 sacks in his 1986 MVP season – and Strahan did it twice (an NFL-record 22.5 sacks in 2001 and 18.5 in 2003).

 

Pierre-Paul was selected to his first Pro Bowl and was named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press. In 2012, he was again elected to his second Pro Bowl in a row, that time as a starter.

 

Fewell’s defense benefited from outstanding play from numerous veterans while getting contributions from several young players. Rolle led the Giants with 96 tackles (82 solo). He also led the team with 17 tackles (14 solo) in the postseason. Osi Umenyiora had 9.0 sacks in nine games and Justin Tuck had 5.0 despite sitting out four contests with injuries.

 

In 2010, Fewell’s first season with the team, the Giants allowed 347 points, 80 fewer than they gave up in 2009. Their opponents averaged 310.8 total yards per game, a 14-yard reduction that enabled the Giants to move from a tie for 13th to seventh in the NFL’s defensive rankings. The Giants improved from 17th to eighth in run defense (110.8 to 101.3) and 15th to ninth against the pass (214.1 to 209.5).

 

With Fewell’s defense leading the way, the Giants were first in the NFL with 39 takeaways. The Giants held their opponents to an NFL-best 31.7 success rate on third down conversion attempts (66 of 208). They allowed 263 first downs, the second-lowest total in the league (San Diego, 247). The Giants held their opponents to fewer than 100 rushing yards in nine of 16 games. They were 9-0 in those games. The Giants’ 46 sacks was the team’s highest total since the 2007 Super Bowl champions led the NFL with 53.

 

Fewell is a 28-year coaching veteran who is in his 16th season as an NFL coach.

 

Tom Coughlin reached into his past for a coach on Jan. 14, 2010 when he hired Fewell as the Giants’ defensive coordinator. Fewell once spent five seasons as Coughlin’s secondary coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

 

Prior to joining the Giants, Fewell spent four seasons as the Buffalo Bills’ defensive coordinator. He was the team’s interim head coach for the final seven games of the 2009 season. The Bills were 3-4 under his direction. Fewell was brought to Buffalo by Dick Jauron, who was Coughlin’s defensive coordinator in Jacksonville for four seasons. Fewell and Jauron spent the 1998 season together with the Jaguars.

 

Buffalo’s defense under Fewell allowed only 14 touchdown passes in each of his last two seasons with the team. In 2009, that tied for the second-best total in the NFL and was eight below the league average. The Bills were tied for fifth in the NFL with 33 takeaways. Their 28 interceptions were exceeded only by Green Bay’s 30. Buffalo’s turnover differential improved from minus-eight in 2008 to plus-three in 2009. Bills rookie safety Jairus Byrd tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions in only 14 games. The nine interceptions were five more than any other rookie had. Byrd was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury and missed the final two games but became the first Bills rookie to be selected to the Pro Bowl since Greg Bell in 1984.

 

In 2008, the Bills were fourth in the NFL in red zone defense, allowing a touchdown on only 41.8 percent of the oppositions’ possessions inside the 20-yard line (23 of 55). They were second in the AFC in negative yardage plays and held their opponents to less than 100 rushing yards seven times.

 

Fewell coached Chicago defensive backs in 2005, when the Bears led the NFC with 24 interceptions and cornerback Nathan Vasher and safety Mike Brown were selected to the Pro Bowl.

 

In 2003 and 2004, Fewell was the secondary coach of the St. Louis Rams.

 

Fewell entered the NFL as the defensive backs coach for Coughlin and the Jaguars in 1998, a position he held through the 2002 season. Jacksonville’s pass defense ranked third in the NFL in 1999 and two years later the Jaguars gave up only 13 touchdown passes.

 

Fewell was a collegiate coach for 13 years prior to entering the NFL. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of North Carolina in 1985 and 1986. Fewell was the defensive backs coach at Army in 1987. The following year, he began a four-year stint as the wide receivers coach at Kent State University. In 1992, he returned to West Point, where he spent three seasons as the defensive line coach. Fewell’s final college job was at Vanderbilt University, where he coached the secondary from 1995-97 and was also assistant head coach in his final season there.

 

Fewell was born in Gastonia, N.C. He was on the football and track teams at South Point High School in Belmont, N.C. and was inducted into the Belmont Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. Fewell lettered as a defensive back for four years at Lenoir-Rhyne College and was named the team’s most improved player in 1983. He graduated with a degree in business administration in 1985.

 

In October 2011, Fewell was inducted into the Lenoir-Rhyne College Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Gaston County, N.C. Hall of Fame in June 2012.

 

Fewell and his wife, Kathleen, have two sons.
