Robert Nunn
Defensive Line

Biography

Robert Nunn is in his 27th season as a football coach, his 15th in the NFL and his fifth coaching the Giants’ defensive line.


Nunn’s defensive line has consistently been one of the best and most respected in the NFL. In 2013, the linemen accounted for 27 of the Giants’ 34 sacks, including a team-high 11.0 by since-departed end Justin Tuck. Nunn quickly integrated into the unit veteran free agent tackle Cullen Jenkins, who started 15 games. He also compensated for the loss of two-time Pro Bowl end Jason Pierre-Paul, whose season was cut short by a shoulder injury. Mathias Kiwanuka stepped in and finished with 6.0 sacks, his highest total since 2008.


In 2012, the defensive line accounted for 23.5 of the team’s 33 sacks (not counting 3.0 by Kiwanuka, who was listed as a linebacker, but frequently played up front). Pierre-Paul led the Giants in sacks for the second year in a row with 6.5 and was a starter on the NFC Pro Bowl team, his second selection to the game. Defensive tackle Linval Joseph was fifth on the team with 72 tackles (39 solo) and had a career-high 4.0 sacks.


In 2011, the line had 41.5 of the Giants’ 48 sacks, which tied for the league’s second-highest total (not counting 3.5 by Kiwanuka).


Pierre-Paul had a dominating sophomore NFL season, finishing with 16.5 sacks, 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 sacks in a season. Pierre-Paul was selected to his first Pro Bowl and was named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press. He was twice named NFC Defensive Player of the Week in December – when he was also named NFC Defensive Player of the Month.


Osi Umenyiora was second on the team with 9.0 sacks despite missing seven games because of preseason knee surgery and an ankle injury suffered on Nov. 28 in New Orleans. Umenyiora and Tuck tied for the Giants’ postseason sack lead with 3.5 apiece. Tuck had both of the Giants’ sacks of Tom Brady in the Giants’ victory over New England in Super Bowl XLVI.


Nunn also helped develop a sturdy tandem of tackles in Chris Canty and Joseph, who improved rapidly in his second pro season.


In 2010, the defensive line played at a high level throughout the season and helped the Giants finish seventh in the NFL in total defense and eighth against the run. The Giants were second in the NFC and fifth in the NFL with 46 sacks, led the league with 39 takeaways and the line was responsible for 21 of the team’s 29 forced fumbles.


Umenyiora and Tuck, a 2010 Pro Bowler, tied for fourth in the NFC and seventh in the NFL – and the team lead – with 11.5 sacks each, the first time the Giants had two players with at least that many sacks since 2005, when Umenyiora had 14.5 and Strahan finished with 11.5.


Umenyiora and Tuck each had three sacks on Oct. 3, when the Giants totaled 10 in a 17-3 victory over Chicago. It was Umenyiora’s highest total in one game since he set a team record with six sacks against the Eagles when the team had 12 on Sept. 30, 2007. Tuck set a career high with his three sacks.


Umenyiora led the Giants and tied an NFL record with 10 forced fumbles, tying Jason Taylor's record set in 2006 with Miami. The stat has been kept since 1994. Tuck was first in the league with five recoveries of opponent fumbles.


Defensive tackle Barry Cofield had 68 tackles (36 solo, six for losses) and a career-high 4.0 sacks.


Pierre-Paul, a first-round draft choice in 2010, finished the season with 4.5 sacks, the most by a Giants rookie since Cornelius Griffin had 5.0 in 2000. Pierre-Paul had two sacks vs. Jacksonville on Nov. 28 and two against Washington the following week to become the first rookie in Giants history with at least two sacks in consecutive games.


Nunn was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defensive line coach in 2009. Prior to his season with the Bucs, Nunn spent four years (2005-08) coaching the Green Bay Packers’ defensive tackles. In 2008, Nunn oversaw a deep and talented rotation on the interior of the Packers defensive line. Two of Nunn’s players, Johnny Jolly and Ryan Pickett, ranked in the top five in tackles among Green Bay defenders that season. Jolly set a new career high with 82 stops. Pickett, who joined the Packers as a free agent acquisition in 2006, thrived under Nunn as he tallied 236 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 13 passes defensed the past three seasons. Nunn’s guidance also contributed to the emergence of Corey Williams in 2006, when the then third-year pro turned in his best season with 47 tackles and seven sacks.


In 2005, Nunn helped elevate the Packers’ defense from 25th in the NFL before his arrival to seventh in the league. Under Nunn’s direction, Grady Jackson started all 16 games for only the second time as a pro and responded with career bests in tackles (72) and passes defensed (four).


Nunn entered the NFL as a defensive assistant with the Miami Dolphins in 2000. The following year, he was promoted to assistant defensive line/quality control coach. He held that role for two years (2001-02), during which time he worked with Pro Bowler Jason Taylor.


In 2003, Nunn coached the Washington Redskins’ defensive line. One of his players was Bruce Smith, who broke the late Reggie White’s NFL career sacks record. Nunn also tutored veteran standouts Renaldo Wynn and Regan Upshaw.


Nunn returned to Miami in 2004 as a special assistant. He began the year working on off-the-field projects and then assisted with the linebackers after Coach Dave Wannstedt resigned with seven games left in the season.


Nunn’s 12-year college coaching experience was highlighted by nine years at Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga. After one season as defensive coordinator, the school promoted him to head coach and athletic director in 1992. In his eight seasons holding that position, Nunn posted an outstanding 66-19 record.


He launched his coaching career at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College in 1988, heading up the defensive line. He then tutored defensive ends at the University of Tennessee for two seasons (1989-90).


A four-year letterman (1984-87) as a linebacker at Oklahoma State University, Nunn served as team captain in 1987. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in secondary education from the school in 1988.


Nunn and his wife, Karen, have five children: a daughter, Josie, and four sons, Noah, Jacob, Nathan and Johnny.
