Everything you need to know about Joe Judge's coaching staff

Head Coach Joe Judge | Previous Position: New England Patriots Special Teams Coordinator/Wide Receivers Coach

Judge has been part of five championship teams in the NFL and college ranks, having coached under Bill Belichick and Nick Saban. Judge was a member of the coaching staffs who won Super Bowls XLIX, LI and LIII with the Patriots and the 2009 and 2011 BCS national championships with Alabama.

Judge, who turned 38 last week, has been coaching for 15 years, including the last eight with the New England Patriots. He was the team's assistant special teams coach for three years and special teams coordinator for four. Following the 2018 season, Judge added the duties of wide receivers coach to his responsibilities.

Under Judge's guidance in 2018, Patriots special teams played a key role in winning Super Bowl LIII. In particular, the punt coverage team repeatedly pinned the Los Angeles Rams offense deep in its own territory, forcing the Rams to start three of their drives inside their own 10-yard line.

Judge began his coaching career in 2005 as a graduate assistant at Mississippi State, where he lettered three times and was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. While at Mississippi State, Judge tutored a freshman All-SEC punter, five All-SEC linebackers and a returner who finished as the all-time SEC leader in career return yards and kickoff return yards. Judge joined the Patriots after a three-year stint at the University of Alabama as a football analyst under Saban. Judge's special teams units boasted a First-Team All-American kicker and Groza Award finalist (Leigh Tiffin, 2009), a First-Team All-American return specialist (Javier Arenas, 2009), an SEC All-Freshman team punter (Cody Mandell, 2010) and a returner who finished his career ranked second all-time in NCAA return yards (Arenas).

Judge joins a small but distinct list of NFL head coaches who cut their teeth with special teams duties: John Harbaugh (Philadelphia's special teams coordinator, 1998-2006), Marv Levy (Philadelphia's kicking teams coach, 1969; Los Angeles Rams' special teams coach, 1970; Washington's special teams coach, 1971-1972), Dick Vermeil (Los Angeles Rams' special teams coach, 1969), Mike Ditka (Dallas' special teams/receivers coach, 1973-1981), Bill Cowher (Cleveland's special teams coach, 1985-1986) and Belichick (Detroit's special teams coach, 1976; Denver's assistant special teams coach, 1978; New York Giants' special teams coach/defensive assistant, 1979-1984).

Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett | Previous Position: Dallas Cowboys Head Coach

Garrett served nine full seasons as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys from 2011-19 in addition to eight games on an interim basis in 2010. In all, he compiled a record of 85-67 in the regular season and 2-3 in the postseason. He won NFC East titles in 2014, 2016 and 2018. He was selected the NFL Coach of the Year in 2016.

Garrett played quarterback in the NFL for 12 seasons, including four with the Giants from 2000-03. He served as the primary backup to Kerry Collins during the team's run to Super Bowl XXXV. He ended his career by splitting the 2004 season with Tampa Bay and Miami. In his 12 NFL seasons, Garrett started nine of the 40 regular season games in which he played.

Garrett, who played for the Cowboys from 1993-99 and was on three Super Bowl championship teams, was the first former Dallas Cowboys player to become the team's head coach. His father, Jim, was a personnel scout for the team for 21 years and served under every Super Bowl-winning head coach and ownership regime in Cowboys history. Jim Garrett was also an assistant coach for the Giants from 1970-73 and a former high school football coach in his home state of New Jersey. Born in Rutherford, Jim Garrett was a standout fullback at Utah State and bounced around on a few professional teams, including one season with the Giants in 1956.

As a player in Dallas, Garrett learned under Jimmy Johnson, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this week. He served as a backup to Troy Aikman in offenses directed by Norv Turner and Ernie Zampese. He also played for then-Giants offensive coordinator Sean Payton, a Super Bowl-winning head coach for the Saints. Garrett finished his playing days while studying under Jon Gruden in Tampa Bay and started his coaching career with the Miami Dolphins, where he worked under Nick Saban. New Giants head coach Joe Judge also served under Saban at Alabama.

As a senior at Princeton University in 1988, Garrett was named the Ivy League's Player of the Year and honorable mention All-American. He earned his degree in history in 1989 and moved on to the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the New Orleans Saints developmental squad. After being released prior to the 1990 season, he spent the fall of 1990 as an assistant coach at Princeton. In 1991, Garrett moved on to play in the World League and the Canadian Football League before joining the Cowboys practice squad in 1992.

Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator Patrick Graham | Previous Position: Miami Dolphins Defensive Coordinator

Graham spent the 2019 season as the defensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins. He arrived in Miami with 10 years of NFL coaching experience and coached in the playoffs in eight of those seasons. He has been part of teams that won seven division titles, two conference championships and one Super Bowl (XLIX).

Graham reunites with Joe Judge, who was named the 19th head coach in Giants history last week after he spent eight seasons on Bill Belichick's coaching staff in New England. Graham coached for the Patriots from 2009-15. During that time, he served as a coaching assistant (2009), defensive assistant (2010), linebackers coach (2011, 2014-15), and defensive line coach (2012-13). In his five seasons as a position coach (2011-15), New England led the NFL in takeaways (150) and was tied for fourth in sacks (214).

Graham also returns to the Giants, for whom he coached the defensive line in the 2016 and 2017 seasons. In 2016, Graham helped the Giants become the most improved defense in the league, which propelled them to their last postseason appearance. The team allowed 158 fewer points and 1,290 fewer yards than it did in 2015. Their 17.8 points per game allowed was second in the NFL and the team's best since 2002. The Giants tied for third in the NFL in rushing yards allowed (88.6 yards per game). Defensive tackle Damon Harrison totaled 86 tackles (55 solo), the most by an NFL defensive tackle since 1996 when Buffalo's Ted Washington had 92 stops (70 solo). Harrison also earned first-team All-Pro honors.

Graham joined the New England staff following two seasons (2007-08) as a graduate assistant at Notre Dame, where he worked with the defense. He spent three seasons (2004-06) as an assistant coach at Richmond, mentoring tight ends from 2005-06 and the defensive line in 2004. Graham began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Wagner (2002-03), while he pursued an MBA with a concentration in finance. He coached the junior varsity team to an undefeated season and also served as strength and conditioning coach and academic coordinator.

Graham played collegiately at Yale, where he was a defensive lineman for the 1999 team that shared an Ivy League title with Brown. He earned his bachelor's degree in sociology with a concentration in economics and African-American studies. A native of Des Plaines, Illinois, Graham and his wife, Pamela, have two children, Morgan and Silas.

Special Teams Coordinator Thomas McGaughey | Previous Position: Retained

McGaughey just completed the second season of his second stint with the Giants. He has been the team's special teams coordinator the past two seasons. McGaughey was previously a coordinator for three other NFL teams. In 2019, the Giants finished first in the NFL in kickoff return yards (1,153), fourth in punt return average (9.8), fifth in punt return yards (274) and 10th in kickoff return average (23.5). The coverage units were just as impressive. The Giants ranked first in opponent kickoff return average (18.1) and fifth in opponent punt return average (5.7). Those numbers did not go unnoticed by Judge, a longtime special teams coach. Last season, his Patriots ranked first in average starting field position and opponent average starting field position.

In 2018, Aldrick Rosas had one of the finest seasons by a kicker in Giants history. Rosas was selected to his first Pro Bowl and was named second-team All-Pro. Rosas' .970 field goal percentage is a Giants record and was just 1/100th of a percentage point behind NFL leader Robbie Gould, a former Giant. Rosas' 127 points tied Ali Haji-Sheikh (1983) for the fifth-highest total in Giants history. The then second-year kicker hit his final 19 field goal attempts, the second-longest streak in team history. Rosas kicked the longest field goal in franchise history, a 57-yarder against Chicago in MetLife Stadium. In his first season with the Giants, punter Riley Dixon set a team record with a 41.8-yard net average on 71 punts. Michael Thomas led the Giants with nine special teams tackles (six solo) and was the NFC special teams player in the Pro Bowl.

McGaughey was the Giants' assistant special teams coach from 2007-10. The Giants won Super Bowl XLII in his first season with the team. In 2008, he helped produce the Pro Bowl battery of kicker John Carney, punter/holder Jeff Feagles, and long snapper Zak DeOssie as the Giants won the NFC East. That year, Carney set a then-team record by converting 92.1 percent (35 of 38) of his field goal attempts.

Quarterbacks Coach Jerry Schuplinski | Previous Position: Miami Dolphins Assistant Quarterbacks Coach

Schuplinski has been part of three Super Bowl winning teams (XLIX, LI and LIII) during his six seasons (2013-18) as an NFL coach with New England. His teams won four AFC titles and advanced to the conference championship in all six years. Schuplinski spent the past three seasons (2016-18) in New England as the assistant quarterbacks coach, working closely with Tom Brady.

In 2017, Schuplinski helped Brady win the league's Most Valuable Player award for the third time in his career. Brady was the NFL's leading passer, throwing for 4,577 yards. His 32 passing touchdowns and 102.8 passer rating were both third in the league. The Patriots led the NFL in total offense, averaging 394.2 yards per game, and finished second in scoring, averaging 28.6 points per game. In Schuplinski's first season as assistant quarterbacks coach in 2016, the Patriots won Super Bowl LI. Brady was named Super Bowl MVP after he passed for 466 yards and two touchdowns in a dramatic come-frombehind overtime victory against Atlanta. Patriots quarterbacks set an NFL record with 258 pass attempts to start the season without an interception. The team threw just two interceptions all season, setting an NFL record for best touchdown to interception ratio (16.0) in a single season.

Offensive Line Coach Marc Colombo | Previous Position: Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line Coach

Colombo, a former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman who started 72 of the 76 games he played during his six-year run with the club, settled into the next phase of his NFL career as an assistant coach with the Cowboys in 2015. He was named the club's assistant offensive line coach in 2016, and midway through the 2018 season, he was promoted to offensive line coach. Colombo began the 2018 in his familiar role as assistant offensive line coach, but Dallas parted ways with its line coach during the bye week, promoting Colombo to lead the group on a full-time basis.

In his first season as the assistant offensive line coach (2016), Colombo worked with a unit that forged a path for the offense to finish with the second-ranked rushing attack at 149.8 yards-per-game and the league's rushing leader (Ezekiel Elliott, 1,631 yards). The line saw three players start all 16 games (Freder- ick, Martin and Doug Free), with T. Smith, Frederick and Martin all finishing the season as first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections.

Assistant Offensive Line Coach Ben Wilkerson | Previous Position: Retained

Despite a changing cast of linemen in 2018, the offensive line helped rookie Saquon Barkley lead the NFL with 2,028 yards from scrimmage. Eli Manning also three for 21 touchdown passes against just 11 interceptions, his lowest total in 10 years.

Wilkerson started 41 games at center for LSU over the course of four seasons (2001-04), as the Tigers compiled a 33-8 record during his career. As a senior, he was a co-recipient of the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the top center in college football. During his junior season, the Tigers captured the BCS National Championship as Wilkerson started all 14 games and was one of six finalists for the Rimington Trophy

Running Backs Coach Burton Burns | Previous Position: Alabama Assistant Athletics Director

Prior to serving as the assistant athletics director for football, he served as the associate head coach and running backs coach for 11 seasons (2007-17). Over 20 seasons as a college assistant, Burns has produced versatile running backs who have been effective in every phase of the game. His players have proven to be equally effective on the ground and in the passing game. Few in college football can say they have coached a Heisman Trophy finalist, but Burns can claim a trio dating back to the 2009 season, including the 2009 recipient Mark Ingram, 2011 finalist Trent Richardson and 2015 winner Derrick Henry.

Under Burns' guidance in 2009, Ingram was awarded Alabama's first Heisman Trophy and earned unanimous All-America honors. Ingram set the school's single-season rushing record with 1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns while adding 32 receptions for 334 yards and three scores. Richardson, a true freshman, was the team's second-leading rusher (642 yards, 6 TD) and was a Freshman All-SEC selection. In the BCS National Championship Game against Texas, Ingram and Richardson both rushed for 100-plus yards to help lead Alabama to the school's 13th national title.
