Lansdale Catholic Grad Joe Judge Is New York Giants’ New Head Coach
Joe Judge, a graduate of Lansdale Catholic High School and New England Patriots wide receivers coach, has been hired by the New York Giants as the team’s new head coach, writes EJ Smith for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 38-year-old Judge spent eight years with the Patriots, starting as a special teams assistant and was promoted to special teams coordinator five years ago. Last season, he was the team’s wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator.
Before Patriots, Judge worked for three years as a football analyst for Alabama, studying under der Nick Saban. He got his coaching start in 2005 with the Bulldogs as a graduate assistant.
Now in addition to his coaching duties, Judge is working on obtaining his Ph.D. in education.
News of Judge’s hiring came less than an hour after former Temple coach Matt Rhule was due to interview with the Giants. However he instead accepted the position of head coach for the Carolina Panthers.
The head coach position came available at the end of the regular season after Giants fired Pat Shurmur, the former Eagles offensive coordinator.
