Joe Judge is done.
Josina Anderson reports that the Giants are firing head coach Joe Judge on Tuesday.
The Giants have confirmed the news:
“Steve (Tisch) and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction,” said team president John Mara. “We met with Joe yesterday afternoon to discuss the state of the team. I met again with Joe this afternoon, and it was during that conversation I informed Joe of our decision. We appreciate Joe’s efforts on behalf of the organization.
“I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season. Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision.
“We will hire a general manager and that person will lead the effort to hire a new head coach.”
Reports from over the weekend indicated that Judge’s job may have been safe, but clearly things changed quickly.
Ian Rapoport reports that Giants owners met with Judge for two days before making the decision to move on.
In two seasons, Judge has a record of 10-23 so far (30.3 percent) and no playoff appearances.
