Giants Promote Pair Of Coaches, According To Report

Tom Coughlin has made two promotions to his coaching staff, shuffling wide receivers coach Sean Ryan to quarterbacks coach and moving offensive assistant Kevin Gilbride, Jr. into the wide receivers coach role, according to a report in The Star-Ledger.

The move will likely mitigate some of the uproar created after Coughlin denied Gilbride, Jr. the opportunity to interview for an assistant coaching job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this offseason.

Gilbride, Jr. is the son of Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, and is considered a bright young mind in the NFL coaching ranks. He previously coached wide receivers during his time on the Temple football staff.

Ryan assumes the vacancy created by Mike Sullivan's departure to become Greg Schiano's offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay, and he too has coaching experience with quarterbacks at the collegiate level. 2012 will be his sixth season with the Giants.
