Joe Judge probably didn’t expect to be relieved of his role as head coach of the New York Giants after just two seasons. Owners were reluctant to make another head coach change after brief stints from Ben McAdoo and Pat Shurmur in that role as well. But a 4-13 season that was capped with a six-game losing streak in double digits sent the Giants back on the drawing board again.
Despite the abrupt end of his tenure with the Giants, Judge is still grateful for the experience in New York.
In a statement released to Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com, the judge thanked the Giants property, its coaching staff, players and fans for their support over the past two seasons.
“As I reflect on my tenure with the Giants, I want to express how grateful I am to have the opportunity to be the head coach of the New York Giants. Thank you to the Mara and Tisch families, the organization and incredible support staff and the fans – proud and loyal fans who rival any fan base in the sport with their passion and dedication. It has been a privilege to represent these people for the past two years. Thank you for coming week after week to support our team.
The judge thanked his coaching staff for the work they have done alongside him over the past two seasons. He also thanked the former Giants and the players he has coached in New York over the past two years for their efforts and support.
“On behalf of myself and my family, we leave New York with the greatest gratitude to the community, the organization, the people and the team. Thank you, ”said the judge.
