The New York Giants didn’t waste any time filling their vacant Defensive Coordinator position. With Steve Spagnuolo leaving to become the next head coach of the St. Louis Rams, the Giants easily filled in the space by hiring within. Linebackers coach Bill Sheridan, who reads this website, will take over a defense that had a strong season despite the losses of Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora.
My father, Mike Tracy, who is a Defensive Coordinator at Hamilton College, has coached with Bill Sheridan at a charity camp for high school football players throughout the past few summers. I was lucky enough to tag along and meet Sheridan several times along the way, and he’s a very nice and professional man to talk to. Each time I see him, including in this photo just before his team was about to play the biggest game of the season, he always has enough time to step aside to talk to my father and I and ask how my website is going, how Hamilton football did, etc.
The Giants chose the right man for the job, and I think it will show next season.
