Joe Judge is again reaching into his coaching roots to add an assistant to his staff. The new Giants head coach is expected to hire Kevin Sherrer to work with the inside linebackers.
Sherrer comes from the University of Tennessee, where he was inside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator. The move was first reported by 247sports.com.
Judge, 38, and Sherrer, 46, worked together for Nick Saban at Alabama in 2010 and 2011. This will be the first NFL coaching assignment for Sherrer.
Also, though no official announcement has been made, Judge is bringing in Bret Bielema to coach the outside linebackers and serve as a senior assistant. Bielema, 50, worked with Judge on the Patriots the past two seasons. Bielema had a successful run as the head coach at Wisconsin, compiling a record of 68-24. He was less successful at Arkansas (29-34).
Judge previously announced the hiring of his coordinators: Jason Garrett (offense), Patrick Graham (defense) and Thomas McGaughey (special teams).
