New York Giants assistant Tom Quinn interviews with Green Bay Packers

The New York Giants have already lost assistant defensive backs coach Deshea Townsend to the Chicago Bears, but might they also lose assistant special teams coordinator Tom Quinn?

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Green Bay Packers interviewed Quinn for their vacant special teams coordinator job earlier this week.

After Pat Shurmur took over as the team’s head coach in January, he revealed that Quinn, along with several other Ben McAdoo holdovers, had been relieved of their duties.

In Quinn’s place, Shurmur hired Thomas McGaughey, who had worked with general manager Dave Gettleman in Carolina and also served as Quinn’s assistant with the Giants from 2007-2010.

In July, after it was revealed that McGaughey had cancer and would need to undergo treatments, Shurmur re-hired Quinn as an assistant special teams coordinator.

“Tom was in town and available and is back assisting us,” Shurmur said at the time. “T-Mac (McGaughey) had some health issues, so Tom is here to assist in any way possible. Outstanding coach and was in town, so he’s here. So T-Mac is running things and will have two assistants.”

Quinn, 50, has coached special teams in various capacities since 1999. He was the Giants’ assistant special teams coordinator in 2006 before taking over as the sole special teams coordinator from 2007-2017.
