New York Giants fire OL coach Marc Colombo following verbal confrontation

The New York Giants fired offensive line coach Marc Colombo on Wednesday following a verbal confrontation with head coach Joe Judge. He has been replaced with NFL assistant Dave DeGuglielmo.

“We appreciate what Marc has done, but I felt like this move is in the best interest of the team.

-Joe Judge said in statement released Wednesday

Colombo did not agree with the decision to replace him with DeGuglielmo, according to ESPN.

The altercation was completely verbal; a Giants spokesperson said the claim of a physical alteration as absolutely false in every way.

The firing of Colombo is a surprise as the Giants offensive line has been improving; Judge has also played a larger role in the offensive line.

The team is on a bye this week and will return Nov. 29 in Cincinnati.
