New York Giants Fire Defensive Line Coach

Pro Football NYCSenior Writer IJanuary 6, 2010

The bloodletting continued today for the reeling New York Giants, who announced that veteran defensive line coach Mike Waufle has been fired.

Waufle has been the team's d-line coach since 2004, when Tom Coughlin took the reins as head coach.

During his tenure, the Giants' defensive line became one of the NFL's most productive, spurred by the likes of Pro Bowlers Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, and future Hall-of-Famer Michael Strahan.

It was the decrease in sack production, though, that led to Waufle's firing.  The Giants only had 32 sacks this season, as opposed to 53 in 2007 when they were Super Bowl champions.
