Giants News: New York Makes Spagnuolo Highest-Paid D-Coordinator

RealFootball365.comSenior Writer IFebruary 9, 2008

After interviewing with the Washington Redskins last week, Steve Spagnuolo has removed himself from consideration for that head-coaching job in favor of becoming the highest-paid defensive coordinator in the league.

Spagnuolo signed a three-year, $6 million deal to remain with the New York Giants.

Commentary: Spagnuolo told reporters he appreciated Redskins owner Daniel Snyder giving him an interview. "I was happy to have the opportunity to explore that situation," Spagnuolo said, "but I am equally happy to be staying in New York and look forward to continued success with the Giants."

Fantasy Football Impact: This means the Giants' defense, which ranked seventh in the NFL last season, should remain a power—even if Michael Strahan retires.
