New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has informed the current coaching staff they are able to explore other opportunities. He is not guaranteeing them a job when he hires the new Giants head coach.

Gettleman is not messing around, as he has already fired a football executive and a football player before their season finale on Sunday. He said the Giants will not block them from finding a job elsewhere.

Some are still under contract with the team, despite Gettleman’s statement. Yet, he will work it out with the team to free themselves from their contractual obligations.

Steve Spagnuolo, the team’s interim head coach since they fired Bob McAdoo in December, was seen cleaning out his office on Monday. He does not have an interview for the head coaching job.

The 58-year-old Spagnuolo went 1-3 as the interim head coach. He guided the Giants to an 18-10 win over the Washington Redskins in the season finale.

This was his first NFL head coaching experience since the 2011 when he went 2-14 as the St. Louis Rams head coach.

Spagnuolo’s job wasn’t the only one affected by this decision. Offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan; Assistant Offensive Line Coach Lunda Wells; Offensive Line Coach Mike Solari; Quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti Jr.; Wide Receivers Coach Adam Henry; Tight Ends Coach Kevin M. Gilbride; Running Backs Coach Craig Johnson; Offensive Assistant Ryan Roeder; Secondary/Cornerbacks Coach Tim Walton; Secondary/Safeties Coach Dave Merritt; Linebackers Coach Bill McGovern; Defensive Line Coach Patrick Graham; Assistant Defensive Line Coach Rob Leonard; Defensive Assistant Bobby Blick; Special Teams Coordinator Tom Quinn, and Assistant Special Teams Coordinator Dwayne Stukes no longer have a job.

The decision could also impact Strength and Conditioning Coach Aaron Wellman, Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach Markus Paul, Performance Manager Joe Danos and Director of Performance Nutrition/Assistant Strength and Conditioning Pratik Patel.

The Giants are reportedly targeting four coaching candidates for the job: Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, and Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.
