The New York Giants have seen enough of Joe Judge. It was enough that the team owners have decided to move on from their inexperienced head coach.

The young coach was out-coached many times during the last two seasons. The Tisch and Mara families saw enough when Judge called for back-to-back quarterback sneaks against the Washington Football Team in the final game of the season at MetLife Stadium.

The final quarterback sneak came on a 3rd and 9 with five minutes left in the second quarter. The broadcasters were surprised by Judge’s calls. Judge was able to survive Black Monday. However, he was not able to survive the pink slip overall before his departure.

“Steve and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction,” Mara said. “We met with Joe [Monday] afternoon to discuss the state of the team. I met again with Joe this afternoon, and it was during that conversation I informed Joe of our decision. We appreciate Joe’s efforts on behalf of the organization.

“I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season. Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision.’’

Judge was 10-23 as the Giants head coach. In his final campaign, he went 4-13.

Before becoming the Giants head coach, Judge had no prior head coaching experience. He had no coordinator experience either.

He was the Patriots’ special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach before being hired by the Giants.

“We will hire a general manager and that person will lead the effort to hire a new head coach,” Mara said.
