“Steve [Tisch] and I both believe it is in the best interest of our franchise to move in another direction,” team president John Mara said in a statement. “We met with Joe yesterday 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 starts 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.

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

The Giants hired Judge prior to the 2020 season after he had spent the last eight years as a special teams coordinator and assistant on Bill Belchick’s staff in New England.

The Giants went 10-23 in Judge’s tenure, including a 4-13 2021 season that concluded with six consecutive losses.
