BREAKING: Joe Judge has been fired as the head coach of the New York Giants

Maybe we will call it Black Tuesday for the New York Giants and Joe Judge.

Following a 4-13 season, the Giants have relieved Judge of his coaching duties.

Judge is coming off a 10-23 tenure with the Giants after two seasons. He went 6-10 and showed progress in his first season, but after a 4-13 season and losing six straight to end the 2021 season, the Giants decided to part ways with him.

The Giants are the latest team who needs a head coach, as the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears, plus the Jacksonville Jaguars, are all looking for head coaches.

The Giants will not be looking for their fourth head coach since Tom Coughlin departed after the 2015 season.
