New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin: 'The culture is going to change'


After the year they had in 2013, the New York Giants needed to undergo some drastic changes in the offseason, and they did. There are some new players–as is always the case in the offseason–as well as some new coaches.

Recently, head coach Tom Coughlin addressed the changes made, and he pointed out that it’s not just the personnel in the building that was changing, but the culture as well.

“The culture’s going to change, too,’’ Tom Coughlin said in an interview on giants.com. “Now, the principles and the values will not change, but how we go about our business has to change, because we have so many new people that have to be integrated into the system.

Last season was not the typical year that you would expect from the Giants, so the all-around changes were definitely in order. If anything, Coughlin seems to be most concerned with the integration of the Ben McAdoo offense.

“I’m concerned about the X’s and O’s. That whole situation in terms of the new system and our new offensive coordinator [Ben McAdoo], those things are all going to have to be presented to our team, both veterans and new people. It puts them basically in the same boat, because they’re all learning from scratch, there’s no advantage to anybody.

Given how they performed last season, it’ll be interesting to see how all the new changes end up coming together in 2014, especially in the highly competitive NFC East.
