It’s been a week of significant change for the New York Giants.

General manager Dave Gettleman has retired, head coach Joe Judge has been fired and several executives and coaches have begun to depart.

Offensive line coach Rob Sale took off for Florida, college scouting director Chad Klunder is headed to Duke and now defensive line coach Sean Spencer is exiting stage left as well.

Like Klunder, Spencer will now call Duke University home. He is expected to take over as the co-defensive coordinator.

Spencer — also known as “Coach Chaos” — was originally hired by the Giants in January of 2020. He was a fallback option after they missed out on Freddie Roach (who ended up at Alabama).

Before joining the Giants, Spencer had spent the six years at Penn State coaching the defensive line under James Franklin, whom he had worked with previously while at Vanderbilt (2011-2013). Prior to that, he had made stops Bowling Green, Massachusetts, Hofstra and Villanova, among others.

The Giants were Spencer’s first NFL opportunity.
