One name to keep in mind for the New York Giants’ vacant special teams coordinator position is Larry Izzo.
ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reports that the Giants are interested in a potential reunion but may have to wait until the situation in Seattle settles itself.
As Jordan says, Izzo is on the radar for STC. My sense is the situation in Seattle with head coach needs to take shape. Daboll and Izzo were together in New England for six years, the former as a young assistant coach and Izzo back in his playing days. https://t.co/PLrRP4aVFz

As we noted last week in a list of possible candidates, Izzo was a former special team ace as a player who has become one of the more respected coaches in the NFL.
Izzo was the Giants’ special teams assistant for the Giants under Tom Quinn from 2011-15 and has a Super Bowl ring as a result.
Izzo has been the Seattle Seahawks’ special teams coordinator since 2021 and is still under contract for the time being. He would be a great get if general manager Joe Schoen can work some magic.
As stated, Izzo and Brian Daboll have a history working together and a reunion is not out of the question. The Seahawks recently moved on from long-time head coach Pete Carroll and it is uncertain if they will retain Izzo.
