The Giants reportedly had an opportunity to match or beat the Panthers offer to Matt Rhule, but they declined. Joe Judge was one of seven candidates mentioned for the Giants head coaching job, and at 38 years old he was the youngest of the candidates. Judge has been mentored by the likes of Alabama’s Nick Saban, and Patriots’ Bill Belichick.
