The New York Giants are reportedly hiring former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly as their tight ends coach.
The news comes from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Kelly comes over from Tennessee after spending the last two seasons there, first serving as passing-game coordinator in 2022 and then offensive coordinator in 2023.
Tennessee’s offense was not good on Kelly’s watch last season, with the unit finishing No. 29 in passing, No. 17 in rushing and No. 27 in scoring.
However, the Titans also sported one of the worst offensive lines in the sport that hindered their rushing and passing attacks more often than not.
Despite that, the Titans still had a 1,000-yard rusher in Derrick Henry and saw an impressive showing out of rookie quarterback Will Levis, which was no doubt the biggest bright spot on that side of the ball for Tennessee.
Kelly also had a hand in the development of 2022 fourth-round pick and tight end, Chig Okonkwo, who has developed into a solid young tight end over two seasons.
This is the second former Titans coach the Giants have reportedly hired. Big Blue is also reportedly hiring former Tennessee defensive coordinator Shane Bowen to the same role.
