The New York Giants have found their next head coach.

Patriots special teams coordinator Joe Judge will be the next head coach in New York, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the deal has been in the works since Monday night.

Judge, who just turned 38 in December, has been in the Patriots organization since 2012. He was promoted to special teams coordinator in 2015, and also became the team's wide receiver coach in 2019. Judge was given the opportunity to be the head coach of Mississippi State, his alma mater, according to Rapoport, but chose the Giants job instead.

Former Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was expected to be in the running for the Giants head coaching job, but the team opted to go with Judge instead. ESPN's Ed Werder reported that the Giants are still interested in bringing in Garrett as their offensive coordinator.

With the Giants hiring Judge and the Panthers reportedly inking former Baylor head coach Matt Rhule to a seven-year contract, the Cleveland Browns remain the only team without a head coach.
