NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and general manager Jerry Reese will be back.

And according to Newsday, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and special teams coordinator Tom Quinn will most likely be retained by the organization.

“It appears everyone on the coaching staff is coming back,” a source told the newspaper.

When asked last week if Fewell would return, Coughlin calmly told reporters, “I’m evaluating everything.” He also said that the coach had his hands full in 2014 and the players responded well to him.

It was a rough season for Fewell’s defense. New York finished ranked 29th in yards allowed and gave up 400 points for just the fifth time in franchise history.

Fewell, 52, has been the Giants’ defensive coordinator since 2010. He helped the G-Men win Super Bowl XLVI over the Patriots in 2012. Prior to joining the Giants, he served as the Bills’ defensive coordinator.

Giants president and CEO John Mara said last week that any staff changes would be decided by Coughlin.

“You don’t tell a head coach like Tom Coughlin that he has to make certain changes,” Mara said. “He knows better than we do.”

Quinn has been New York’s special teams coordinator since 2007.

Big Blue went 6-10 in 2014 and missed the playoffs for the third consecutive time.
