EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Kevin Gilbride has retired as offensive coordinator for the New York Giants.
The 62-year-old Gilbride, a veteran of 39 years in coaching, says Thursday he wants to devote more time to his family.
He spent the last decade with the Giants, winning two Super Bowls, but was under pressure this season for New York's inconsistent performance on offense. With injuries to the offensive line and at running back, the Giants scored 294 points, the lowest total of the Tom Coughlin era. They finished 28th in the NFL in total yards (307.5 a game), 29th in yards rushing per game (83.3) and 30th in yards per carry (3.5). Eli Manning threw a career-high and franchise-record 27 interceptions against 18 touchdown passes.
Gilbride was quarterbacks coach in his first three seasons with the Giants, helping in Manning's development.
