Gilbride was a member of the Giants coaching staff for 10 seasons. He was the quarterback coach from 2004 to 2006 and became the offensive coordinator in 2007. The team won two of their most recent Super Bowl championships with Gilbride as part of the staff. He is credited with getting more out of quarterback Eli Manning than any other coach or coordinator.
Gilbride retired at the end of the 2013 season. His only prior head coaching experience was with the San Diego Chargers in 1997 and 1998.
The news of his hiring was announced in a press conference in New York City.
