Among the shakeup this offseason former director of football operations Chris Pridy is now an assistant equipment manager. Pridy was a trusty and well-regarded assistant to previous head coaches dating back to Tom Coughlin.
I was hoping it said Chris Mara

Sounds like quite a drop, doesn't it?
The scary part is

Was he good enough to the the asst director??
That's  
Jon in NYC : 6/26/2020 10:53 am : link
like going from COO to Janitor. Jeez.
That usually means they didn't want the bad press of firing him.....  
GiantBlue : 6/26/2020 10:55 am : link
and hope he resigns because of the precipitous drop in title and responsibilities.

Bring back Joe Skiba!  
FranknWeezer : 6/26/2020 11:05 am : link
Anyone know what he's up to these days? (seriously)
Wait  
GManinDC : 6/26/2020 11:07 am : link
He's not even the equipment manager. he's the assistant equipment manager!!!. That's next to towel boy and sideline wire holder

Whats worse is he was DIRECTOR of FBO and now only an ASSISTANT Equipment Manager. Hes not event the head ball boy!
i'm surprised they didn't make him cleaner of the bathrooms  
GiantsFan84 : 6/26/2020 11:10 am : link
that sounds like an incredible demotion
I knew this losing  
Pete in MD : 6/26/2020 11:19 am : link
was Chris Pridy’s fault the whole time!

It sounds like it's from the Onion.
Either this is one heck of a demotion  
Biteymax22 : 6/26/2020 11:50 am : link
Or they pay assistant equipment managers way better than I thought....
Just thinking of another reason for this.  
robbieballs2003 : 6/26/2020 12:00 pm : link
If they didn't want him they wouldn't keep him. Maybe he has some health issues that he cannot fulfill his normal obligations and this is a way to keep him on payroll to still get health insurance?
I heard  
Dukie Dimes : 6/26/2020 12:05 pm : link
That he was assistant TO the director of football operations. So it’s actually a step up to become an assistant equipment manager. 😜

Right Robbie.

Maybe he asked to change for personal reasons and wanted or needed to cut back.
Wrong  
Joey in VA : 6/26/2020 12:11 pm : link
He was the director of football ADMINISTRATION, not operations, big big big difference.
Giants.com and google both say  
glowrider : 6/26/2020 12:12 pm : link
Director of Football ADMINISTRATION

Ed Triggs is DFO
FWIW  
giants#1 : 6/26/2020 12:12 pm : link
Giants.com has (had) Pridy as Director of Football Administration not Operations. I don't know the specifics of either post, but "administration" sounds more along the lines of logistics, which would be similar to Asst Equipment Mgr.
or what the above two posters  
giants#1 : 6/26/2020 12:13 pm : link
pointed out.
Sounds like a big downgrade  
eric2425ny : 6/26/2020 12:18 pm : link
Maybe they will downgrade Fredo to Chief Urinal Cake Inspector
BTW, if you google  
Pete in MD : 6/26/2020 12:18 pm : link
him, Giants.com still has an old page active that shows his former title was Director of Football Administration, not Operations.
Wow,  
Pete in MD : 6/26/2020 12:20 pm : link
what everyone else just said. I guess I should read the thread next time.
For some reason, when I read this I thought of Nicky yelling  
mfsd : 6/26/2020 12:26 pm : link
at Ace Rothstein in the desert “you could have had the food and beverage job without going on TV!”
Glad..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/26/2020 1:01 pm : link
to see that posters have learned not to jump to conclusions after continually being shown to look like asswipes before getting facts correct.
I agree  
GManinDC : 6/26/2020 1:10 pm : link
That Bubba Wallace thread was a train wreck
Does the assistant  
XBRONX : 6/26/2020 1:20 pm : link
equipment manager make sure every player puts on the right numbered jersey?

You mean the one where people were certain that a noose was made to menace Wallace even though it had been there since last year?

Yep, that one  
GManinDC : 6/26/2020 1:32 pm : link
Where it changed from a menacing act (wrong) to many stalls have the same type a rope (wrong)..to a slight over reaction
Anyway  
GManinDC : 6/26/2020 1:47 pm : link
This is a non story
Maybe he's better at signing players' names to jerseys and helmets

Can he

Quite the shake up.

Assistant equipment manager apparently....
Out of curiosity, did Skiba survive the Eli equipment scandal?
Doesn't Adam Sandler have that job?

This guy is actually our Ernie Adams.

Unemployment...  
retiredmz : 6/27/2020 11:57 am : link
...would have been better than this demotion....Especially in NJ $713 + $600 through the end of July :)....
Just a couple years ago he was listed as "coaching assistant"  
BigBlueDogFish : 6/27/2020 12:33 pm : link
It might not be as much of a demotion as we think, just shuffling with all of Judge's new guys.
In addition to Lunda Wells (TEs) and Bill McGovern (LBs), Craig Johnson (RBs) and Chris Pridy (coaching asset) also expected to return for Giants, per source. Could be others as well. - ( New Window )
In a tribute to the “office”  
thrunthrublue : 6/27/2020 10:38 pm : link
I believe his official title is assistant TO the equipment manager.
