Giants hire Bicknell Jr. as assistant offensive line coach

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin picked Jack Bicknell Jr., one of his former Boston College players, as the NFL team's new assistant offensive line coach.

The appointment was announced Friday.

Bicknell was head coach at Louisiana Tech for eight years before coming to Boston College, where he served as assistant head coach and offensive line coach for the past two seasons. Coughlin succeeded Bicknell's father as coach of the Big East Conference school in 1991.

The younger Bicknell was an offensive lineman with Boston College when Coughlin served as the school's quarterback coach. He succeeds Dave DeGuglielmo, who left the Giants last week to become offensive line coach of the Miami Dolphins.
