Are McDaniels (Offensive Quality Control Coach) and Saleh (Defensive Quality Control Coach) basically in-studies or back-ups? I see they used to be interns. Anybody know what this means?

Sounds like nothing more than a development position. In basketball we called it Director of Basketball Operations.

I have no problem with it as this is the vehicle that should be used for "young guys or former players coming out of the booth," not WR coach or Oline coach.

Basically, coaches in training and pretty much guys who do the dirty work.

my understanding had always been they were the guys who had lots to do with film...as in breaking down team tendencies etc...and then presenting that to coaches so that they could make a sound gameplan...+ as already mentioned lots of other dirty work.

You're on the right track, I think it's guys (generally without much coaching experience) that watch training camp, practice, and game film on players on the team and gives feedback to the coordinators and head coach. They are basically just an assistant to the O/D coordinators while not coaching any specific position. Interesting that Saleh is the defensive guy and I believe worked for the Texans last year on defense after playing TE in college.

If this was last season, I'd say they are going to have a lot of work to do...

Thanks everyone for the info!

From a Giants website.....probably pretty close to reality but I'm sure the "other duties as required" clause is always in effect:

Quality Control Coach: A quality control coach breaks down and analyzes tapes of an upcoming opponent, is involved in self-scouting (when a team studies its own tendencies, successes and failures) and is involved in several research projects. During the season, while most of the coaching staff is working on that week's opponent, the quality control coaches are studying the teams the Giants will play the following week or two. After studying many different cutups - down and distance, formations, all screen passes, etc., they prepare a report for the other coaches. In that sense, the quality control coaches start the process of scouting opponents. In the offseason, they study and analyze both the Giants and their opponents, breaking them down to literally hundreds of segments - runs on third-and three, shotgun passes, two tight end formations. That research tells the Giants where they - and their opponents - are both strong and weak, and where they need to focus their attention
