Jerald Ingram to join XFL New York as RB Coach

Thanks to Mike Mitchell, we’re now learning that Jerald Ingram will be joining Kevin Gilbride in XFL New York as the teams Running Backs Coach.

Ingram played college football at the fullback position for the University of Michigan from 1979 to 1981 and later served as the Running Backs coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars (95–03) and New York Giants (04–13) of the National Football League.

Ingram became a football coach after his playing career at Michigan. He held assistant coaching positions at Ball State University (tight ends, 1985; running backs, 1986–1990) and Boston College (running backs, 1991–1993). In 1995, when Tom Coughlin moved from Boston College to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Ingram followed and became the Jaguars’ running backs coach from 1995 to 2003.

When Coughlin joined the New York Giants in 2004, Ingram again followed and became the Giants’ running backs coach from 2004 to 2013. In three seasons under Ingram’s tutelage, Tiki Barber emerged as a dominant running back in the NFL, gaining over 5,000 rushing yards through the 2004 and 2006 seasons. In 2008, the Giants led the NFL with 2,518 rushing yards and won Super Bowl XLII in 2008 over the previously undefeated New England Patriots. In January 2014, after the 2013 Giants finished with an offense ranked 28th in the NFL, Ingram was fired by the Giants.
