Gilbride and Ingram worked together from 2004 to 2013 with the New York Giants, in which they helped led the Giants to two Super Bowl victories, one of which is considered the greatest upset in Super Bowl history when they beat the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
Ingram started his coaching career as a graduate assistant in 1984 after playing for Michigan as fullback under Bo Schembechler from 1979 to 1981. He then went to Ball State University and coached tight ends and running backs from 1986 to 1990 and finished his collegiate career with Boston College coaching running backs in 1993. His first NFL job came in ’95 when he followed Tom Coughlin as he went from Boston College to be head coach for the new NFL expansion team Jacksonville Jaguars, Ingram would be his running backs coach. Then in 2004 after Coughlin was let go from Jacksonville Ingram went to be his running backs coach for the New York Giants.
Altogether Ingram has coached many players to have great NFL careers, his most notable achievement is developing running back Tiki Barber into one of the best in his last final seasons. Barber rushed for over 5,000 yards in 2004 through 2006 with a total of 27 touchdowns and 9 fumbles while only losing 4. For those 3 years Barber would be an All-Pro. Other notable names are; Fred Taylor, Ahmad Bradshaw, James Stewart and Brandon Jacobs.
Many fans are excited to see all the moves the league is making and Jerald Ingram has a unique skill and style that he brings with him to the XFL and I for one am very anxious to see what he brings to the New York franchise.
