New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride will announce his retirement soon, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reported Thursday.
With Gilbride's retirement, speculation will turn toward Mike Sullivan, who was offensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a former Giants receivers and quarterbacks coach.
There had been wide speculation about Gilbride's job security. His offense sputtered to a 28th-place finish in 2013.
The Giants went 7-9 this season after starting 0-6.
Following the conclusion of the season, co-owner John Mara said changes would be coming after an "offensive failure."
"I think our offense is broken right now and we need to fix that, and we need to make some improvements on defense, too," Mara said Monday. "But, obviously, the offensive side of the ball, we've got to improve there and we can't go into next season with the same personnel."
Head coach Tom Coughlin he would like to continue to coach.
"I expressed to Tom this morning that we do want him back as our head coach," Mara said Monday.
Coughlin, 67, would be entering the final year of his contract in 2014.
