When Chris Palmer was hired to coach the Giants quarterbacks in 2007, the franchise wasn’t sure what it had in Eli Manning. He was an erratic young player with unfulfilled potential.
Three years later, Manning is a Super Bowl-winning, Pro Bowl quarterback. And now he’s on his own.
Palmer announced his “retirement” Friday after 20 years as an NFL coach. He is expected to soon be named the new head coach of the UFL’s New York Sentinels, who are reportedly moving to Hartford next season.
