David Tyree, who made one of the greatest catches in NFL history to help propel the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XLII, has returned to the organization as its new Director of Player Development.
Tyree, 34, replaces Charles Way, who earlier this month was named the head of the NFL’s Player Engagement Department. Way, a Giants fullback from 1995-99, had headed the team’s player development efforts since 2000.
“I’m overwhelmed with joy,” said Tyree, who played for the Giants from 2003-08. “I guess you could say it’s a second homecoming. I’m grateful to have an experience with Charles Way, seeing his growth, his maturity as a professional. It even, to some degree, has impacted my life personally as a professional. Then having this opportunity to fill those shoes, I’m just grateful for the foundation that’s been laid, I’m grateful to be an example and hopefully represent this great organization in the same light and continue the great atmosphere and tradition of a wonderful organization with a premier culture. I’m just thrilled to get in here and serve these players.”
Tyree spent the previous two years working in player engagement and development in the NFL office.
