EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Two-time Super Bowl winner Chris Snee is returning to the New York Giants as a senior scout in the personnel department.

General manager Joe Schoen announced the hiring Friday, along along with two promotions. Nick La Testa moved from pro scout to assistant director of pro scouting and Charles Tisch went from a football operations assistant to the manager of football administration.

Snee, a guard who was a four-time Pro Bowl pick and a member of the franchise’s Ring of Honor, will be involved in both college and pro scouting.

“I’m super excited about it,” Snee said. “I’m a Giant, and I always have been, despite having worn Jaguars clothes for four years when I scouted down there. Everyone knows my heart has always been here. This is where I feel like I belong and where I want to be, and I’m going to come in and work my tail off.”

Snee, 42, began his post-playing career in 2017 as a scout for Jacksonville, first exclusively evaluating college players before adding the pros, focusing on offensive linemen. He joined the Jaguars when Tom Coughlin – the Giants’ head coach his entire career – joined the team as an executive vice president of football operations. He is Coughlin’s son-in-law.

Snee spent the previous two years at Boston College, his alma mater, developing players and evaluating high school talent.

Snee was the Giants’ second-round draft choice in 2004, the same day the team acquired Eli Manning in a first-round trade. He started all 141 regular-season games and 11 postseason games, with the championships coming in the 2007 and ’11 seasons. Snee missed 19 games in his 10 seasons, including 13 in 2013, his last year in uniform.
