Giants Super Bowl 2012 Nets Perry Fewell First Championship

Just a hair over two years ago today, New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell was just weeks removed from landing his current job following a seven-game stint as the interim head coach of the Buffalo Bills. He received an obligatory - and perfunctory - interview with new GM Buddy Nix for the full-time gig, but as that interview came after a report that the entire coaching staff had been fired, the discussion was clearly only a formality.

Today, Perry Fewell is part of a Giants team that won Super Bowl XLVI last evening, defeating the New England Patriots 21-17.

Fewell went 3-4 in his short stint as Buffalo's head coach, and in the past two seasons with the Giants has coached an obviously talented defense to No. 7 and - perhaps surprisingly to some - No. 27 finishes. That's right, folks: Perry Fewell's No. 27-ranked defense stymied Tom Brady last night.

Another former Bills assistant has his second Super Bowl title, as well, as Kevin Gilbride - who served as the Bills' offensive coordinator under then-head coach Gregg Williams - won his second in four years with the Giants and Tom Coughlin.
