Jim Fassel was named the 15th head coach in Giants history on January 15, 1997. That year, Fassel led his squad to a 10-5-1 record and a berth in the playoffs while capturing the NFC Eastern Division title. Fassel was named Coach of the Year by 11 media outlets, including The Sporting News, after helping the Giants improve from a 6-10 record and a last place finish in the NFC East in 1996.
Under Fassel's guidance, the Giants became the fifteenth team in NFL history to finish in first place in their division the season after finishing in last place. The worst-to-first turnaround has occurred 13 times, including the 1997 Giants, since the 1970 merger. Fassel's group finished with a 7-0-1 Division record and became the first team ever to go undefeated in NFC Eastern Division play. The 1997 season marked Fassel's return to the Giants organization. He entered the NFL as an assistant coach with the Giants in 1991 as quarterbacks coach, then as offensive coordinator in 1992.
Following his service with the Giants, Jim Fassel spent two campaigns as assistant head coach/offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos in 1993 and 1994. He spent the 1995 season as quarterbacks coach for the Oakland Raiders and was the offensive coordinator and the quarterbacks coach for the Arizona Cardinals in 1996. Under Fassel's guidance, Broncos quarterback John Elway enjoyed his finest season as a pro in 1993, earning honors that included the American Football Conference player of the year and most valuable player. "You've got to have a belief in yourself," Jim Fassel says. "You've got to have a belief in your team. You've got to have a determination. You've got to work at it, and you've got to push through the tough times. All our guys are on the same page. And if you put all those ingredients together, which is the hardest part, you can dream that dream." Let Coach Jim Fassel inspire your team and show them the way to success!
FASSEL: FIRST STRING, NOT FIRST WIN, IS THE KEY

But that chance is not enough to make Giants coach Jim Fassel waver from his plan. His starters will play about a quarter against the Baltimore Ravens at Giants Stadium. And after they come out they will not go back in, even if the game is on the line ...
