The recipient of a bachelor’s degree in business from Tulane University, Geoffrey “Geoff” J. Block draws upon his extensive Wall Street experience to oversee investments through his holding company RLB Squared, LLC. Apart from his professional pursuits, Geoff Block is a fan of the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL).
After a second consecutive losing season under head coach Pat Shurmur, the Giants parted ways with the 54-year-old Ann Arbor, Michigan native on December 30. Eight days later, the team hired Joe Judge as its new head coach. He will be the team’s fifth head coach in six years and its 19th in franchise history.
Prior to signing Judge, the Giants were believed to be interested in Matt Rhule, but he was signed by the Carolina Panthers to a seven-year, $62 million contract before a supposed sit-down meeting with New York. However, according to a source in the New York Post, the Giants were “blown away” by their meeting with Judge.
Although the 38 year old has never served as a head coach in the NFL, he has been a part of some impressive coaching staffs. Judge most recently served as wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator with the New England Patriots, where he worked alongside Bill Belichick and often met with the esteemed head coach in preparation for a larger role elsewhere. He won three Super Bowls in New England and was part of two championship-winning teams in his three seasons at the University of Alabama.
