Flaherty, who was hired by Tom Coughlin as the offensive line coach on Jan. 26, 2004, was recently diagnosed with cancer. He has begun treatment while continuing to coach the line. Ruel will work with Flaherty and assistant offensive line coach/quality control coach Dave DeGuglielmo.
"I will continue to coach the Giants offensive line as long as my treatment makes that possible," Flaherty said. "I feel good and I look forward to coaching this season as I do every season."
