Sternfeld will work closely with Director of Pro Personnel Dave Gettleman in the pro scouting evaluation process. He joins the Giants after spending 21 seasons with the New England Patriots in a variety of capacities, primarily in scouting. Most recently, he served as a college scout assigned to the East Coast region.
"The appointment of Ken completes the reorganization of our player personnel department," Giants GM Ernie Accorsi said. "We are pleased to have him join us. He comes from an excellent organization and his 21 years of experience will bring more energy and new ideas to the department."
"Ken is a veteran, savvy guy that has been in this league for over 20 years," Gettleman added. "He has been a part of three Super Bowl teams and will bring a lot to the department."
Sternfeld, 41, is a New York native who attended Locust Valley High in Brookville, N.Y., before earning a business degree at Northeastern University.
The hiring of Sternfeld completes the recent restructuring of several positions in the team's front office. In addition to Reese being named director of college player personnel, Kevin Abrams was named assistant general manager and Marv Sunderland special assignment scout.
Also, Giants P Gabe Lindstrom captured NFL Europe Special Teams Player of the Week honors. He averaged 43.3 yards on four punts for Frankfurt, pinning two inside the 20-yard line. Lindstrom's punting helped limit Rhein to an average of only four yards per punt return.
