Robert Nunn, who won a Super Bowl ring as the New York Giants’ defensive line coach under Tom Coughlin in 2012, has been hired to Shawn Clark’s staff at FBS powerhouse Appalachian State.
Nunn has spent the last 19 seasons of his coaching career in the NFL. The Oklahoma native has served as a line coach at that level with the New York Jets (2017-18), Cleveland Browns (2016), New York Giants (2010-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2009) and Washington Redskins (2003). He was also the defensive tackles coach for the Green Bay Packers (2005-08). From 2000-02 he was the assistant line coach for the Miami Dolphins, then spent the 2004 season as a special assistant coach for that same organization.
Nunn stated he has long followed the ASU program and appears to be a natural fit for them.
“Ever since I started following App State Football in the summer of 1997, I’ve been up to visit 15 or 20 times and I just love Boone,” Nunn said in a statement. “From watching Coach (Jerry) Moore, I was always impressed by how well the Mountaineers were coached. It’s a great program that I’ve been attached to for a while, and I’m excited to join the staff and get started.”
Nunn spent six years with the Giants from 2010-2015.
