After a one-year hiatus due to the NFL Lockout, the New York Giants have officially announced that they will return to the University at Albany for training camp in 2012. The team will report to the state capital on July 26th and remain until camp ends on August 14th.
“I think some people got worried when they won the Super Bowl that Tom Coughlin would say, ‘Well we won it, why do we need to go back?’ " Kevin Galuski, the assistant athletic director at the University at Albany said in March. “I never thought that."
Although some things are scheduled to change at UAlbany in 2012, namely the use of Field 1 which will likely be a construction site, the Giants should have no problems finding all the space they need.
“They’ll have everything they need," Galuski said.
A week after Big Blue defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, President and CEO John Mara made a promise that the team would return to Albany, where they had previously held camp since 1996.
"The University at Albany and the Capital Region has been a great summer home for us for 15 years, and we have every intention of returning there in 2012," Mara said in February.
