About this speaker
Pat Flaherty is in his first season back as the Scarlet Knights' offensive line coach. A two-time Super Bowl champion with the New York Giants, Flaherty has been a position coach on five division-winning teams in the NFL and brings over two decades of experience at both the professional and collegiate levels. That includes a previous eight-year stint as offensive line coach for the Scarlet Knights (1984-91). Flaherty joins the on-field coaching staff after spending last season as a consultant for the Scarlet Knights, also serving in that role for the Giants in 2021 and as an analyst at Penn State prior (2019-20). Flaherty was the offensive line coach for the Giants for 12 seasons (2004-15), helping the offense finish in the top 10 in the NFL six times and winning two Super Bowls (XLII, XLVI). In 2015, the Giants totaled 5,952 net yards, the third-most in franchise history. Flaherty’s pass-blocking unit surrendered just 27 sacks, tied for the fourth fewest in the league. In 2012, Flaherty’s unit led the NFL with just 20 sacks allowed and the Giants scored 429 points, the second-most in franchise history.
