Mike Pope is the tight end coach for the New York Giants of the National Football League, serving on all of their four Super Bowl Championship teams.


Pope's coaching skills have been attributed as a reason for the success of New York Giants tight ends Jeremy Shockey, Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard. Following the 2012 NFL Draft, Pope's next project is fourth-round draft choice Adrien Robinson.[1][2]

The 2012 NFL season will be the 30th consecutive year that Pope has coached in the NFL and his 22nd year with the Giants, covering two separate periods from 1983 to 1991, then from 2000 on. Pope's personal connection to the Giants can be seen in the choice of name for one of his grandsons, Wellington, named for Giants late owner Wellington Mara.[2]
