Early years[edit] Fewell attended South Point High School in Belmont, North Carolina. In 1979, he helped lead the school to a 3-A state football championship. College[edit] Fewell attended Lenoir-Rhyne College and was a football standout. In football, he was a four-year letterman and as a senior, he was named the team's Most Improved Player. Coaching career[edit] College[edit] Fewell was a college coach for 13 years (1985-1997), working as an assistant at North Carolina, Army, Kent State, and Vanderbilt.[1] Jacksonville Jaguars[edit] Fewell entered the NFL as the defensive backs coach for Tom Coughlin in 1998 and stayed there through 2002. Jacksonville's pass defense ranked third in the NFL in 1999 and two years later the Jaguars gave up only 13 touchdown passes.[1] St. Louis Rams[edit] In 2003, Fewell moved to St. Louis, where he was the secondary coach of the Rams. Chicago Bears[edit] Fewell was a Defensive Backs coach with Chicago from 2004–2005 under Head Coach Lovie Smith. Buffalo Bills[edit] Fewell was hired as defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills in 2006. In what was statistically their best season under Fewell, the 2008 Bills defense ranked 2nd in the AFC in negative yardage plays, recorded 7 games of holding opposing offenses to less than 100 yards rushing, finished 4th in the NFL in red zone defense (41.8%), and allowed just 14 passing TDs all year.[2] In Week 10 of the 2009 season, the Bills fired head coach Dick Jauron after a 3–6 start and Fewell was appointed interim head coach. He led Buffalo to a 3–4 finish. Following the season finale, the Bills fired their entire coaching staff, including Fewell. New York Giants[edit] On January 14, 2010, Fewell was hired as defensive coordinator of the New York Giants.[3] Fewell served under head coach Tom Coughlin, under whom Fewell previously worked during his time with the Jacksonville Jaguars. On February 5, 2012, the Giants defeated the New England Patriots 21–17 to win Super Bowl XLVI. Under his leadership, the Giants defense was often criticized for being "off and soft", allowing other teams to come back into games they should not have been able to. On January 7, 2015, the Giants and Perry Fewell parted ways after he spent five years in charge of the defense.[4] Washington Redskins[edit] Fewell served as defensive backs coach for the Washington Redskins for two seasons. Return to the Jacksonville Jaguars[edit] After Tom Coughlin returned to the Jacksonville Jaguars as the Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Fewell was brought in to act as the defensive backs coach on Doug Marrone's staff.
