The Atlantic’s Nate Taylor reports Madison is being considered for new Chiefs defensive coordinator’s Steve Spagnuolo’s staff as a secondary coach. Spagnuolo and Madison are familiar with each other from their respective tenures with the Giants. They were with the team during the 2007 season that ended in victory in Super Bowl XLII.
Madison most recently coached at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale alongside his former Miami Dolphins teammate and Hall of Fame defensive end Jason Taylor. Both Madison and Taylor have sons on the team.
Madison began his coaching odyssey on former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin’s staff in 2013.
“Sam wants to coach,” Coughlin said in a 2013 interview. “For us, I think it’s a win-win situation. We can help him in regard to giving him a chance to coach and be with us and for people to observe that he’s good coaching at this level.
“Sam is good medicine. Sam was liked as a player when he was here with us. He was working and coaching and did a nice job in that capacity. He did a good job with all the young corners then and the guys seem to respond and like the fact that he is here now.”
Madison was selected by the Dolphins with the 44th overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft out of Louisville. He spent nine seasons in Miami (1997-2005) before signing with the Giants as a free agent in 2006. Madison spent three seasons with the Giants (2006-08). He officially retired as a member of the Dolphins in 2017.
Madison was selected to four Pro Bowls (1999-2002) and was a two-time First-team All Pro (1999, 2000). He co-led the NFL in interceptions in 1999 with 7. For his career, Madison had 471 combined tackles (377 solo), two sacks, 10 forced fumbles, six fumbles recovered, 38 interceptions, 103 passes defended, and two touchdowns.
