The New York Giants hired former wide receiver David Tyree as their director of player development, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Tyree is best known for his helmet catch during the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLII. His 32-yard reception from Eli Manning set up the Giants' game-winning touchdown to upset the previously undefeated New England Patriots in 2008.

After retiring from the NFL in 2009 without ever making another catch, Tyree was working with the league in its Player Engagement department.

The move comes one day after Giants guard Chris Snee announced his retirement from the team. Giants owner John Mara said Snee would be added to the team's Ring of Honor.
