New York Giants officially name Pat Shurmur head coach

  • Former Packers assistant coach could land with Vikings

The other candidates were Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, former Denver assistant coach Eric Studesville, Steve Spagnuolo, who was the Giants' defensive coordinator and interim head coach last season, and two assistants from the New England Patriots: Matt Patricia, the team's defensive coordinator, and Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator.

Yet Shurmur was still in the Giants' top three and was an attractive choice because of hisexperience with the Browns and his seven seasons as offensive coordinator with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings.

The move was announced on Monday, one day after the Minnesota Vikings were eliminated from the playoffs.

What's next for future NYG coach Pat Shurmur? This is a breaking news story.

In a statement on Monday, Giants president John Mara and chairman Steve Tisch praised Shurmur for his, "Outstanding track record in developing young players", which will be instrumental in the rebuilding that will occur this off-season, as the Giants come out of their worst year yet.

I feel this would be a great hire. After two seasons, he became the Cleveland Browns head coach.


The New York Giants have made several internal changes since the decision to fire head coach Ben McAdoo in early December.

The 52-year-old Shurmur replaces Ben McAdoo, who was sacked in early December with the team mired with a 2-10 record and owners and fans upset with his handling of the benching of two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning.

"I can't wait to start working with Pat", Gettleman said in the release.

Unfortunately for Shurmur, his final game overlooking the Vikings offense wasn't the best kind of impression to give the Giants.

Shurmur's offensive brilliance turned a third-string quarterback into one of the Vikings' best offensive weapons.

Giants are giving new HC Pat Shurmur a 5-year contract, per source. When Spagnuolo was sacked as head coach after the 2010 season, the Rams tried to retain Shurmur as offensive coordinator to give Bradford some continuity. Shurmur is reportedly targeting former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio as his defensive coordinator. Of course, the 52-year-old could always point out that one game, no matter how important, should not trump a season's worth of work that led him to be named assistant coach of the year by the Pro Football Writers of America.
