Giants expected to hire Pat Shurmur as head coach

CLEVELAND OH – SEPTEMBER 9 Head coach Pat Shurmur with Quarterback Brandon Weeden

Shurmur, 52, has the head coaching experience Big Blue is looking for, but his overall record is unlikely to make Giants fans giddy. Or if he was going to accept it.

Pat Shurmur is expected to be the next Giants head coach. Minnesota, winners of the NFC North, is an NFC finalist, earning a pulse-pounding 29-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints in yesterday's Divisional playoff round.

Shurmur, Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels were reportedly the top three choices for the Giants.

He knows all the players, he knows all the teams, he asks me different things about the French competition, or other things... He said: "Every game I try to make the best decision for the team and it was right to make this decision".

NY can not offer Shurmur an official deal until Minnesota's season ends.

NY had also interviewed Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, former Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels along with Shurmur, Spagnuolo and Patricia. He also helped quarterback Case Keenum have a career year and is known for getting a lot out of unheralded players. In his first full season as the offensive coordinator with the Vikings this year, Shurmur has Minnesota in the NFC Championship Game and has revitalized what was once a very boring offense. Keenum, who took over for the injured Sam Bradford and threw for more than 3,500 yards and 22 touchdowns to only seven interceptions. Shurmur was the head coach of the Browns from 2011 to 2012 where things did not go well but he has rehabbed his image in stints with Philadelphia and Minnesota.

The Giants fired Ben McAdoo after 29 games and an bad second season. Minnesota went 13-3 in the regular season behind perennial backup quarterback Case Keenum and recently pulled out one of the most dramatic wins in National Football League postseason history against the New Orleans Saints during the Divisional Round.
