Giants expected to hire Pat Shurmur as head coach

Heading into Championship Weekend for the National Football League, a new candidate seems to have emerged as the potential favorite for the New York Giants head coaching job in Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

Shurmur brings head coaching experience to the Giants after two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, with whom he went 9-23. He then became the Eagles' offensive coordinator in 2013, winning the Eagles' season finale in 2015 as the team's interim head coach after Chip Kelly was sacked.

Since leaving the Eagles after his interim coaching stint, Shurmur has been the offensive coordinator of the Vikings.

Shurmur guided Minnesota's offense to a remarkably productive season in 2017 considering all the obstacles he's had to overcome. He apparently wasn't on the reported Cardinals short list for a second interview however after he left Arizona and went to NY for an interview.

Shurmur was reportedly a finalist for the Cardinals' coaching job left vacant by Bruce Arians' retirement.

Pat Shurmur may not have been their first choice, or even their second choice, but he will get every opportunity to prove he was the right choice to take over a franchise in disarray following a disastrous 3-13 season. That would be when the Vikings are either eliminated from the postseason or heading into their bye week before Super Bowl LII. The Vikings are playing on the road Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.

The Giants have the 37-year-old Manning under contract for two more seasons, while also possessing the No. 2 pick in the draft, which could be used on the quarterback of the future.

McDaniels was not one of the coaches Arizona met with in the first round of interviews. He later returned to Philadelphia as Chip Kelly's offensive coordinator before landing with the Vikings. Minnesota finished 11th in passing yards per game with 234.6. He served as an interim head coach for the Eagles for a win in 2015.

Prolific Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has already taken to Twitter since word initially broke of Shurmur's expected hiring.
