Tom Coughlin was one of the NFL’s longest-reigning head coaches before he and the New York Giants mutually agreed to part ways last week. It didn’t take long for the Giants to find their new head coach and it looks like they have hired from within.
According to multiple reports, the Giants are expected to name offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo their new head coach on Thursday. McAdoo was considered one of the favorites for the job before this news was broken by ESPN Wednesday night.
McAdoo has spent 12 years in the NFL, most notably eight years with the Green Bay Packers, coaching tight ends and quarterbacks, during which time he helped them win Super Bowl XLV. He has been the offensive coordinator for the Giants the last two seasons and has earned praise for his work with quarterback Eli Manning.
Manning has thrown 65 touchdowns against just 28 interceptions as well as having a 62.8 percent completion rating the last two seasons.
