The team made it to the NFC championship game, where they lost yesterday to the Philadelphia Eagles. B y Monday morning, the Giants were maneuvering to bring Shurmur, 52, to their headquarters in New Jersey to sign a contract and to introduce him to the New York-area news media.
Shurmur most recently spent the 2017 season as the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator.
Shurmur went 9-23 in his first head coach stint with the Browns, but Rudolph expressed confidence that his coach's message and abilities will translate beyond a position group or an offensive unit. He later returned to Philadelphia as Chip Kelly's offensive coordinator before landing with the Vikings.
Shurmur's offensive brilliance turned a third-string quarterback into one of the Vikings' best offensive weapons. "We interviewed six talented and qualified candidates, and we feel like Pat, with his vision and experience, is the right person to lead our team". On Tuesday, when Shurmur is officially named head coach of the Giants, the clock starts ticking, as he is tasked with turning around a franchise that bottomed out with the most losses (13) in a season in its 92-year history. The other big decision on his plate and much more pressing is who his defensive coordinator will be and former Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio is a top candidate, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Pellegrino hopes Barcelona expertise may help Southampton
Pochettino is hoping the services of Toby Alderweireld may return soon but the trip to St. The game was even and full credit to Southampton because they fight and play well.
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 know that because our entire locker room respects him", Rudolph said. His first National Football League job was as the Birds' tight ends and offensive line coach in 1999, and in 2002, he became the team's quarterbacks coach.
"I think if he gets the opportunity, he'll be successful", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. Their offense struggled badly for the second straight season, and three defensive players were suspended for their conduct.
With general manager Dave Gettleman stationed this week in Mobile, Ala., to check out players at the Senior Bowl, an introductory press conference might not be scheduled until late in the week.
