New York Giants: Update on Offensive Coordinator Search
The New York Giants continue to expand their search for a new offensive coordinator. Kevin Gilbride resigned last week and New York has set the replacement wheels in motion with a few potential candidates.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan and Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains interviewed for the position yesterday. Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo is set to interview with the Giants on Saturday.
McAdoo has become a hot name around the league, as he is reportedly being considered for multiple coaching vacancies. He’s been linked to the Cleveland Browns head coaching position and the offensive coordinator job for the Miami Dolphins.
However, Sullivan may be the early frontrunner for the Giants job based on his past experience as a member of the Giants’ coaching staff. Sullivan served as the wide receivers coach for the Giants from 2004-2009 and the quarterbacks coach from 2010-2011. He then spent two years as the offensive coordinator for the Bucs before being fired after this season along with the rest of the staff.
Victor Cruz gave Sullivan his endorsement, as he basically said the Giants need to make some slight changes but not undergo a complete overhaul. We’ll see if the front office agrees with Cruz, especially owner John Mara who recently called the Giants offense “broken.”
The search is probably far from over, as more names may emerge as playoff teams continue to drop.
