The Giants took a page from Tampa’s hiring book and also hired from within the organization. Ben McAdoo was also an offensive coordinator the same as Dirk Koetter and in this quarterback-driven league, I’d expect to see more of these type of hirings happen more frequently.
“Ben McAdoo, one of the internal favorites to replace Tom Coughlin, was hired as the 17th head coach in New York Giants history, the team announced Thursday. McAdoo, who has served as the offensive coordinator under Coughlin for the past two seasons, will be introduced at a news conference on Friday morning. He never has been a head coach.”-“I am honored,” McAdoo said in a statement. “… I have been very fortunate to have a lot of great coaches, administrators and players take an interest in me and my career. It has been a privilege to work and learn under Coach Coughlin.” – Reported by Dan Graziano
