Giants fire two coaches
The Giants cut ties with two longtime coaches in response to their hiring of McAdoo. Those two coaches were tight ends coach Mike Pope, who had been with the team for over 20 years, and running backs coach Jerald Ingram, who had been with the team for 10 seasons.
The firings were somewhat shocking but necessary as they welcome in a new offensive coordinator.
“Both of these men are very good talent evaluators and, in their own way, are very good teachers,” said head coach Tom Coughlin. “I decided to make a change in our staff that I believe will be productive going forward. These are very difficult decisions, but I felt they were in the best interests of the Giants moving forward.”
Sean Ryan and Kevin M. Gilbride next?
According to the New York Daily News, the Giants’ coaching staff shakeup may not be over yet. Quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan and receivers coach Kevin M. Gilbride—the son of retired offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride—are reportedly also at risk. It’s believed Ryan should be safe but might have his position be reassigned.
