Who will be replacing Tom Coughlin as coach of the New York Giants? Ben McAdoo is closing in on striking a deal with the Giants, according to sources. McAdoo spent the last two seasons at Giants as an offensive coordinator.
McAdoo is one of the internal favorites to join as Giants’ 17th head coach. He came under the limelight for his job with Eli Manning, who put up a stellar show by throwing 65 touchdowns and 28 interceptions and completing 62.8 percent of passes in the last two seasons.
McAdoo also appeared for an interview with the Philadelphia Eagles last week. The Eagles view the 38-year-old as a potential star coach. But no deal has been ratified yet.
The Giants are looking for a head coach after their two-time Super Bowl winner Tom Coughlin resigned last week. Former NFL head coaches like Mike Smith and Doug Marrone, as well as the team’s current defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and the defensive coordinator of the Lions Teryl Austin, were in the race for the job. The Giants also interviewed Adam Gase.
This season under McAdoo, the Giants are ranked sixth in terms of total points in the league.
