Pat Shurmur leaving Minnesota Vikings for the Big Apple

  • Baylor coach Matt Rhule is a former Giants assistant coach who wasn't on the team's radar for the first round of interviews. The Giants need to line up coaches who want the job in case Pat Shurmur says

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is set to become the next head coach for the New York Giants, according to multiple reports Monday.

Consider Odell Beckham Jr. on board with the Giants' new expected head coach.

Shurmur brings experience, having served as head coach of the Browns in 2011-12 (with a 9-23 record). After helping transform Case Keenum into a productive quarterback this season, Shurmur has been one of the most sought after head coaching candidates for a number of teams around the National Football League during the past few weeks. The Eagles elected to hire Doug Pederson who would choose not to retain Shurmur as his offensive coordinator. The 52-year-old native of Dearborn, Michigan was also an assistant with the then-St.

The Giants can not officially hire Shurmur until the Vikings' season - which was extended by Stefon Diggs' miracle touchdown on Sunday - is over. If Shurmur becomes the Giants' head coach, he could return a favor by retaining Spagnuolo as defensive coordinator.

The Cardinals, Giants, Lions and Colts still have coaching vacancies, but this morning, the Titans added themselves to the list when they and coach Mike Mularkey agreed to part ways.

But once the Vikings' playoff push is over, Shurmur is a virtual lock to take the reins of the Giants under new GM Dave Gettleman. The Vikings are playing on the road Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. The move can not be formalized until the Vikings are eliminated from the playoffs.

The Chicago Bears offseason just got a little bit better as one of their division rivals will lose a critical member of its coaching staff. He later returned to Philadelphia as Chip Kelly's offensive coordinator before landing with the Vikings.

"A source says Shurmur's presentation opened some eyes, and what has previously been reported by several outlets appears to be accurate: he has mentioned the desire of reuniting with free agent quarterback Case Keenum on whichever team he goes - if that opportunity presents itself". In his first four seasons, Keenum played for three teams, had a career passer rating of 78.4 and a touchdown-interception ratio of 24-20.
