Instead, New York proved willing to overlook the dismal NFC title game showing by the Vikings, for whom Shurmur was the offensive coordinator, against a divisional archrival in the Eagles, no less.

The lone Pro Bowl player from this season's team tweeted several fire flame emojis insinuating his excitement above a tweet from the Giants that contained a video highlighting the positive impact Shurmur has had on previous teams he coached.

McAdoo spent eight years on McCarthy's offensive staff in Green Bay, serving six years as the tight ends coach and another two as quarterbacks coach.

Shurmur, the current Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator, flew back to Minneapolis after the Vikings' 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game to conduct exit interviews.

Ben McAdoo won 11 games and reached the playoffs in his first season but was sacked December 4 when the Giants were 2-10 and a day after two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning saw his streak of 210 straight starts end.

The Vikings finished 10th in the National Football League in scoring (23.9 points), 11th in total yardage (356.9), and seventh in rushing yardage (122.3) this season.

In a statement on Monday, Giants president John Mara and chairman Steve Tisch praised Shurmur for his, "Outstanding track record in developing young players", which will be instrumental in the rebuilding that will occur this off-season, as the Giants come out of their worst year yet. He went 9-23 as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Despite of this, England went on to put up over 300 on the board and then ended up winning the match by 16 runs. Buttler found a wily ally in Chris Woakes (53 n o, 36b, 5×4, 2×6) and the duo added 113 runs in 11.5 overs.

"I can't wait to start working with Pat", said Gettleman.

I feel this would be a great hire.

"We are pleased to welcome Pat to our organization and look forward to the leadership he will provide for our team". Gettleman added, "He is made for this moment and this opportunity".

It is all but a given that he will accept the Giants offer to become their next head coach.

"I know that because our entire locker room respects him", Rudolph said. Shurmur previously was offensive coordinator for the Eagles (2013-15) and Rams (2009-10). Shurmur was a four-year letterman as an offensive lineman at Michigan State, starting at center his final three years. "I think if you don't have that, the odds are really stacked against you".

The Vikings players raved about him as a coach and person.

This will be Shurmur's second chance at being a head coach.
