Giants New OC Job Isn't to Call Plays, But Groom Future

After missing out on Kevin Stefanski Giants hire Mike Shula as OC

The Giants had previously been interested in Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski to take over as offensive coordinator, but the Vikings blocked the Giants' request to interview him.

The New York Giants have hired Mike Shula as offensive coordinator, according to multiple reports.

Shula led the NFL's highest-scoring offense during that Super Bowl season, when Gettleman was in his third year as the Panthers' GM. Shula's background gave Shurmur that assurance.

Shula will be tasked with reviving a Giants offense that features former Ole Miss quarterback Eli Manning and former LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He was also the offensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1996-1999. But he has never juggled both roles at the same time.

Shula worked with Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for his entire seven-year career. Newton, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 draft, has made three Bowls and was named league MVP in 2015. However, he was sacked along with quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey after their playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Hughes is expected to replace Sam Simmonds, whose shoulder injury rules him out of the games against Scotland and France . Wales assistant coach Rob Howley said it was "disappointing" but that "there was plenty of time after that decision".

Shula, 52, is the son of the NFL's all-time winningest coach, Don Shula. Under Shula, Carolina's offense became one of the most unsafe in football, as he oversaw 2011's top overall pick, quarterback Cam Newton, rise to elite quarterback status. Shurmur intends to call plays on gamedays but wanted a trusted offensive coordinator with input into game plans, and now he has experience at his right hand.

In his previous National Football League coaching stop in Jacksonville, Shula worked with David Garrard, who posted his career-best numbers under Shula's tutelage.

Shula's lone head coaching job was at his alma mater. He played quarterback at Alabama and was the head coach there from 2003-06.

Shula posted a 26-23 record in four seasons at Alabama before getting fired. Shula was replaced by Nick Saban, who has won five national championships at Alabama.
