Pat Shurmur Contract
Giants give head coach Pat Shurmur a five-year deal
Pat made it official on Monday when they announced that Shurmur would be the team’s next head coach.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Giants are giving the 52-year-old Shurmur a five-year deal.
Ironically enough, the deal the Giants gave their former head coach Ben McAdoo was for four years. McAdoo clearly didn’t make it to the end of that deal since the Giants fired him in the second year of his contract.
Shurmur is also the first Giants head coach to receive a five-year deal since Dan Reeves when he was hired in 1993 to replace Ray Handley, who was also fired after two seasons.
Due to the Vikings playing in the postseason until almost late January, the Giants had to wait to officially make the hire of Shurmur.
They were able to interview him, but due to NFL rules, the team couldn’t negotiate the terms of a deal until Minnesota’s season was complete.
The Vikings lost in the NFC Championship to the Philadelphia Eagles 38-7 and thus, the watch was on for when the Giants were going to make their hiring of Shurmur official.
Pat Shurmur Fired
Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, who was fired on after two seasons.
Shurmur, who took over before the 2018 season, finished with a 9-23 record during his time in New York after Sunday’s 34-17 loss to the Eagles.
Vacchiano reported Sunday afternoon that Shurmur was not likely to return, while GM Dave Gettleman is expected to stay on. He also reported on Dec. 11 that the “consensus around the league” was that Shurmur would be out after the season. At the time, the Giants were on a nine-game losing streak.
As far as potential replacements for Shurmur, that list could include Mike McCarthy, Jason Garrett, and Matt Rhule.
Ron Rivera has also been viewed as a potential replacement, but he is expected to wind up with the Redskins.
When it comes to Garrett, the Cowboys are expected to inform him on Monday that he will not be retained, reports Jean-Jacques Taylor of ESPN.
Aside from his dismal record at the helm, Shurmur also struggled when it came to clock management. And his play-calling on offense (which he refused to relinquish) was often of the head-scratching variety.
