According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Vikings will "consider" former Giants coach Ben McAdoo to replace Pat Shurmur at offensive coordinator.
Shurmur will be announced as the Giants' head coach after the Vikings conclude their season. He'll be replacing McAdoo, who was fired after Week 13. McAdoo was obviously out of his depth as a head coach, but he still has something to offer as a coordinator. Ex-Broncos OC Mike McCoy is also on the Vikings' radar, according to Rapoport.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo is interviewing for the Browns' offensive coordinator vacancy.

And Browns fans thought Mike Mularkey being linked to the job was as bad as it would get. McAdoo did have some success early in his run with the Giants, but his offenses were among the worst in the league the last two seasons even when Odell Beckham was on the field. Texans QBs coach Sean Ryan has also been linked with the job.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo is a candidate for the Packers' offensive-coordinator job.

McAdoo was Green Bay's quarterbacks coach before going to the Giants. The Packers' offensive coordinator job isn't a coveted role because Mike McCarthy handles all the playcalling, but it wouldn't be a bad spot for McAdoo coming off a disastrous 2017. Green Bay also has interest in Colts assistant Joe Philbin.

Jan 3 - 6:31 PM

NBC Denver reports the Broncos are interested in ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo for their opening at QBs coach.

They are reportedly also interested in ex-Bengals OC Ken Zampese. The Broncos have an opening after QBs coach Bill Musgrave was promoted to offensive coordinator in November. They announced Tuesday that Musgrave would remain offensive coordinator for 2018. McAdoo was Aaron Rodgers' quarterbacks coach in Green Bay before arriving in New York. He did poor work with Eli Manning and the Giants' offense.
Jan 2 - 3:18 PM

Giants fired coach Ben McAdoo.

Following the disastrous mishandling of Eli Manning's benching, it had become clear all the hair gel in the world was not going to save McAdoo's job. While the coach did shepherd the team to a playoff berth last season, his offense was dreadful even as the Giants were winning, and those struggles continued this season even before injuries struck. If the losses were not enough, McAdoo was forced to suspend both Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins this season, suggesting there were serious problems in the locker room. Put frankly, this move had to be made. It would be surprising if McAdoo is considered for another head coaching job in the near future.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports firings "are imminent" for the Giants.

Jones makes sure to point out she uses the plural, suggesting both coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese are headed out the door. Neither firing would be a surprise considering how the season has gone, the state of the roster, and the way Eli Manning's benching was handled. The moves should become official later today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Giants could fire coach Ben McAdoo following Week 13 against the Raiders.

McAdoo's time as head coach is "coming to an end" and the Giants could make a switch after Sunday's game. GM Jerry Reese is also on the hot seat, though he appears to have more rope than McAdoo. Owner John Mara was reportedly upset with McAdoo's handling of the Eli Manning benching and feels that McAdoo has "lacked communication skills" throughout his tenure. McAdoo sports a disappointing 13-15 record since replacing Tom Coughlin in 2016.

Giants owner John Mara says there's "no guarantee" coach Ben McAdoo won't be fired before the end of the season.

The Giants were previously committed to giving McAdoo the rest of the year. McAdoo is a lock to be fired and there's not a ton of upside in keeping him around. The Giants are in full tank mode after benching Eli Manning. McAdoo's job status is week to week.

A statement from Giants ownership on Monday indicated Ben McAdoo will likely last the season as the team's head coach.

McAdoo's firing is inevitable, but the Tisch and Mara families sound committed to evaluating his performance at the end of the year, and not pulling the plug during it. "Ben McAdoo is our head coach and has our support. We are in the midst of an extremely disappointing season. Our performance this year, particularly the past two weeks, is inexcusable and frustrating," the statement reads. "... Our plan is to do what we have always done, which is to not offer a running commentary on the season. ... At the end of the year, we will evaluate the 2017 season in its entirety and make a determination on how we move forward."
Mon, Nov 13, 2017 03:59:00 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants do not plan to decide coach Ben McAdoo or GM Jerry Reese's fate before the end of the season.

There seems to have been a Mutiny on the Bounty in East Rutherford, but the 1-7 Giants probably don't see the point in making a move at this juncture. What has become clear is that McAdoo is looking like a dead man walking at coach. It's quite possible Reese will also be shown the door after over a decade as general manager.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 06:28:00 PM

Multiple players told ESPN's Josina Anderson the team has given up on coach Ben McAdoo.

"Guys are giving up on the season, just don't care anymore. McAdoo has lost this team," said one player. "Throws us under the bus all the time. Runs us into the ground and people wonder why we’ve been getting got." This comes after speculation players quit on McAdoo during Sunday’s 51-17 loss to the Rams. McAdoo was forced to drop playcalling duties after Week 6 and has been criticized for suspending Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins. Despite being a year removed from the playoffs, the Giants have been a 2017 disaster and could be forced to make changes after the season.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo has given up play-calling duties.

OC Mike Sullivan called Sunday's upset of the Broncos, which saw the G-Men batter Denver's previously No. 1 ranked run defense on the ground. Eli Manning was forced to stay within himself, attempting only 19 passes. New York's offense has struggled for points the entirety of McAdoo's time as head coach. The reality is, Sullivan's insertion isn't going to make up for the Giants' personnel issues, but a change was overdue.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 11:41:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Giants coach Ben McAdoo is not on the hot seat.

"The Giants believe he is still a future very successful coach," Rapoport said. "This is expected to be just a blip on the radar for the Giants." This is not surprising considering the Giants have not traditionally made in-season changes, but ownership's resolve could be tested if the team continues to lose. The 0-4 Giants host the 0-4 Chargers on Sunday.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 09:43:00 AM

Giants coach Ben McAdoo will continue to call plays this week.

McAdoo considered giving up playcalling with the offense managing just one touchdown through the first two weeks. The Giants "remain committed to their plan" after McAdoo decided against giving the title to OC Mike Sullivan in the offseason. McAdoo will call plays for at least another week, but there could be some offensive changes in a must-win game with the Eagles.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo could surrender play-calling duties.

McAdoo toyed with the idea in the offseason before deciding against it. The G-Men have averaged an abysmal 17.9 points in 18 games with McAdoo as head coach, so a change is arguably overdue. OC Mike Sullivan would likely take the reins were McAdoo to relinquish them.
