Giants are closing in on a solid option at offensive coordinator:
The New York Giants are on the prowl for their next offensive coordinator, and Pat Shurmur has his eyes set one man specifically — a man that he has ties with and has excelled in the NFL.
Philadelphia Eagles’ running back coach Duce Staley has propelled his group of backs into one of the leagues most feared. He has maintained and helped LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi become two of the most dominant backs in the NFL. He’s also turned rookie RB Corey Clement into a potential star. Clement managed 321-yards rushing (4.3 average-per-carry) and 123-yards receiving with six overall scores. Remember, Clement is the third running back on the roster.
Staley has heard the rumors linking him to the Giants under Shurmur, and despite shaking off the questions, he made it apparent that he’s prepared to take on the job of offensive coordinator in the NFL.
The Giants are looking like they could be 2017’s Los Angeles Rams in 2018… Keep up with YOUR team to ensure you don’t miss out on their greatness! Sign up to our FREE newsletter to hear the news FIRST.
According to the NY Post, here’s what Staley said:
“I am,” Staley said when asked if he’s ready to be an offensive coordinator. I know I am.”
“You hear about rumors, you hear about this, you hear about that, during this time rumors are definitely out there, being spread around,” Staley stated during the Eagles media opening. “Hey, me as an individual, of course I don’t want to stay still in this business, but my focus right now is on the Philadelphia Eagles and this Super Bowl, all that will come afterwards. If I’m blessed one day to move up the ladder and become one, I’ll thank God and move on, but right now it’s all about the Philadelphia Eagles and this Super Bowl."
Being that the Giants have yet to secure an offensive coordinator, it’s safe to assume their potential targets may still be vying for a Super Bowl. After the big game on Sunday, we can expect the Giants to make their move.
Shurmur and his staff are also looking cloesly at Eagles’ John DeFilippo, who helped develop Carson Wentz into the league’s next top quarterback.
It seems as if the Giants are about to steal all of the key pieces on the Eagles’ coaching staff right our from under them.
