It didn’t take former New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur very long to land on his feet. Just two weeks after being dismissed by the Giants, Shurmur appears to be headed to Denver to become the Broncos’ new offensive coordinator.
Former #Giants head coach Pat Shurmur is expected to be the #Broncosâ€™ new offensive coordinator, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Deal not done but decision made on Shurmurâ€™s end and itâ€™s headed that way. Drew Lock gets a new OC.

With Rich Scangarello fired league source says Vic Fangio will move fast to secure Pat Shurmur as Broncos new offensive coordinator. Shurmur has offers from multiple teams but Broncos are his top choice in large part because of talented young core led by Drew Lock. #9sports

Shurmur will join Vic Fangio’s staff in Denver where Drew Lock is the quarterback. Before last year’s draft, Shurmur did not attend Lock’s pro day at Missouri last spring, sending offensive coordinator Mike Shula instead while he attended West Virginia QB Will Grier’s pro day.
Lock met with Shurmur the next week in New Jersey at the Giants’ facility but the Giants would pass on Lock – and every other quarterback on the board in favor of Daniel Jones, who they drafted with the sixth overall pick.
Shurmur is responsible for developing several quarterbacks in his long career as an assistant – Nick Foles, Case Keenum and Jones to name a few.
