The New York Giants are proudly beginning a new era under Joe Schoen (general manager) and Brian Daboll (head coach). This new dynamic duo found great success in recent years rebuilding the Buffalo Bills into one of the NFL’s best teams. Now that Brian Daboll has been officially introduced as the team’s head coach, the search is on for the Giants’ next offensive coordinator. Reportedly, Daboll has his eyes on Ken Dorsey, one of his colleagues up in Buffalo.

According to Bobby Thompson of Fansided, the Giants have offered Ken Dorsey a “lucrative” deal to become the team’s next offensive coordinator. This falls in line with what Joe Schoen said today in Brian Daboll’s introductory press conference:

Ideally, the offensive coordinator calls the plays, but, again, I’m not going to say that’s set in stone because we’re going to let Brian make that decision. – Joe Schoen via Giants.com

Joe Schoen would like Brian Daboll to hire an offensive coordinator to call plays for the Giants’ offense. But, as Brian Daboll pointed out today, “the two head coaches in the Super Bowl right now are calling plays.” So while Daboll and Schoen are both hoping to find an offensive coordinator to call plays, Daboll is open to doing it himself.

Could Ken Dorsey be the Giants’ play-caller in 2022?

Ken Dorsey has been working as the Buffalo Bills’ quarterbacks coach since 2019. In 2021, his role expanded as he became the passing game coordinator in addition to the quarterbacks coach for Buffalo. Dorsey has not called plays before, though, and is in line to become the Bills’ next play-caller with the departure of Brian Daboll. However, Daboll and the Giants seem interested in making Ken Dorsey a first-time play-caller in New York.

According to Dan Salamone, Brian Daboll said he’s comfortable hiring a first-time play-caller if he’s the right fit. Dorsey could be that guy, if he is willing to walk away from the opportunity to call plays for Josh Allen.

The Buffalo Bills also seem to be preparing for the possibility of losing Ken Dorsey. Buffalo has begun conducting interviews with other offensive coordinator candidates as the Giants pursue Dorsey. This could be a sign that the Bills feel like they are about to lose their quarterbacks coach.

Hiring Ken Dorsey would give the Giants a clean sweep of the Buffalo Bills, hiring their GM, HC, and OC all from upstate. These are all of the most important positions that the Giants needed to fill this offseason. With Schoen and Daboll in place, the Giants are nearly there, but aggressively pursuing Ken Dorsey to complete the sweep.
