The New York Giants are poised to hire offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo as their next head coach, according to multiple reports. McAdoo has been the offensive coordinator for the past two seasons, after having been the Packers tight ends and then quarterbacks coach.

Last week Tom Coughlin “resigned” after 12 seasons and two Super Bowls, causing Eli Manning to cry at his farewell press conference. And Manning’s support of McAdoo is one of the reasons he will be given the job.

Another is the competition the Giants were facing from NFC East rival Philadelphia, who were reportedly chasing McAdoo’s signature as well.

I guess the Eagles will just have to settle for Coughlin himself.
