The Giants, who missed the playoffs this year for the fifth time in six seasons and lost 13 games, completed the second step in revamping their front office on Monday by naming Pat Shurmur as the new head coach.

Last month, Dave Gettleman was named the team’s new general manager. Gettleman recently held the same position with the Carolina Panthers, where he lead the team to the top of the NFC. He is known for drafting well and being a traditional, no BS coach.

Shurmur, who comes to the Giants from the Minnesota Vikings, lead the Vikings to the NFC championship game, will be tasked with rebuilding one of the games most storied franchises who on their way out of their worst season in 92 years. He will also have to bring the roster back together after many players turned on eachother at the end of last season. His predecessor, Ben McAdoo, was expected to be one the next Giants leader, but quickly proved he was in over his head as a head coach.

The Giants hope Shurmur will bring the franchise back to its winning ways, and will help to bring some veteran mentality into a fractured locker room. After the vikings resurrection, the Giant’s front office hope that they can have a similar turn around and quickly bring their team back to the playoffs within the next few years.

Giants fans everywhere will have to wait until the season to see if their new head coach is all he’s cracked up to be, or if he’s just another offensive coordinator turned head coach in over their head.
