Giants pick Pat Shumur to be their new head coach

ESPN - [Full Article]

The New York Giants hired Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur as the 18th head coach in Giants history on Monday afternoon.

Shurmur has a strong history of working with and developing quarterbacks. He succeeds Ben McAdoo, who was fired last month with four games remaining in a 3-13 season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Shurmur has nine years of experience as a head coach or offensive coordinator. His offenses have finished in the top 12 in four of the last five seasons, although that includes two-plus seasons under Chip Kelly. Most recently, he turned the Vikings' offense around. Minnesota finished 11th in total yards in 2017 after finishing 28th the year before.
