Giants pick Pat Shumur to be their new head coach

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.
