New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur implies after the loss to the Jets that he isn’t concerned with his current job security.
The New York Giants have officially lost six-consecutive games. In correlation, the end of head coach Pat Shurmur‘s tenure could officially be right around the corner. After Sunday’s 34-27 loss to the New York Jets, Shurmur’s seat is only getting hotter.
Whether he’s fired Monday morning, or at the end of the year, or even beyond that, Shurmur isn’t worried about his job security. He confirmed that to reporters after the loss to their crosstown rivals.
Is Giants HC Pat Shurmur worried about losing his job?

“My concern is putting a team on the field that’s going to win a football game. That’s my concern,” the second-year Giants coach said. “It’s a one-week concern. Getting ready to play the next opponent and putting a winning performance on the field. That’s my concern.”
Sunday’s loss marked the second straight time the Giants have fallen to the Jets in the regular season. The last time these two teams met was in December of 2015. The Jets won that game 23-20 in overtime.
Big Blue hasn’t won a game since Sept. 29, when they defeated the Washington Redskins 24-3 in a Week 4 matchup. In their last six losses, they’ve fallen to the Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, and now Gang Green.
If the season were to end today, the Giants would have the No. 3 overall pick in the draft. Needless to say, Shurmur could be out sooner than later. But, unfortunately, we can’t predict how the future will turn out, so it’s a decision we’ll just have to anticipate.
