New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur and his staff will remain with the organization after losing to the Jets on Sunday.
The New York Giants aren’t improving at all … it actually seems like they’re regressing. After falling to the New York Jets on Sunday by a score of 34-27, the team is now in a worse spot than they were at this time last year. In 2018, they were 3-7 through 10 games. Thus far in the 2019 campaign, they’re 2-8.
So is head coach Pat Shurmur and his staff on their way out? The Giants have reason to part ways with Shurmur or at least some of the assistant coaches, there’s no doubt about it. However, that won’t happen, at least right now.
On Monday, Shurmur addressed the media, saying, “Having slept on it, no; I’m not going to make any coaching changes,” per Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.
Sources close to Vacchiano have also noted that ownership doesn’t plan on firing Shurmur or any of the other coaches on the staff at this time. If the Giants come out of the bye week and lose to the Chicago Bears on Week 12 to go 2-9, then maybe changes will be made. Then again, that’s not 100% clear at this time.
Don’t forget, the Giants fired Ben McAdoo after starting the 2017 regular season 2-10. Therefore, if the Giants succumb to that record, anticipate a decision could be made prior to the conclusion of the year.
Since coming over to New York, Shurmur has posted a coaching record of 7-19. The Giants will take on the Bears after their BYE Week on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
