Where does this leave Mike Sullivan?

Jolly Blue Giant : 1/18/2014 10:32 am
I don't think there are any OC positions that are not filled, and if there are I have not seen his named mentioned as a possible candidate anywhere. Would the Giants let him go without a job after giving him so much praise? Is he likely to head to the college ranks? My guess is he ends up on our staff in some capacity.
He's just waiting for TC to retire

because BBI told me he's the heir apparent with all his military training... Derp
Mike Sullivan..

Will be interviewing for the Army HC gig per Rotoworld I believe..not sure but read online last night.

Didn't Army just hire a new head coach?
Jolly Blue Giant : 1/18/2014 10:39 am : link
Hired a new head coach in December. Sullivan was rumored to be a candidate before they hired Monkin.
Should we take up a collection for him?  
Klaatu : 1/18/2014 10:39 am : link
gidiefor, get on that ASAP.
You're right..  
Goin Deep : 1/18/2014 10:41 am : link
Monken. Sullivan must have been one of the previous canidates.
In your wildest dreams,

do you actually think our OC would want Sullivan on this staff? get real!

Why do we care?

Seriously, why is Mike Sullivan's situation worth more thought than, say, Romeo Crennel's? Or any other former Giants position coach who got fired by another team?
i could have this whole thing messed up, i admit  
ChriS : 1/18/2014 11:00 am : link
but i think the two best years eli ever had statistically, sullivan was his QB coach. i think. if that's the case, here's hoping we at least think about that again. shouldn't we?
I still think  
Phil in LA : 1/18/2014 11:02 am : link
Either he or Loggains will be our new QB coach with Ryan moving to RBs or TEs.
He should go to the Jets  
tomjgiant : 1/18/2014 11:07 am : link
They could use someone to smack Geno in the head and get him to take his headphones off.
I agree  
BigBlueinDE : 1/18/2014 11:30 am : link
with Phil. He is highly thought of by the staff and organization and I'm sure they would like to have him on the staff in some capacity.

It's not that I "care"  
Jolly Blue Giant : 1/18/2014 11:33 am : link
I just find it interesting that there is a young coach available out there that the Giants ownership has publicly heaped praise on and has a lot of respect for. If Mara has a press conference 2 weeks ago and mentioned Romeo Crennell by name and multiple current players came out and endorsed him as DC I would be interested in his situation too.
He interviewed and was passed over for the OC job  
blueberry : 1/18/2014 12:05 pm : link
I doubt he comes back in a lesser capacity under McAdoo
Baltimore still has  
Pete in MD : 1/18/2014 12:06 pm : link
openings for OC and QB coach (they didn't have a dedicated QB coach last season.) Spagnuolo is an assistant there so Sullivan has a small connection to that staff. They only interviewed Kyle Shanahan for OC thus far, according to reports.
If you any of you were McAdoo...(see, that rhymes!)...why would you  
Optimus-NY : 1/18/2014 12:12 pm : link
want Sully to be working under you on your offensive staff? He's not from your system, and you don't know him (assuming McAdoo is picking the guys he wants to come work with him to teach his system). It'll be interesting to see what happens with him. Sully is at minimum a good leader of people, and a coach who can deal well with players. Plax and the QBs all loved him.
The Giants  
Phil in LA : 1/18/2014 12:19 pm : link
Probably have to extend Eli this offseason. Don't you think they'd rather extend the good Sullivan Eli than the crummy Ryan Eli? Sully may not go for it, but it'll probably be some new QB coach.
Is it strange  
Pete in MD : 1/18/2014 12:21 pm : link
that the offensive coaching staff has not been completed yet? They obviously had replacements in mind when they fired Pope and Ingram. Could there be assistants from teams still playing that could be coming to NY? I know McAdoo was in San Fran for a little while but not when Harbaugh was there.
SBlue46 : 1/18/2014 12:27 pm : link
I was thinking same. Sully
And loggains are trying to
Get Oc jobs...After 2 teams
Lose this weekend and no
Jobs available they may
Take lesser job here...Also
The texans coach..
I think the Gmen have their  
Pete in MD : 1/18/2014 12:34 pm : link
eye on Denver offensive assistant Jim Bob Cooter bc they have a thing for guys with funny names (Hedgecock, Mike Cox, etc.)
Looking at Loggains resume  
Rflairr : 1/18/2014 1:07 pm : link
he would do well to try to get on as a position coach somewhere. Wouldn't surprise me if he ended up here as QB coach or RBs coach.
Rflairr : 1/18/2014 1:09 pm : link
probably has an offer from Tommy to come back as QB coach or another position. But ego and pride are big in this profession.
Will McAdoo take on as the QB coach as well?  
micky : 1/18/2014 1:14 pm : link
Who knows?. I'd figure they want a whole change in philosophy on offense (hence Ingram and Pope let go) they now stay away from a Sullivan. Start a new people around.
If Sully is cool with being the QB coach, then that would work.  
Optimus-NY : 1/18/2014 1:21 pm : link
No problem whatsoever with Phil's point. Rflairr brings up a good point too about ego and pride. Hopefuly Sully can take Uncle Marsellus Wallace's advice...

give McAdoo  
aquidneck : 1/18/2014 1:45 pm : link
a chance to succeed please without Sullivan looking over his shoulder.

I gotta hunch that hiring Sullivan as QB coach would be a big mistake.
McAdoo coached  
TMS : 1/18/2014 1:56 pm : link
QB and TE himself recently. So his input could well will be who gets those jobs.
where it leaves Sullivan?  
mdc1 : 1/19/2014 10:52 am : link
looking for a job as he was several weeks ago. Generally you should never go back to the place you came from. Go coach with another NFL team or some college.
