On Thomas McGaughey: ďI knew Thomas in the profession, and after having a chance to visit with him, I knew it would be a perfect fit here. Heís an outstanding coach. He coached top 10 units in special teams.Ē
So, Did Pat Shurmur get the Offensive Coordinator he wanted...  
M.S. : 2/15/2018 4:01 pm : link

...or did he defer to Dave Gettleman with Mike Shula?

I looked at Shurmur's and Shula's coaching backgrounda, and I saw no obvious overlap/connection.

I'm tkaing it on faith that Shurmur agreed because Shula was the best fit, but maybe I'd feel a little more confortable had Shurmur brought someone in he was used to working with.

Mike Shula has coached under Dave Wannstedt (along with Ron Rivera) and Ron Rivera. Ron Rivera was also LB Coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999-2003 when Pat Shurmur was first TE/OL Coach then QB Coach. Not to mention Pat's uncle, Fritz Shurmur had a 20+ year coaching career in NFL until he passed away from cancer (otherwise it would have been longer)
I get that DeFillipo and Stefanski were the top choices for OC  
BobR in Durham : 2/15/2018 4:54 pm : link
with a few more speculated on in social media and the press. But does anyone outside of Shurmur actually know how many OC candidates he interviewed? I'd guess that quite a few may have taken the unusual step of contacting Shurmur to inquire about the job. So, is it so out of bounds that Shula was the best of a group of candidates and was selected based on his conversations with Shurmur?
Sounds good.

Kick Ass.

Carry on.

Also Shumur has ties to Norv Turner and his offense. Rivera brought that offense to Carolina as well.
DeFillippo

Was our interest in him verified or was that pure speculation? Stefanski definitely was someone we were waiting for.
Iíve watched every Giant coaching  
RetroJint : 2/15/2018 7:30 pm : link
change since Red went in for Allie. Iím 62. Maybe itís just my age. Iíve never been less interested or enthusiastic about a new coach & his staff , other than when Handley was trotted out in May of Ď91.

My very best to these guys. I hope they turn out to be a juggernaut .

Same age as you RetroJint and kinda feel the same. Maybe it's just a generational thing! {:-)
You guys..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 2/16/2018 8:36 am : link
were jazzed for Fassel?

I believe pretty strongly that neither of you probably even had a clue who he was. Or Fox. Or Payton.

But carry on.
I think in the case of what has evolved since our last SB  
Jimmy Googs : 2/16/2018 8:56 am : link
change in the front office and coaching staff doesn't need to be flashy, it just needs to change.

Keep tinkering with it until it starts working again...
Nail the draft and free agency as best as possible  
Frank in Silver Spring : 2/16/2018 9:11 am : link
And our new coaches will look all the better.

Seems the fact that Shurmur is going to call plays probably limited the candidates interested and do we know whether the Vikings allowed Stefanski to interview?
Retro ... M.S. ....  
Spider56 : 2/16/2018 3:55 pm : link
Iím the same age as well (season tix from Ď72 thru Ď93 before moving to Raleigh) .... I guess I could say Iíve always looked to the positive with all new coaches (even Ray H ) ... but more often than not Iíve been wrong... especially burned by Benny the bum ... so maybe being neutral on the new guy is ok ... letís reconvene in a year.

Spider56... welcome to the club! We need more 62-year olders on this site! {:-)
