Del Rio in Line for Giants DC Job

If that is true maybe the latest rumor is also true.

While it's been widely speculated that Steve Spagnuolo, who has a long history with Shurmur, would remain the Giants' defensive coordinator, ESPN reports on Sunday that former Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio appears in line for that job.

I feel this would be a great hire.

Jack Del Rio is the leading candidate become the next Giants defensive coordinator.

Del Rio was sacked on December 31, after a regular season in which Oakland counted as one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL.

Del Rio had previously been the head coach in Jacksonville, going 68-71 in his nine years after replacing Tom Coughlin.

Apparently, Del Rio just loves to coach.

The New York Giants, until we are shown otherwise, are a mess.

Pat Shurmur's Giants coaching staff began to round into form Sunday morning, even before Shurmur could officially sign his Giants contract with his Minnesota Vikings still alive for Sunday night's NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. He won a Super Bowl against the New York Giants as the Baltimore Ravens linebackers coach during the 2000 season.

Ten years later, he joined the Denver Broncos as their defensive coordinator where once again, his defense allowed the second-least amount of yards in the league and the fourth-least amount of points. They would go on to hoist the Lombardi Trophy the year after Del Rio's departure.

McGaughey, meanwhile, has plenty of ties to the Giants. At 3-13, NY had already fired both head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese, clearing the way for a new regime.

So for now, Shurmur, Del Rio, and McGaughey will reportedly headline New York's next coaching staff.
