Giants Still In Search Of Offensive Coordinator

Mike Shula

Mike Shula will be leaving the Panthers and joining new coach Pat Shurmur's staff, according to NFL Insider.

Former Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Mike Shula is expected to join the New York Giants as an offensive coordinator. New Giants special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey was also in Carolina with Gettleman.

Shula has been an offensive coordinator with the Panthers for the last five seasons and has been a coach in the National Football League from 1988-2002 and from 2007 until now.

It's likely that the Giants will draft a quarterback this spring, and Shula will work closely to develop whoever that is.

Shula was sacked after the Panthers' 31-26 Wild Card round loss to the Saints this past season and despite being an offensive-minded coach, Gettleman never considered Shula as a potential head coaching candidate, instead interviewing Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.

Shula has plenty of coaching experience, beginning has career as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1988.

Shula previously was offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers from 2013 to 2017.

Shula was not the first choice for offensive coordinator, otherwise he would have been hired long before this week. After that he worked for three years as a quarterbacks coach for the Jaguars before landing with the Panthers.

They never finished in the top 10 in total offense or higher than 19th in passing yards with Cam Newton - who often runs with the ball - as quarterback.

The offensive coordinator position is of the utmost importance despite the expectation that Shurmur will call plays during games. Shula was the Panthers' offensive coordinator for five seasons. Those two tenures have gone pretty differently, as Saban has won numerous national titles and Shula only had one winning season.

Shula's lone head coaching job was at his alma mater. In four seasons at the helm in Tuscaloosa, Shula tallied a 26-23 record, though 16 of those wins were later vacated due to NCAA violations involving free textbooks.
