Pat Shurmur Contract
Giants give head coach Pat Shurmur a five-year deal
Pat made it official on Monday when they announced that Shurmur would be the team’s next head coach.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Giants are giving the 52-year-old Shurmur a five-year deal.
Ironically enough, the deal the Giants gave their former head coach Ben McAdoo was for four years. McAdoo clearly didn’t make it to the end of that deal since the Giants fired him in the second year of his contract.
Shurmur is also the first Giants head coach to receive a five-year deal since Dan Reeves when he was hired in 1993 to replace Ray Handley, who was also fired after two seasons.
Due to the Vikings playing in the postseason until almost late January, the Giants had to wait to officially make the hire of Shurmur.
They were able to interview him, but due to NFL rules, the team couldn’t negotiate the terms of a deal until Minnesota’s season was complete.
The Vikings lost in the NFC Championship to the Philadelphia Eagles 38-7 and thus, the watch was on for when the Giants were going to make their hiring of Shurmur official.
Pat Shurmur offense
Pat’s offense will be on display at least one more time before he brings his schemes to the Giants. The Vikings offensive coordinator is preparing to face the Eagles in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
If the Vikings lose, Shurmur should officially be announced as the new Giants’ head coach in short order. If the Vikings win, Shurmur’s hiring will be delayed for two weeks until after the Super Bowl.
Shurmur was named NFL Assistant Coach of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America on Thursday for his work with the Vikings’ offense this season. Here’s a look at what has made Shurmur’s offenses so successful and what’s in store for the Giants:
Shurmur’s roots are in Andy Reid’s West Coast offense, which features spread concepts. Shurmur has also taken concepts from other stops, including Chip Kelly’s up-tempo attack and Norv Turner’s vertical passing game.
All of those influences have produced an offense that could best be described as a “power spread.
” The Vikings used three-wide receiver sets 56 percent of the time this season, which is in line with the league average for the most common personnel grouping.
But the Vikings had the second most rushing attempts and their 53:47 pass-to-run ratio was the fourth-lowest in the league this season. So even if Shurmur spread the field, he still wants to pound the ball on the ground.
Get ready to hear a lot about “run-pass options,” as the quarterback in Shurmur’s offense typically has the option to call a run or a pass at the line based on the look from the defense.
The quarterback will often be called upon to get the ball out quickly, but Shurmur incorporates downfield shots. Vikings quarterback Case Keenum ran play-action on 28.7 percent of his passes, according to Pro Football Focus.
Former Giants coach Ben McAdoo used 11 personnel (one running back, one tight end, three wide receivers) on a staggering 92 percent of the plays in 2016. That made for an incredibly predictable attack.
Shurmur has shown more versatility with the Vikings’ personnel groupings. The Vikings used 11 personnel on 56 percent of their plays and two-tight end sets on 29 percent of their plays this season.
That’s a far more balanced approach and one that will likely continue with the Giants due to the presence of tight ends Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison, who was in Minnesota with Shurmur in 2016.
Perhaps the most encouraging reviews come from Vikings players who say Shurmur tailors his scheme to put them in the best position to succeed. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs said Shurmur is open to feedback and willing to make changes based on players’ suggestions.
The Giants’ offense has been extremely rigid for the past two seasons, seemingly with only a handful of plays on McAdoo’s oversized play sheet.
Shurmur should find creative ways to get wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. the ball and use Engram’s speed as more of an asset down the field.
Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford set a then-NFL record with a 71.6 completion percentage last season. Journeyman Case Keenum ranked second in the NFL
with a 67.6 completion percentage this season. That’s to be expected in Shurmur’s offense, which emphasizes quick, safe throws.
Shurmur’s quarterbacks also typically have impressive touchdown-to-interception ratios. Donovan McNabb became the first quarterback to throw for more than 30 touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions when Shurmur was his quarterback’s coach with the Eagles in 2004.
Nick Foles set a then-NFL record for the best touchdown-to-interception ratio with 27 touchdowns and two interceptions with the Eagles in 2013 with Shurmur as the offensive coordinator.
Shurmur’s offense features a heavy dose of screens to backs and receivers. That will be an adjustment for Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who has struggled with screen passes throughout his career.
Manning’s experience in McAdoo’s system should make him comfortable with the footwork required to run Shurmur’s offense.
Manning set a career-high with a 63.1 completion percentage in his first season with McAdoo as his offensive coordinator in 2014.
