The New York Giants hired Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as their new head coach, the team announced Friday.
Daboll looks to end the trend of the Giants firing three consecutive coaches every two years. He replaces Joe Judge, who went 10-23.
Daboll has been with Buffalo since 2018, transforming his unit into a top-five offense in the NFL in the last two seasons. In addition, he helped develop Josh Allen from a raw prospect into a superstar quarterback.
The Bills’ connection between Daboll and new Giants GM Joe Schoen made it an almost expected hire. Schoen is looking to turn the Giants in a different direction following the worst 10-year stretch in their history.
“My immediate goal is to assemble a coaching staff — a strong staff that emphasizes teaching and collaboration and making sure our players are put in the position to be their best and, ultimately, to win games,” Daboll said in a release. “That’s why all of us do this. To teach, to be successful, to develop talent, and to win.”
Daboll was one of five finalists along with former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, Bills’ Leslie Frazier, Cowboys’ Dan Quinn and Giants’ Patrick Graham.
Daboll was the only offensive coach among the finalists. Furthermore, the Giants are hoping Daboll can unlock the potential quarterback Daniel Jones and fix the NFL’s 31st ranked offense.
Bills’ quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey is likely to become an offensive coordinator with either the Bills or Giants, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
