Giants round out coaching staff
By Dan Graziano
The New York Giants have hired Oregon State offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf as their new quarterbacks coach, apparently filling the one remaining vacancy on their coaching staff. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, current quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan will remain on the staff but in a different role. It's possible Ryan could be the tight ends coach, since that was the spot that was vacant.
Langsdorf was on the New Orleans Saints' coaching staff in 2004 along with new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. He's been at Oregon State ever since.
The Giants hired McAdoo as offensive coordinator after his predecessor Kevin Gilbride retired right after the end of the season. The next day, they let go of longtime tight ends coach Mike Pope and running backs coach Jerald Ingram. Earlier this week, they hired former Vikings quarterbacks coach Craig Johnson as running backs coach to replace Ingram, and with Langsdorf on board they appear to be full again, though without announcing all of the assignments.
The Giants are not expected to let go of any more assistants this offseason.
