Giants expected to hire Pat Shurmur as head coach

Shurmur, 52, became a hot coaching candidate due to his work with quarterback Case Keenum this season, and Sam Bradford last year after taking over for Norv Turner midway through the campaign.

As the Vikings OC, Shurmur led Keenum and the offense to a top-10 rating in points per game (10th, 23.9), rushing yards per game (seventh, 122.3) and third-down conversion rate (third, 43.5). Minnesota finished 11th in passing yards per game with 234.6.

The Giants will mark the second stint for Shurmur as a head coach. He spent two seasons with the Cleveland Browns in 2011-2012, compiling a 9-23 record.
