New York Giants Coaching Search: Top 5 Candidates To Replace Pat Shurmur In 2020 If He's Fired

New York Giants are expected to fire head coach Pat Shurmur as they are in the midst of another miserable season. The Giants are 2-11 and have lost 9 straight games as they will miss the playoffs for the 6th time in 7 seasons. If Shurmur is fired, who will be the top candidates to replace him as the Giants head coach? NFL Daily host Nick Dais goes through 5 Giants targets to replace Pat Shurmur in 2020 IN THE VIDEO ABOVE AND BELOW.

Lincoln Riley is the hot name right now as NFL teams love his offensive creativity and his ability to develop quarterbacks with back-to-back #1 picks in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. If Riley is ready to make the jump to the NFL, will the Giants be the team that gets him? If not, what about a more seasoned candidate like Mike McCarthy? McCarthy’s tenure in Green Bay didn’t end well, but he helped develop Aaron Rodgers and won a Super Bowl with the Packers. Could he do the same with Daniel Jones and the Giants?

The Giants need to jumpstart their offense under Daniel Jones. Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is one of the more proven offensive minds out there. Will the Giants be interested in hiring McDaniels? He burned some bridges when he backed out of the Colts job a couple of years ago. Also, will he leave New England? Most people believe he is the coach-in-waiting behind Bill Belichick.

Ron Rivera feels like the most realistic option as the New York Giants head coach in 2020 and beyond. He has a good relationship with Giants’ GM Dave Gettleman and would like to get a head coaching job after being fired by the Panthers earlier this season. Will Ron Rivera be the Giants head coach next season?

Here’s the list of candidates to replace Pat Shurmur as Giants head coach:
#5 Nick Saban
#4 Lincoln Riley
#3 Mike McCarthy
#2 Josh McDaniels
#1 Ron Rivera
