Ben McAdoo has been fired as head coach of the New York Giants, a season after leading them to the playoffs.
The 40-year-old seemed to have a bright future with the team after leading the Giants to an 11-5 record last season but they have struggled badly this time around, and are currently 2-10, tied for the second worst record in the entire NFL along with the San Francisco 49ers.
McAdoo’s firing comes as little surprise. Although there have been some mitigating circumstances – the team’s best player, Odell Beckham Jr, has been sidelined by injury – the Giants’ owner, John Mara, said last week http://www.officialdetroitredwings.com/Adidas-Luke-Glendening-Jersey that he was “embarrassed” by the team’s record this season. McAdoo had also attracted criticism after the Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning was benched after 210 straight starts. ESPN reports that Manning will return as starter for New York’s next game under interim coach Steve Spagnuolo.
There have also been discipline issues and reports of internal strife within the Giants: McAdoo suspended two players for violating team rules earlier in the season.
McAdoo himself appeared to be ready for Monday’s news. “I Scott Niedermayer Jersey understand where the fans are coming from,” McAdoo said after Sunday’s loss to the Oakland Raiders. “If I was on the outside looking in, I’d feel the same way they feel.”
The Giants also fired general manager Jerry Reese on Monday. Reese had been the team’s GM since 2007 and they had won two Super Bowls during his time in New York.Pedro Martínez Losa’s abrupt departure one month into a stuttering new campaign despite strong recruitment came after a disappointing tenure. In Losa’s three Andrew Heaney Jersey years he won the 2015 Continental Cup (League Cup) and the FA Cup final against Chelsea in 2016 but failed to keep the club in contention in the league.
Now Joe Montemurro is charged with bridging the growing gap between the historically dominant Gunners, who have 43 major trophies in their 30-year history, and the new http://www.authenticsandiegopadres.com/Rickey-Henderson-Jersey money of Manchester City and Chelsea.After a week in London http://www.officialwashingtoncapitals.com/Adidas-Marcus-Johansson-Jersey grappling with the logistics of his round-the-world move and getting as acquainted as he can with a squad split up for an international break, the Australian sits in London Colney still very much surprised to be there. “Ah look, it’s still a little bit surreal,” he says with a wide grin. “Was there any hesitation? Well, no. When a global brand like Arsenal calls you and shows interest obviously Caleb Sturgis Jersey it’s an amazing honour. You think about what a fantastic project it could be. To be involved with such an amazing brand and identity in world football is fantastic.”
