The Giants have a few moves among their offensive position coaches under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.
Sean Ryan will be the wide receivers coach, and Kevin M. Gilbride (former OC Kevin Gilbride’s son) will move from WR coach to be the new tight ends coach.
The team has also officially hired former Oregon State OC Danny Langsdorf, who will be the new quarterbacks coach.

Langsdorf will join Ryan, Gilbride, OL coach Pat Flaherty, assistant OL coach Lunda Wells, offensive assistant Ryan Roeder and new RB coach Craig Johnson on the remodeled staff.
Head coach Tom Coughlin is now ready to turn the page on the old guard under Kevin Gilbride Sr. With McAdoo and Langsdorf he feels the Giants will reinvent themselves on offense.
“I like the makeup of our offensive staff,” Coughlin said per the team’s website. “There are some obvious and very good offensive thoughts here. And then you bring in Ben McAdoo … I’m excited about that part of it as well. I think the combination of the fundamentals, the innovative ideas and concepts coming from the new coaches, combined with the coaches that we have here that are fundamentalists and very good coaches in their own right, I’m excited about this spring as we put together our identity as an offensive team again. First and foremost, it’s going to be good for our players.”
Change is constant, if not always good. The Giants are hoping to reignite the fire under QB Eli Manning, who performs better in an up-tempo game plan.
