Giants fire coach McAdoo, GM Reese


The New York Giants have fired head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese after falling to 2-10 season.

McAdoo departed on Monday after nearly two years in the job, having led the Giants to the postseason with an 11-5 record in the previous campaign.

Reese has also been sacked, after the Giants seemingly hit rock bottom during Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders as Geno Smith started at quarterback in place of veteran Eli Manning, who was benched to bring an end to his run of 210 regular-season starts, the second longest sequence for a quarterback in history.

With McAdoo's job on the line, Smith went 21 of 34 for 212 yards and a touchdown but turned the ball over twice on fumbles in a less than impressive performance.

McAdoo, 40, was named the Giants' head coach in January 2016 after spending the previous two years serving as the team's offensive coordinator.

Prior to his stint in New York, he held various coaching positions with the Green Bay Packers (2006-13), San Francisco 49ers (2005) and New Orleans Saints (2004).

Reese, 54, was promoted to the GM position in January 2007 after working in the Giants' front office since 1994.
