Mike Shula returning to National Football League as Giants' offensive coordinator

Meet Pat Shurmur’s staff which is a lot different than McAdoo’s

Shula was not new head coach Pat Shurmur's first choice as the latter reportedly wanted to hire Kevin Stefanski, the Minnesota Vikings' quarterbacks coach.

Mike Shula, who spent the past five seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Panthers (which included a run to Super Bowl 50), will be named the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Giants, a source confirmed to Newsday on Tuesday. Shula worked as offensive coordinator for the Panthers under coach Ron Rivera during Gettleman's tenure as general manager.

The move reunites Shula and new Giants GM Dave Gettleman from their time in Carolina.

Shurmur indicated that he planned to hire an offensive coordinator and a quarterbacks coach, but he clearly believes Shula is capable of handling both roles.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning endured a hard season in which he saw his 210-game consecutive start streak halted.

Shula was sacked after the Panthers' 31-26 Wild Card round loss to the Saints this past season and despite being an offensive-minded coach, Gettleman never considered Shula as a potential head coaching candidate, instead interviewing Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. He was also the offensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1996-1999.

Newton was not the first quarterback to earn his best numbers under Shula. He doesn't have an extensive coaching resume (six years) and has no experience working with quarterbacks.

Even before the tragedy Saskatchewan farmers said they were facing increased thefts and threats and began arming themselves. Within minutes, or rather within mere moments, the internet proceeded to basically explode and caused a great divide.

Under Shula's watch, Carolina's offense failed to find its rhythm this past season after leading the league in scoring in 2015.

Shula, whose father is the legendary former Colts and Dolphins coach Don Shula, and Shumur have not previously worked together.

Shula's play-calling was criticized in Carolina, but that won't be an issue with the Giants because Shurmur plans to call the plays. Shula was the Panthers' offensive coordinator for five seasons. The elder Shula holds the National Football League record for regular season wins and he won two Super Bowls.

Shula was Alabama's starting quarterback during the 1984 through 1986 seasons, and he returned to coach the Crimson Tide from 2003 through 2006.

Shula's lone head coaching job was at his alma mater.

Shula posted a 26-23 record in four seasons at Alabama before getting fired.
