The Giants had two openings on their coaching staff.
In 2015, when the Panthers reached the Super Bowl, Shula was named Offensive Coordinator of the Year by Pro Football Focus.

That pointed to Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski, who worked under Shurmur in Minnesota and was a candidate to replace him as offensive coordinator.
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. There had also been talk about Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley joining the staff, but he may be in line for a promotion to offensive coordinator in Philadelphia after Frank Reich left to become the Colts head coach.
Shula was sacked by the Panthers at the end of the 2017 season and was in Carolina during Dave Gettleman's entire stay as general manager. However, he was sacked along with quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey after their playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. He was their offensive coordinator from 1996-99 and served as the quarterbacks coach of the Dolphins from 2000-02 and Jaguars from 2007-10.
