The Giants hiring of former Packers offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is a surprise coupled with the fact that the comfortable hire was there in former New York assistant Mike Sullivan and Big Blue (uncharacteristically) opted to think outside the box.

McAdoo comes from a Mike McCarthy background and at 36 years old will be an offensive coordinator for the first time in his career.

Part I: Graham w/Armen on The Team 

"It's a position that suits him pretty well," said former Packers QB Graham Harrell. "He can control the room and he'll be in front of the offense and have their respect."

Harrell was with the Packers from 2010 to 2013. McAdoo worked with the tight ends until 2012 when he exclusively became the quarterbacks coach.

"He understood the offense as a whole better than most people do. An offensive coordinator position fits him better than being a position coach."

From an offensive scheme standpoint, there will be major changes for the G-Men as well.

"It's kind of the evolved West Coast offense. They have some basic running game stuff but the passing game has evolved so much and I think that's what's made it so successful."

The Giants have also announced that tight ends coach Michael Pope and running backs coach Jerald Ingram are no loner with the team. There are no further coaching changes expected at this time.
