ESPN reports that Ben McAdoo will replace Tom Coughlin as head coach of the New York Giants.

The official announcement will be made during a press conference Friday morning.

The 38 year-old McAdoo served as the offensive coordinator under Coughlin for the past two seasons.

I am honored. I have been very fortunate to have a lot of great coaches, administrators and players take an interest in me and my career. It has been a privilege to work and learn under Coach Coughlin.

I have been preparing for this moment my entire professional life, and without the guidance and support of many people, I would not be here right now.

McAdoo will be the NFL's second-youngest coach behind the 37 year-old Adam Gase of the Miami Dolphins.

 

Former head coach Tom Coughlin resigned last week after a 6-10 season. Coughlin coached the organization for 12 seasons, leading the Giants to two Super Bowl championships.

McAdoo joined the NFL in 2004 as an offensive quality control assistant with the New Orleans Saints.  He then spent one year in San Francisco, and then eight in Green Bay.

According to ESPN, the Giants had the NFL's eighth-best offense in terms of total yards and ranked sixth in the league in total points this past season.
