NEW YORK — The New York Yankees are making a big push for a new coach, and they’re getting a little help from the NFL.
The New York Times reports that the Yankees are bringing in former Giants offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to run the offensive unit.
Shurmur spent the last three seasons with the Giants.
He served as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2016 and ’17.
Shufflin said on Friday the team is “very much looking at Pat for the job, and we’re very much looking forward to having him back.”
He also said the club’s search for a head coach will likely begin in earnest next week.
Shuffle said he would make no comment about whether Shurm would be a candidate for the new job.
The team is also exploring a possibility of hiring former Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner as their next head coach.
Turner led Cleveland to a Super Bowl victory in 2016, and he’s been a member of the Giants staff since 2009.
The Giants have lost six straight games and seven of their last eight.
