Broncos hire Pat Shurmur as offensive coordinator after coach’s dismissal from Giants


Former New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur has been appointed offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos.

Shurmur was fired by the Giants in December after two seasons in charge of the NFL franchise, where he managed a 9-23 record.

The 54-year-old, however, has landed on his feet after joining the Broncos for the 2020 season.

“Pat is an established play-caller with significant experience leading an offense as both a coordinator and head coach,” head coach Vic Fangio said on Tuesday. “Having coached against Pat for a number of years, he’s always impressed me. His track record of developing younger players is outstanding. Pat brings a collaborative approach to working with the staff as well as a flexibility to adjust the offense to our players and opponents. We’re excited to add someone of his calibre to our coaching staff.”

Prior to his role as head coach of the Giants, Shurmur spent two years as offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings.
