Ben McAdoo's coaching staff is starting to take shape, as the New York Giants have hired a new wide receivers coach.

News broke Sunday that the Giants will hire Adam Henry from the San Francisco 49ers to be their new receivers coach, a position that was vacated when Sean Ryan was hired by the Houston Texans.

This move seems aimed at supporting and nurturing the growth of Odell Beckham Jr. Henry was Beckham's coach at LSU, and is reportedly very close to the young superstar. He was a coach at LSU from 2012 through 2014, when he coached both Beckham and Jarvis Landry to 1,000-yard seasons each. After the 2014 season he joined the 49ers' staff, where he coached last year.

Before his time at LSU, Henry was the offensive quality control coach and tight ends coach for the Oakland Raiders.
