The New York Giants need a new head coach after firing Pat Shurmur, and have promised an “extensive” search to find one.
Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch, as well as GM Dave Gettleman, have all said that leadership is the top characteristic they are searching for.
Mara put it this way:
“I’m really looking for leadership, that’s the big thing going forward. Somebody who can come in and take control of this roster, help build a culture that is going to lead to winning. Somebody who is going to help us with our football re-organization during the process we’re undergoing right now. We’re looking for all those qualities from the next candidate.”
Gettleman put it this way:
“We need a head coach that can bring together a staff that’s enthusiastic. We need a head coach with leadership. We need a head coach with intelligence, and one that can connect with these players. That’s what we need.”
