The news just keeps coming in regards to Brian Daboll’s New York Giants coaching staff. The latest report is that the Giants are hiring Mike Groh to coach wide receivers.

Earlier in the week, former Giants wide receivers coach Adam Henry (under Ben McAdoo) has been presumed to be ticketed for that job. Over the past couple of days, though, that changed.

Groh, 50, was wide receivers coach for the Indianapolis Colts for the past two seasons. He was offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018-2019.

Groh is the son of former Giants assistant coach Al Groh, and a collegiate teammate of Tiki Barber’s at Virginia, where he played quarterback.

He began his coaching career in 2000 with the New York Jets, and has worked for a number of NFL and college teams.

Groh received an interview recently for the Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator job that went to McAdoo.

In Groh’s two seasons as Eagles’ offensive coordinator, Philadelphia was 18th and 12th in the NFL in points scored.
