Some late-season wins couldn't save Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, who was fired Monday, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed.
Shurmur, who took over before the 2018 season, finished with a 9-23 record during his time in New York after Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Eagles.
Vacchiano reported Sunday afternoon that Shurmur was not likely to return, while GM Dave Gettleman is expected to stay on. He also reported on Dec. 11 that the "consensus around the league" was that Shurmur would be out after the season. At the time, the Giants were on a nine-game losing streak.
As far as potential replacements for Shurmur, that list could include Mike McCarthy, Jason Garrett, and Matt Rhule.
Ron Rivera has also been viewed as a potential replacement, but he is expected to wind up with the Redskins.
When it comes to Garrett, the Cowboys are expected to inform him on Monday that he will not be retained, reports Jean-Jacques Taylor of ESPN.
Aside from his dismal record at the helm, Shurmur also struggled when it came to clock management. And his play-calling on offense (which he refused to relinquish) was often of the head-scratching variety.
