Giants hire Brian Daboll as head coach: What you need to know and what’s next for the team

When Joe Schoen described what he was looking for in a head coach, the new Giants general manager said, “It’s going to be imperative that it’s somebody that’s in lockstep with me that I can work with, we can have constant communication, and we’re going to be aligned in our vision as we build a football team.”

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Schoen has hired Brian Daboll as the Giants’ new head coach. Schoen, as assistant general manager, and Daboll, as offensive coordinator, spent the past four years working together as the Bills developed into a Super Bowl contender.

Having the general manager and head coach aligned is vital as the Giants try to break their cycle of dysfunction and losing. Daboll, 46, is aiming to end the streak of three consecutive Giants coaches fired within two years.

Six candidates interviewed for the position. But only former Dolphins coach Brian Flores was viewed as a serious contender, especially after Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn decided to return to Dallas on Thursday.
