The Giants want to get the most out of Daniel Jones. They’ll do it with the guy who has helped get the most out of Josh Allen.

Jay Glazer of Fox reports that the Giants have decided to hire Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to the team’s next head coach. The two sides currently are working out a contract.

Daboll gets the nod over Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores.

Daboll, who also was under consideration in Miami, presided over an offense that has seen Allen become a star player over the past two years. Despite some regular-season struggles in 2021, the Bills hit their stride in recent weeks, culminating in a pair of incredible performances from Allen and the offense against the Patriots and Chiefs.

The Giants have made it clear that Jones will be the quarterback in 2022. Daboll will be the person entrusted with making Jones into a far better quarterback than he has been during the first three years of his career.

  1. Great hire , now we need to fix our salary cap issues. Dump all the dead weight and free up some positions for guys who won’t make excuses to play every Sunday. LETS GOOOOOO

  2. phew…. guy was fired over and over and over before lucking into Josh Allen… he’s insanely overrated and this will be a regret in 12 months to 2 years. Thank god he’s not a dolphin

  3. How many guys are drooling to get the chance to work with josh allen now. Josh is going to make a lot of assistant coaches wealthy during his career

  4. Giants fans are having wet dreams of Jones becoming Josh Allen.
    He doesn’t have nearly the raw skills of Allen. The best he can do is utilize the skills he has.

    They made the right choice for GM and now HC. Let’s hope ownership doesnt screw this up.

    You will not know this if it is true until 2024. But if they were the wrong guys, you will know by late 2022 or early 2023

  6. My god…the Giants finally did something smart??!!

    This guy will turn that offense around in less than a year.

  7. New York football Giants fans thought Ben McAdoo was rock bottom,then Joe Judge said “Hold my beer!!! Maybe Brian Daboll can provide the stability that New York so desperately needs.

  8. Any OC would succeed with this version of Josh Allen…seems to me the Giants shoulda went after the guy that developed Josh Allen…which is their QB coach Ken Dorsey…#duh

  9. Time will tell if he is a great coordinator or not. He leaves behind the talent of Josh Allen & prior to that he left behind the talent of Tua Tagoviola and the NFL ready Bama offense. Before those 2 stints, he failed miserably as a coordinator…Hopefully he really has become that good and can salvage Daniel Jones & turn around the Giants.

  10. Better than hiring a special teams coach who wasn’t even remarkable at that job. Maybe Daboll is going to succeed. NFC East is anyone’s division — especially with that clownshow in Dallas. But even if Daboll isn’t the long-term solution, it’s at least a logical choice.

  11. “ I knew Jack Kennedy and I can tell you your’re no Jack Kennedy. “. Said Lloyd Benston about Dan Quayle. Daniel Jones. Your No Josh Allen. Typical owner getting enamored of toys someone had they do not

  12. Doesn’t matter who the hc is if they have to hitch their cart to Daniel “I throw it in the dirt and trip over my own feet”Jones

  13. Mr Chubby who is apparentkky afraid of salad just ran into a buzzsaw in NY.

    Won’t be pretty.

  14. Another Bellichek clone. They just tried this with Joe Judge. Here are his offensive rankings as a coordinator: 32, 29, 22, 24, 30, 24, 2, 5. It’s only when Josh Allen teamed up with Stephon Diggs that he was able to have any success.

  15. Brian Daboll is a quality guy and an excellent coach. He is a strong reason why the Bills have built a positive culture and a winning record. He’s a Buffalo boy (born and raised) so I’m biased but I think it’s a great hire. Glad he’s not in the AFC.

  16. The next few years will show whether the rise of Josh Allen is more because of Allen, or more because of Daboll. Can’t argue with the Bills’ success, but I suspect it’s Allen.

  17. Big mistake picking the Giants over the Dolphins.
    As bad an organization as they are they are better than the Giants with better players and quarterback.

  18. Excellent hire. Let’s see if he can save Daniel Jones or do,they cut bait on him and go with someone else.

  19. Well if it all goes once again to crap … least this new guy has already lost his hair huh !!! … n the olde saw put up to the test once again …. does the OC make the QB (as in Allen) or does the QB make the OC look better than he really is ?? we shall find out via 22 n maybe even shockers 23 !!!

    I don’t disagree. But you can say that about any successful program. It’s like nature versus nurture. Was it Josh or how Daboll developed him.

    ———-

    Is there any individual that they could have hired that you would not come back with a negative critique? Who do you think they should have hired?

  23. When he was the Chiefs OC, it was some pretty uninspiring play calling. I have a feeling you’re about to find out Josh Allen was more of an OC than this guy. For your sake NY, hope I’m wrong.

  24. Russ Wilson will end up as the starting QB of the Giants in 2022, you heard it hear 1st..

  25. Outstanding play by a QB, at least for a couple seasons, creates the upward career trajectory for an offensive coordinator (or sometimes a QB coach). It often only means the QB was good, at least for awhile (see Joe Flacco…).

  26. The Miami Dolphins open Head Coaching job was very attractive due to the amount the Dolphins are under the salary cap and their personnel on defense. The main negative was the front office including the owner Stephen Ross. Ross should self reflect as to why Daboll chose New York instead of Miami!

  27. He’ll evaluate Jones and in a short period of time realize his brain can’t process the Quarterback position. Then move on to the next option.

  28. Sean Payton used to be an assistant in NY for the Giants. I wonder if the Maras at least gave him a call to find out if he was interested. I would bet not, though. Their loss…
