3. He Will Be A Head Coach Someday

McAdoo will be a head coach eventually. He is a rising star who has worked his way up and earned a lot of merited attention. Guys like McAdoo don’t stay a coordinator forever. With another year or two of success in New York, head coaching positions will be available to him.

The question becomes will he be the next head coach of the New York Giants? Tom Coughlin is under contract until 2016. We cannot assume that Coughlin will step down after his two-year extension runs out. Coach Coughlin lives for the game of football. It is likely that 2016 will be Coughlin’s last season but it isn’t a guarantee. If the Giants get back to their winning ways he may never want to step down.

My hunch is that McAdoo will become the next coach of the Giants. By keeping Coughlin after consecutive losing seasons, it seemed like a calculated move to keep McAdoo on the staff. If we are being quite honest it seemed like a time for a change but we didn’t get one. You know what happens when you assume, but I think McAdoo will be the head coach of the Giants someday in the near future.
