After the New York Giants hired former Buffalo Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen, hiring Brian Daboll as head coach would make a lot of sense

The New York Giants found their replacement for embattled former general manager Dave Gettleman, hiring Joe Schoen Friday afternoon, which could offer a clue as to who might be the organization’s next head coach.

The Giants, to their credit settled on Schoen following an extensive search exclusively of outside voices and executives from successful organizations — a departure from what had become a nepotistic approach over the past decade from ownership through the front office.

Through this temporary vacuum of time, the New York Giants are currently in, and with Joe Schoen’s arrival, the ideal head coaching candidate is current Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

Why should New York Giants hire Joe Schoen, Brian Daboll as a duo?

Well to simply put it, they have both played crucial parts in steering the ship for the Buffalo Bills who went from a franchise without a playoff appearance in almost twenty years to being legitimate super bowl contenders.

Schoen was the right-hand man to general manager Brandon Beane in Buffalo, where he played a big part in the draft process thanks to his scouting background with the Miami Dolphins where he served his first five years with the organization as a national scout before being promoted within to the role of director of player personnel.

Schoen is already a great fit for the Giants, who will enter the 2022 NFL Draft with a total of nine draft picks with two of them being in the top 10.

Schoen also fits the general manager mold that the Giants have traditionally favored with a heavy focus on scouting background.

Meanwhile, Daboll would be the perfect head coach to pair with Schoen.

The two would already be on the same page from the get-go after having spent four seasons working with each other in Buffalo.

Giants forcing Dave Gettleman onto Joe Judge from the start of his tenure was a nail in the coffin we all figured from the beginning.

The New York Giants’ offense this season was downright shocking. Week 18 vs Chicago Bears proved how horrendous it was when they finished the game with net -10 passing yards.

Big money FA signings like Kenny Golladay were utilized incorrectly, and the jury is still out on Daniel Jones who can’t get past a single season without his coaches being fired.

Bringing in Brian Daboll, who is an offensive-minded coach, would be the best option the Giants can make at the head coach position. What Daboll did with the development of Josh Allen in Buffalo was remarkable.

Daniel Jones will more than likely never be as good as Josh Allen is and that’s fine, but Jones has never been given the support to develop as a quarterback in the NFL and that argument could be put to rest if the Giants hire Brian Daboll as head coach alongside Joe Schoen as GM to turn the ship around for Big Blue.
