Mike Kafka is expected to be hired as the New York Giants’ offensive coordinator, a major win for rookie head coach Brian Daboll

The New York Giants are expected to hire Mike Kafka as Brian Daboll‘s offensive coordinator, sources confirm to FanSided.

Kafka, 34, has served on Andy Reid’s coaching staff since 2017 when he was an offensive quality control coach and most recently served as the Kansas City Chiefs’ passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Reid’s coaching tree has been among the more successful across the NFL in recent years, and the Giants plundering one of Reid’s top assistants who will work directly alongside Daboll and be instrumental in quarterback Daniel Jones’ development is a major win for the organization.

Prior to entering the coaching realm, Kafka had a five-year career as a backup quarterback, that began when he spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons in Philadelphia, playing for Reid.

Why Mike Kafka is a great hire for New York Giants, Brian Daboll

It remains to be seen whether Daboll or Kafka will call plays for the New York Giants’ offense, but given general manager Joe Schoen suggested he prefers the offensive coordinator call plays, Kafka’s experience working alongside Reid could prove significantly valuable in this role.

Kafka’s hiring will fill all three coordinator roles on Daboll’s staff, as Patrick Graham will likely return as defensive coordinator should the Minnesota Vikings go ahead with hiring Kevin O’Connell as head coach and Thomas McGaughey is returning as the New York Giants’ special teams coordinator.
