New York Giants Rumors: Pat Shurmur now 'the top choice'

CLEVELAND OH – SEPTEMBER 9 Head coach Pat Shurmur with Quarterback Brandon Weeden

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who was considered the favorite for the Cardinals' job, now is expected to become the next New York Giants coach. Ironically it's one of the highlights of Shurmur's coaching career that will delay and could possibly preclude him from getting the job with the Giants. The Vikings are playing on the road Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.

It would be Shurmur's second stint as a head coach. He's expected to become New York's next head coach.

Shurmur, 52, spent two seasons in Cleveland in 2011-12, guiding the Browns to a 9-23 record. He can get some revenge on the organization this Sunday. The last time Shurmur worked with a top quarterback prospect was in 2010 when he was the Rams' offensive coordinator and he guided No. 1 pick Sam Bradford to the Rookie of the Year award. Mike Garafolo reports the Giants have been impressed by Shurmur's success with multiple quarterbacks in Minnesota.

After questions under center heading into the season and losing Dalvin Cook early to a torn ACL, the Vikings offense has been impressive. The Giants cannon officially hire Shurmur until the Vikings' postseason run ends.

Syrian state media says Turkey helped rebel attack
In May past year , Russia, Iran and Turkey signed an agreement to set up de-escalation centres in Syria. It added that the rebels had used Turkish vehicles.

NY owns the No. 2 pick in April's NFL Draft and is expected to select a quarterback to serve as Eli Manning's heir.

Shurmur's departure could also have a tremendous impact on what Minnesota decides to do with their upcoming quarterback situation this offseason.

Shurmur returned to the Eagles as Chip Kelly's offensive coordinator in 2013. Could Vikings quarterback Case Keenum soon follow? When the Eagles made a decision to let go of Kelly, Shurmur ended up filling in for the final game of the 2015 season. Minnesota finished 11th in passing yards per game with 234.6. The Colts still would have a vacancy, though, and while Wilks has not interviewed with that team, he could be a late candidate.
