The New York Giants are parting ways with head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese. The firing comes the day after Giants lost to the Raiders 24-17. New York is just 2-10 this year under McAdoo, in his second season as coach, after going 11-5 and making the playoffs last season.
The move comes less than a week after McAdoo benched franchise quarterback Eli Manning in favor of Geno Smith, ending Manning's streak of 210 consecutive starts. The move caused a massive outcry from the fan base who fervently supported the two-time Super Bowl champion. Fans wanted McAdoo fired last week, and their star QB returned to the starting role.
