Langsdorf completes New York Giants coaching carousel

In a story first broken on Twitter yesterday by Lindsay Schnell of Sports Illustrated, the New York Football Giants have named former Oregon State University offensive coordinator, Danny Langsdorf, the team's new quarterbacks coach. The move was confirmed to day by Michael Eisen on Giants.com.

According to Eisen, "Danny Langsdorf, who recently concluded his 11th season (and second stint) at Oregon State and ninth as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, will instruct Eli Manning and the Giants’ quarterbacks. Langsdorf worked with new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo on the New Orleans Saints’ staff in 2004."

The addition of Langsdorf created a ripple effect on the Giants' offensive coaching staff with former quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan going back to his previous position as wide receivers coach. Kevin M. Gilbride, the son of the former offensive coordinator, will coach the tight ends in 2014 in place of the recently dismissed Mike Pope.

With these moves and the addition of Craig Johnson from the Minnesota Vikings, new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo has clearly put his stamp on the offensive side of the ball. While the lack of offensive production was looked upon as an anomaly by the team in 2012, the offense's continued slide in 2013 called for more drastic measures.

The Giants were ranked 28th in offense this season, and quarterback Eli Manning had a franchise-record 27 interceptions this season.
