The Giants have fired Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese, the Daily News confirmed.
Benching Eli Manning and making the franchise quarterback cry for the world to see was the last straw for McAdoo. Reese, despite two Super Bowl wins in his first season of 2007 and in 2011, has missed the playoffs five of the past six seasons primarily due to his mismanagement of the roster and draft.
Only 10 of Reese’s 43 draft picks from 2010-2015 remain on the team. And his refusal this offseason to upgrade the offensive line was nothing short of malpractice. He was spared two years ago when Tom Coughlin was shown the door but couldn’t survive a second plummeting of the team on his watch.
Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch also canned McAdoo as head coach Monday morning, less than two full seasons into a four-year contract, with the Giants an unthinkable 2-10 coming off Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the Raiders at the Black Hole in Oakland.
