AP Source: New York Giants have fired coach Pat Shurmur
(AP) EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – A person familiar with the move tells The Associated Press that the New York Giants have fired coach Pat Shurmur . The once-proud franchise took a step back by winning four games in a season marked by a franchise record-tying nine-game losing streak. Shurmur was released one day after the Giants failed to play the spoiler role and saw the Philadelphia Eagles beat them 34-17 to win the NFC East. The four-time Super Bowl champions finished with a 4-12 record, missing the playoffs for the seventh time in eight years.
