Pat Shurmur isn’t going into hiding.
And he might not be going very far at all.
Fired by the Giants last week, Shurmur prefers to jump right back into coaching and is expected to be sought after for an offensive coordinator position in 2020 rather than sit out a season, a source told The Post. Shurmur called plays in both of his head coach stops (Browns) and has been offensive coordinator for the Rams, Eagles and Vikings.
Shurmur’s identification of Daniel Jones as a top quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft – when many others around the league scoffed at the idea – as well as his work with Jones throughout a promising rookie season will be a selling point to teams looking to develop young passers.
Jones threw for 3,027 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, with an 87.7 passer rating. The No. 6 pick out of Duke lost 18 of 21 fumbles and endured a nine-game losing streak, though the young Giants did not have enough winning pieces around him.
So, where could Shurmur end up?
