Reports: Giants Offensive Coaching Staff Complete

The revamping of Tom Coughlin’s offensive assistants is reportedly complete, according to multiple reports.

In addition to new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and new running backs coach Craig Johnson, the Giants have reportedly hired Oregon State offensive coordinator Danny Langsford to be their new quarterbacks coach, according to a report first made by Sports Illustrated.

Langsford, who is the son of Ed Langsford, a college scout with the San Diego Chargers, has 17 years of coaching experience, 11 of which were at Oregon State, per his coaching bio in the Oregon State football team’s media guide.

The Beavers’ offensive coordinator for nine seasons, Langsford, 41 years old, spent the 2002-2004 seasons as the assistant wide receivers /special teams and quality control coach for the New Orleans Saints before returning to Oregon State in 2004.

According to The Oregonian, Langsford donated a kidney to Laurie Cavanaugh, the sister of retired Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, in May 2007. Laurie Cavanaugh is married to Mike Cavanaugh, the offensive line coach at Oregon State University.

The Giants have not yet confirmed the hiring of Langsford or the anticipated reassignment of current quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan. That is expected to take place in the coming days.
