Giants owners say McAdoo staying as coach until season’s end
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Ben McAdoo is staying as coach of the New York Giants, at least until the end of the season.
Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch issued a statement Monday saying while they are frustrated and disappointed with the Giants’ 1-8 record, they won’t evaluate the team and make any moves until the end of the season.
McAdoo’s future has been a major topic the past two weeks in a wake of a 34-point home loss to the Los Angeles Rams a little more than a week ago, then an embarrassing loss to a San Francisco 49ers team that was winless until Sunday.
The owners said McAdoo has their support. The Giants have not fired a coach in the middle of the season since 1976.
