Giants’ Joe Schoen, John Mara rave about new coach Brian Daboll: ‘Progressive in his vision and values collab –

N.Y. Giants Joe Schoen introduced as Giants general manager
We’ll see how the hiring of Brian Daboll turns out, but for now, the Giants are unsurprisingly optimistic.
On Friday night, they hired Daboll — the Bills’ offensive coordinator — to replace Joe Judge as their head coach.
Shortly after the hire was made official, new general manager Joe Schoen (who led the coaching search) and co-owner John Mara issued statements about Daboll.
Schoen, of course, knows Daboll well. Schoen was the Bills’ assistant GM from 2017-21. Daboll ran their offense from 2018-21.
Here’s what Schoen had to say about Daboll:
“He fosters relationships with the players and coaches around him. He is progressive in his vision and values collaboration, two of the attributes we think are essential. I am thrilled to partner with Brian and welcome he and his family to this side of the state.”
And here’s what Mara had to say about Daboll:
“Brian was the first candidate we met with when we began our search, and as we continued our conversations, it was clear that his approach to coaching and team building was what we are looking for moving forward with our team.”
Indeed, the Giants conducted their first interview with Daboll — via video chat — last Friday, shortly after Schoen was hired. And Daboll was the first finalist in this coaching search to get a second, in-person interview. That happened Tuesday at the Giants’ training facility.

The Giants wound up choosing Daboll over former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, who feuded with GM Chris Grier before being fired earlier this month.
