Source: Oregon State’s Danny Langsdorf to become Giants’ quarterbacks coach
Danny Langsdorf is expected to leave his position as Oregon State’s offensive coordinator after being offered a job as the New York Giants’ quarterbacks coach, a source told SI’s Lindsay Schnell. The 41-year-old Langsdorf, who has been with Oregon State since 2005, previously worked with new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo for the Saints in 2004.
The Giants would not confirm Langsdorf’s move, though a member of the organization stated that Langsdorf had been in for an interview.
The franchise’s previous quarterbacks coach, Sean Ryan, had been rumored to be on the chopping block as Tom Coughlin reexamined the team’s staff after a disappointing 2013 season. Quarterback Eli Manning had a particularly rough go of it — he threw a league-leading and career-high 27 interceptions paired with a career-low number of touchdowns (18). McAdoo, after working hand in hand with Aaron Rodgers over the past two seasons, will pair with Langsdorf in an attempt to turn those numbers around.
Oregon State’s offense ranked 30th in the FBS this past season in points scored at 34.8 per game, and the passing attack was the third most-prolific in the nation at an average of 372.6 yards. Last year, the Beavers put up 5,610 total yards of offense, No. 2 on the school’s all-time list. QB Sean Mannion briefly flirted with the idea of turning pro after 2013 before opting to stay in Corvallis.
Langsdorf served as the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator for the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos in 2000-01 before jumping to the Saints in 2002 to serve as an offensive assistant.
