Now available to sign with another team following the Vikings’ 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game Sunday night, Minnesota offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is reportedly in line to become the coach of the New York Giants.

Shurmur interviewed for the Giants job on Jan. 6 during Minnesota’s bye week, and the 52-year-old could be named coach as early as Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.

Shurmur previously coached the Browns from 2011-12, Cleveland going 9-23 over that span. He has earned a reputation for developing and getting the best out of quarterbacks, including this season with Case Keenum.

Shurmur would take over a team in the Giants that finished 3-13 and dealt with internal dysfunction for much of the season. New York holds the no. 2 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft, and will likely select its quarterback of the future with current quarterback Eli Manning having just turned 37.
