EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Ben McAdoo needed two seasons to fix the New York Giants offense.
His job now is to get the franchise back on track.
The Giants confirmed on Thursday that the 38-year-old McAdoo has been hired to replace Tom Coughlin, who stepped down a little more than a week ago after 12 seasons.
McAdoo faces a big challenge. After winning their second Super Bowl under Coughlin, the Giants have missed the playoffs the past four seasons. They have posted losing records the past three seasons, going 6-10 the past two.
