Mike Shula will remain in the NFL coaching circles, as the new offensive coordinator of the New York Giants.

The hire was first reported by the NFL Network. Shula will also serve as quarterbacks coach for new Giants head coach Pat Shurmur.

Shula spent the last five seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, but the team decided to make a change following the 2017 season. Last season, the Panthers finished in the bottom half of the league in total yards (19th out of 32 teams) and total yards (28th).

There were plenty of highlights during Shula's time with the Panthers. Carolina won the NFL South three times, went to the playoffs four times and reached Super Bowl 50 (2016). The Panthers had the NFL's top offense in 2015.

Shula played college football at Alabama. He was the Tide's starting quarterback from 1984-86. He later was hired as Alabama's head football coach, with a record of 26-23 in four seasons (2003-2006).
