With the departure of Kevin Gilbride following the disappointing 2013 campaign of the New York Giants, the team is now in search of a new offensive coordinator to try and get things back on track next season.
On Wednesday, they’re interviewing Mike Sullivan, who was on the Giants’ offensive staff from 2004-2001. How many others they plan to speak with remains to be seen, but if it’s up to star wide receiver Victor Cruz, they’ll end the search with Sullivan.
Because of Sullivan’s familiarity with the offense and some of the faces within the group, Cruz believes that Sullivan is the right man for the job.
“I could see that,” Cruz said, via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “But, you know, I think it’s just his familiarity with our personnel, with our offense, the one we had. Obviously, he’s running a similar offense with Tampa Bay but I’m sure he’ll have some tweaks here or there. I just think we need a refresher, I think, more so than people needing a whole big name. A refreshing face that we know, one we’re all comfortable with, and we can go from there.”
Before anyone goes out of there way to bash Cruz for speaking out on executive decisions, he absolutely has a point in this area. This team wants to get back to work as quickly as possible to figure out everything that went wrong this past season and right the ship, and they want to do it with the right man in charge.
Sullivan may be that man.
