Although it has yet to be officially confirmed by the team, it appears the New York Giants have hired Oregon State offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf as their new quarterbacks coach.
The news was originally reported by Lindsay Schnell of Sports Illustrated:
Source close to Oregon State informs me that OC Danny Langsdorf has been offered job as QB coach for New York Giants. Didn’t see that coming

After spending a few seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Langsdorf rejoined Mike Riley’s coaching staff at OSU in 2005 (he previously serve as a general assistant for the Beavers from 1997-98). The OSU passing attack, led by quarterback Sean Mannion, excelled under Langsdorf’s tutelage in 2013. The Beavers ranked 26th in the nation with 6,071 total yards and 29th with 34.8 points per game. Prolific through the air, the Beavers finished third in the nation — behind only Fresno State and Texas Tech — with 372.6 passing yards per game.
As for New York’s passing attack in 2013, well, the less said the better.
