The New York Giants offered Oregon State offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf their quarterbacks coach job, SI.com reported Sunday.
Several media outlets reported that the team is set to announce Langsdorf's hiring. He will work with Eli Manning, who had a poor 2013 season in which he tossed 18 touchdowns to 27 interceptions.
Langsdorf has coached in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints. He was an offensive assistant in 2002 and coached special teams in 2003. He has been with Oregon State since 2005.
Langsdorf will join offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and running backs coach Craig Johnson as new hires with the Giants.
Langsdorf has a unique connection to just-retired Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. In 2007, Langsdorf donated a kidney to Laurie Cavanuagh, who is both the wife of Oregon State offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh and Gilbride's sister. Kevin M. Gilbride, her nephew, is currently the Giants' wide receivers coach.
Sean Ryan has been the Giants quarterbacks coach for the last two seasons and is expected to be reassigned to a new role. NJ.com reports that Ryan could be moving to work with the team's tight ends.
