The New York Giants have fired head coach Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese.

In the midst of an embarrassing 2-10 campaign and coming off a week in which the football world was collectively appalled at the way the team  handled the benching of Eli Manning, team ownership made it's move to reset the franchise course on Monday morning.

Reese had been with the team since the early 90's and had served as head of football operations 2007 and oversaw Big Blue's two most recent Super Bowl seasons.

McAdoo was in just his second year as a head coach, previously serving as offensive coordinator for the Giants and Packers. He took the Giants to the playoffs last season with a successful 11-5 rookie year.

Speaking with WFAN radio in New York City, Giants running back Shane Vereen said he'd heard about McAdoo's firing via a group message from other backs on the team. He then said the person who informed him had read about it on the social media platform Twitter. Vereen went onto say he'd received no official word from team management and said as far as he knew - and considering Monday was an off day - there were no team meetings planned for the day.

Reports say Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will take over as interim coach.
