Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur talks to GiantsBy TOM CANAVAN

The New York Giants have interviewed Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur for their vacant head coaching job.

Shurmur met with co-owner John Mara, general manager Dave Gettleman, and assistant general manager Kevin Abrams in Bloomington, Minnesota, on Saturday.

The Vikings (13-3) have a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The 52-year-old Shurmur, who had a two-year stint as the Cleveland Browns’ head coach, was the fourth person the Giants have spoken in their search to find a replacement for Ben McAdoo, who was fired on Dec. 4 after less than two years on the job.

Giants interim Steve Spagnuolo was interviewed Wednesday and New England Patriots’ coordinators Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels were interviewed Friday in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
