The Giants are still looking for a head coach, and today lost another piece of their coaching staff, as wide receivers coach Adam Henry has left to join Hue Jackson and the Cleveland Browns.
Henry was free to interview with other teams after Giants head coach Ben McAdoo was sacked last month. Per the report the contract is for three years, with financial terms yet to be disclosed.
Henry, 45, replaces Al Saunders, who will transition to an advisory role for Jackson.
No one would describe the Browns wide receivers as being "productive" in 2017, not after seeing Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins tie for the team lead in receptions from wide receivers with 27; Louis lead the position group in receiving yards with 357; and Higgins, Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt, who will be seen plying his trade this weekend in the playoffs with the New England Patriots, lead in touchdown receptions with two each. He's also talked to former Bengals assistant Ken Zampese about a possible assistant position, and he let special teams coordinator Chris Tabor, who had been with the Browns since 2011, move on to the Bears.
Henry spent the last two seasons on the Giants coaching staff as receivers coach, with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard being the team's headliners at the position in 2016. He finished third in the National Football League with 101 catches and 1,367 receiving yards, second-highest of his career, and third-highest in Giants history. Beckham also finished fifth in the National Football League with 10 TD catches. Shepard's 65 receptions were second among National Football League rookies to the Saints' Michael Thomas.
