Minnesota will travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in the NFC Championship game on Sunday.
Unfortunately for Shurmur, the Eagles chose not to bring him back as the team's head coach.
The Giants job would be Shurmur's second permanent head-coaching gig after leading the Cleveland Browns for two years from 2011-2012 while compiling a 9-23 record. Before taking over as offensive coordinator, he was the tight ends coach at the start of 2016. He can get some revenge on the organization this Sunday.

More talk that Matt Patricia is likely the Lions' head coach
The Patriots will host the victor of Sunday's Pittsburgh Steelers-Jacksonville Jaguars matchup next week at Gillette Stadium. It appears that the back-and-forth of "will he or won't he" be the next head coach of the Lions may be over.

In the midst of coaching rumors involving Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia, there's a much older coordinator in the running to fill a head coaching vacancy. The 52-year-old has developed a reputation as a "quarterback whisperer" throughout his 19-year National Football League coaching career, as recently evidenced by turning Case Keenum into a championship game quarterback. That would be when the Vikings are either eliminated from the postseason or heading into their bye week before Super Bowl LII.
Shurmur has helped Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, and Nick Foles post multiple career-highs as offensive coordinator in Philadelphia and Minnesota, and could be the ideal choice should NY select a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Shurmur is in his second season with the Vikings. "That might not make the most sense for the Giants, who have the Eli Manning situation still to deal with, rookie quarterback Davis Webb entering Year 2 and the possibilities with the No. 2 overall pick". He apparently wasn't on the reported Cardinals short list for a second interview however after he left Arizona and went to NY for an interview.
As the Vikings OC, Shurmur led Keenum and the offense to a top-10 rating in points per game (10th, 23.9), rushing yards per game (seventh, 122.3) and third-down conversion rate (third, 43.5).
Part of Shurmur's role as head coach will also be to minimize any distractions Beckham offers while trying to maximize his talent.
