Breaking News: Brian Daboll may sign a quarterback for the team.

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll revealed that he’s considering taking over play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Mike Kafka for the 2024 season.

“It’s something I’m looking into,” Daboll said Wednesday morning at the NFL owners meeting, per team reporter Michael Eisen. “I think there’s 20 head coaches at this point in time that call plays in the league (either offensively or defensively). … There might be a little bit more. I’ve been doing a bunch of research, but no decision has been made. I’m still going through that process, thinking about what we need to do.”

Daboll was speaking publicly for the first time since Jan. 8, the day after the end of the 2023 campaign in which the Giants disappointingly finished with a 6-11 record.

Kafka, who received the additional title of assistant head coach this offseason, served as the primary play-caller during Daboll’s first two seasons at the helm in New York. However, Daboll previously excelled as a play-caller during his four years as offensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills, and he admitted that part of him misses those duties.

“Certainly,” he said. “I did it for a long time. There’s a lot of things that go into it. Part of the evaluation that I talked about, there are some other things that I’m looking into. I take my time and do what I think is best for the team.”

Daboll went on to clarify that nothing is definite as of yet, as he knows there is a negative perception that comes when a head coach focuses on one side of the ball.

“Still working through that process,” Daboll said. “There’s quite a bit of people nowadays that do that. So, again, it’s something that I’ll look into. Whatever I feel is best for the football team, that’s the way we go.”
