Brian Daboll may start calling Giants’ plays in 2024

Head coach Brian Daboll said he is “looking into” calling the New York Giants’ offensive plays next season.

Offensive coordinator Mike Kafka handled those duties during Daboll’s first two seasons with the team.

Speaking at the NFL owners meeting Tuesday in Orlando, Fla., Daboll, 48, said it might be time for a change.

“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,” he said. “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.”

Before taking over the Giants in 2022, Daboll called the plays as the Buffalo Bills’ offensive coordinator for four seasons from 2018-21.

Daboll, who has also been an offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs (2012), Miami Dolphins (2011) and Cleveland Browns (2009-10), admitted he misses calling the plays.

“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 doesn’t appear to be motivated by a dissatisfaction with Kafka, who was rewarded with the additional title of assistant head coach last month.

The Giants were 9-7-1 in 2022 but slumped to 6-11 during a 2023 season derailed by starting quarterback Daniel Jones’ torn ACL. The New York offense finished 29th in the NFL in scoring with just 15.6 points per game.
