The New York Giants plan to hire Adam Henry, who was Odell Beckham Jr.'s college position coach, to be their wide receivers coach, according to multiple reports Sunday.

Henry spent last season with the San Francisco 49ers as wide receivers coach. He was LSU's wide receivers coach from 2012 to 2014.

Beckham played under Henry for the final two years of his collegiate career that resulted in the star wide receiver being a first-round pick.

A source confirmed to ESPN.com on Sunday that Adam will join the Giants under new head coach Bob McAdoo.

Henry previously was an assistant with the Oakland Raiders from 2007-11, serving as an offensive quality control coach and a tight ends coach.

Beckham's Week 15 meltdown against the Carolina Panthers became a storyline in the final weeks under Tom Coughlin, who stepped down as head coach after the 6-10 season.

The criticism of the coaches' inability to get control of Beckham on the sideline during the game came up during McAdoo's introductory news conference as head coach on Friday.

"I should have been better," McAdoo said. "I take full responsibility for that. Odell feels as bad as anybody about it, and it's my job to pull him out of that when we go down that road."
