Shurmur is presumed to be the next Giants coach, according to the report. If the Vikings lose Sunday's NFC title game to the Philadelphia Eagles, he can negotiate or sign a contract right away.
It is believed that Shurmur lists Del Rio as a favorite to be his defensive coordinator, and Del Rio is reportedly interested in the job.
Del Rio was fired as the Raiders coach after finishing the season 6-10, and he was 25-23 over three seasons. The Raiders owe Del Rio an average of $6 million per year for the remaining three years of his contract. Any salary he is paid by the Giants will offset what the Raiders owe him, a source told Mortensen.
