    The hiring of Ben McAdoo as their new offensive coordinator was only the beginning of a shakeup of the New York Giants' offensive coaching staff.

    In a surprise move, tight ends coach Mike Pope will not return to the Giants' staff in 2014, the team announced Wednesday.

    Running backs coach Jerald Ingram also will not be retained, the Giants said in a release.

    "Both of these men are very good talent evaluators and, in their own way, are very good teachers," head coach Tom Coughlin said in a statement. "I decided to make a change in our staff that I believe will be productive going forward. These are very difficult decisions, but I felt they were in the best interests of the Giants moving forward."

    Pope has spent a total of 23 years as a Giants assistant coach and is the only coach whose name is inscribed on all four of the franchise's Super Bowl trophies.
