Langsdorf reportedly headed to NY Giants
While there's rarely a good time to lose an assistant coach, much less a coordinator, losing Langsdorf less than two weeks before Letter of Intent Day is certainly less than ideal.
Sports Illustrated first reported the news. The Corvallis Gazette Times on Saturday said that OSU Sports Information confirmed that the Giants had asked Mike Riley for permission to contact Langsdorf about the job and that permission was given.
Langsdorf has been the Beavs' offensive coordinator and QBs coach the past nine seasons, serving as a graduate assistant at Oregon State for two seasons prior to that. Under Langsdorf, QB Sean Mannion this past season set the all time Pac-12 mark with 4,662 air yards. He also tossed 37 touchdowns in 2013.
Langsdorf, 41, was on the Saints' coaching staff alongside new Giants' offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo back in 2004.
The OSU offense this past season ranked 26th in the FBS in yards (6,071) and 29th in scoring (34.8). OSU's passing game was third nationally, at 372.6 hashes per game.
Riley took over OSU play-calling duties from Langsdorf in 2012 after the Beavs' 3-9 season in 2011. Riley was asked by media on a few occasions during this past season if he was still calling the plays in 2012 and Riley said he was continuing to call the plays.
Langsdorf will join a newly made-over Giants coaching staff following a 7-9 season. The tight ends and running backs coaches were fired and the current quarterbacks coach, Sean Ryan, is expected to be reassigned according to reports.
