Ben McAdoo has been fired by the New York Giants as head coach.

The Giants elevated McAdoo to head coach from offensive coordinator before the 2016 season and he led them to the playoffs in Year 1.

The Giants have a 2-10 record and McAdoo appeared to progressively lose the locker room over the course of the season.

McAdoo benched Eli Manning before Week 13, which appeared to accelerate his dismissal. The Giants previously said they would wait until after the season before making any changes.

Steve Spagnuolo will assume head coach duties on an interim basis.
