The New York Giants announced Friday they've hired Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as their new head coach.

"It is an honor and a privilege to be named head coach of the New York Giants," Daboll said in a statement.

He added: "I promise we will work our tails off to put a team on the field that you will be proud to support and give us the results we all want."

Daboll had been with Buffalo since 2018, overseeing the likes of quarterback Josh Allen.

He'll reunite with Giants general manager Joe Schoen, who'd served as the Bills' assistant GM since 2017 before replacing Dave Gettleman earlier this month.

Daboll also interviewed with the Miami Dolphins and the Chicago Bears. Additionally, the New Orleans Saints asked to speak with him as well, a source told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

In addition to Daboll, the Giants twice interviewed Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, among several other candidates.

Daboll will replace Joe Judge, who New York fired Jan. 11 after two seasons.
