Huskers hire Danny Langsdorf as OC

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- There will be at least one change to the New York Giants' coaching staff in 2015, but it's not one for which the team was planning or for which fans have been hoping.

Quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf, who was with the Giants for only one season, is leaving to become the offensive coordinator at the University of Nebraska.

Fox Sports was the first to report the move, which a source confirmed to ESPN on condition of anonymity.

Langsdorf was Mike Riley's offensive coordinator at Oregon State before joining the Giants' staff this year. Riley recently took the job as Nebraska's head coach, so this move will be a reunion for the two.

Langsdorf was part of an overhaul last offseason of the Giants' offensive coaching staff under new coordinator Ben McAdoo and was charged with helping correct some of the issues that caused problems for quarterback Eli Manning in 2013, which was the two-time Super Bowl MVP's worst season.

Under McAdoo and Langsdorf in 2014, Manning saw his completion percentage rise to a career-high 63.1 and his interception total drop from 27 in 2013 to 14 in 2014. Manning also set career highs in completions and pass attempts, reached the 30-touchdown mark for the second time in his career and threw for 4,410 yards -- the second-highest single-season total of his career.
