Ben McAdoo is the fourth coach to win at least 10 games in his debut season with the Giants. If he wins his remaining two games, he will become the most successful first-year coach in franchise history.

Here is a look at the coaches who hit double-digit wins in their first go-round with the Giants:

Allie Sherman, 1961: 10-3-1

Dan Reeves, 1993: 11-5

Jim Fassel, 1997: 10-5-1

Ben McAdoo, 2016: 10-4 (with two games to play)

Reeves’ 1993 team is the only one of the bunch to win a playoff game, and it was the only time a first-year Giants coach won one.
