Pat Shurmur, Mike Francesa feuding over interview cancellation

Mike Francesa

There’s a new beef in New York, and it’s between the head coach of the New York Giants and one of the city’s most prominent media personalities.

Pat Shurmur and WFAN host Mike Francesa have traded barbs since Friday. Shurmur cancelled his scheduled weekly appearance on Francesa’s program, leading the host to criticize Shurmur on Twitter for his perceived lack of accountability and unwillingness to answer tough questions.

Shurmur was clearly aware of the remarks, as he subtly trolled Francesa after the Giants’ 32-31 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Francesa was obviously not going to let Shurmur’s jibe go unanswered, and he responded on Monday.

Francesa is, of course, no stranger to mixing it up with leading sports personalities. The reasons for Shurmur’s cancellation remain something of a mystery, even if Francesa is convinced he knows why. Shurmur is probably not interested in getting into a back-and-forth here, but it’s still worth watching.
