Giants interview Austin, Spagnuolo, McAdoo; Eagles talk to McAdoo as well

The Giants said they would interview defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo for their head coaching vacancy and they announced Thursday that both of those interviews have taken place.

Spagnuolo made his case for a promotion to his current bosses on Thursday morning while McAdoo’s interview took place on Tuesday. That left him free to talk to the Eagles on Thursday and the team announced that McAdoo did just that.

McAdoo is the fourth candidate to interview with the Eagles since they dispatched Chip Kelly before the season finale. Two candidates came from their 2015 coaching staff — interim coach/offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and running backs coach Duce Staley — and the other was Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

The Giants also announced that they completed an interview with Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin. Austin has also interviewed with the Dolphins and Browns this week.

Gase is expected to interview with the Giants on Friday with Jaguars offensive line coach/assistant head coach Doug Marrone due in over the weekend.

  1. I can’t see the Spags interview being anything. What would be the point of firing Coughlin to promote Spags (a failed head coach) to Head Coach, and keep McAdoo on as OC? What kind of change is that? I could be wrong but it really doesn’t add up. Gase and Marrone seem to have a bit more traction.

  2. The Rooney rule is the biggest farce and perpetration of an illusion that is to represent diversity that even Houdini couldn’t match the deception.

  3. Giants fans have convinced themselves that Bill Belichick’s deepest wish is to leave the Patriots and return to coach the Giants


    Just ask Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton as well as the writers for GiantsInsiders

    Bank on it – according to them

    Nope – Giants fans aren’t the least bit delusional

    I have a hard time justifying a great deal of hope that a new coach can make a dramatic improvement for the Giants when they will still be trying to do it using Reese’s pieces.
