The race to interview head coaching candidates is officially on and the Giants have reportedly submitted a couple of interview requests for Patriots assistants.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Giants, who hired Dave Gettleman as their General Manager last week, have requested interviews with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. Ben McAdoo was fired with four games left in the 2017 season.

McDaniels and Patricia have made the rounds in the past and are expected to be popular targets for teams looking for coaches again this offseason. The Colts are reportedly interested in speaking to McDaniels while Patricia is thought to be a candidate in Detroit.

With the Patriots on a bye before the divisional round of the playoffs, both McDaniels and Patricia can interview this week and a second interview could take place once the Patriots are eliminated or in the gap before the Super Bowl.

  1. Both won’t win as Head Coaches without Mr. Bill and Brady.. How many times will we see coaches out of the Belichick tree fail in the NFL when they go elsewhere? Well its at
    least not Spags for Giant fans.

  2. Charlie Weis is available too. This is stupid. Sean McVay came from the Redskins. When’s the last time they won anything> Mike Zimmer came from the Bengals. When’s the last time they won anything? The Texans have an ex-Patriots’ coach. He just finished a 4-12 season. You wonder how the owners of some of these teams ever made a penny in business.

    The Giants have beaten the Pats twice in super bowl.

    And other than feeding your envy and jealousy fueled Pats obsession this bears on their current hiring situation in what way?
    It’s hard to see Mara hiring Patricia to coach one of Goodell’s pet teams.

  4. .
    The Giants are apparently going to draft a first round QB. McDaniels work with Tom Brady is beyond reproach.
    .

  5. My guess is they want McDaniels to prove he can coach the team first, and then Gettleman will retire in a few years (he is 66 I think)and McDaniels will have the opportunity to be his own GM like Belichick.

    Yep they did. Thanks for sharing the only two bright spots in their last 25 years. They were also home watching the 5 other times.

  7. Why would either Patricia or McDaniels even consider the Giants? They have no QB, are dysfunctional in the locker room and pretty much awful in general. That’s not changing any time soon regardless of who gets that job.

    =========

    Because (1) the Giants will either draft, sign or acquire a new QB to replace Eli; (2) Gettleman will purge the Giants roster of locker room cancers; (3) as bad as NY was, they’ll be on an upward trend now. The NFL gives any team the chance for a quick turnaround.
