Eric Studesville to interview with Giants Wednesday

The Giants were supposed to interview former Broncos assistant head coach/running backs coach Eric Studesville last Thursday, but a snowstorm forced them to change plans and reschedule the meeting.

It will now take place on Wednesday. Studesville, who also served as interim head coach of the Broncos in 2010, spent three years as the Giants’ running backs coach from 2001-03 when Jim Fassel was the team’s head coach.

Studesville is the sixth candidate to interview with the Giants, joining their interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. They asked for permission to interview Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, but nothing has been scheduled.

Unless they revisit Schwartz or something changes to make fanciful interest from Bill Belichick/Nick Saban a reality, it seems likely that the team’s next head coach is coming from that group.

  1. I’d like the hire to be either McDaniels or Wilks.

    Maybe we get Studdsville on the staff in another capacity. He is a good Football Coach. He did good work with the GIANTS RBs when he was here.

  2. I still cannot believe they didnt hire Wilks, letting him get out of their building without a deal. Arizona will now likely Wilks today I believe, Wilks is the best candidate of all the candidates and likely to be the most successful.

  3. I agree with hawkkiller…..should’ve grabbed Wilks when they could’ve. Could get stiffed by both New England boys and wind up with # 4 on the depth chart, whoever that is. Patience isn’t always a virtue.

  4. I don’t believe Studesville will get the HC job, but PFT didn’t list his accomplishments at all. Studesville was a beloved coach in Denver. Career coaching highlights: Revived Willis MaGahee’s career, coached up Knowshon Moreno to a 1,000 yard season, and turned undrafted CJ Anderson into a solid NFL RB. That’s more than most of the other coaches he’s competing against can say. He should not leave the Giants building without a job in some capacity.
