Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier previously met with new Giants General Manager Joe Schoen virtually. Frazier now is scheduled for an in-person interview Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

Schoen spent the past five years as the right-hand man of Bills General Manager Brandon Beane, so it’s no surprise Frazier and Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll are high on the Giants’ list.

The Giants have completed in-person interviews with Daboll and Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. They are scheduled to interview their current defensive coordinator, Patrick Graham, on Wednesday and former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores on Thursday.

Frazier has spent the past five seasons as Buffalo’s defensive coordinator.

He has head coaching experience, taking over the Vikings as interim coach in 2010 before getting the full-time job from 2011-13. He went 21-32-1 and made the postseason once in his tenure in Minnesota.

  1. Hate to be ageist, but I think Frazier is about my age (60s). I like the energy of guys in their 40s. Although look at Judge. Lots of energy, bad strategy. It looks like it will be the Buffalo coordinator that Schoen likes best.

  2. I guess the Giants won’t have to worry about Leslie calling a defense against Mahomes in the playoffs.

  3. As much as I like Frazier, he is not a head coach. And some of his stints as defensive coordinator have been disastrous.

  4. Offensive and defensive coordinators are like engineers. Head coaches are like managers. They’re two different skill sets.
    The situation with a 3 point lead with 13 seconds left and the opposing team having multiple timeouts remaining spoke volumes of his ability to manage.
