Signs pointing to Matt Patricia as Giants coach

Signs pointing to Matt Patricia as Giants coach

It certainly looks like the New England Patriots will be losing their defensive coordinator.

But according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, it seems that "all signs" are pointing to Patricia being the man the New York Giants go after.

Patricia reportedly had interviews with the Giants, Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals last week, but seems to favor NY, according to multiple sources.

A report from Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News has revealed that New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the favorite to land the New York Giants head coaching job. Their first two titles were headlined by one of the greatest defensive players in National Football League history, linebacker Lawrence Taylor, who was supported by the likes of Giants legends like Carl Banks, Harry Carson and George Martin. Patricia also interviewed with the Arizona Cardinals. The 43-year-old joined the Patriots as an offensive assistant in 2004.




Fixing the offensive line and establishing a ground game in 2018 will enable Big Blue the ability to utilize their offensive weapons on the outside. He coached the linebackers (2006-2010) and then the safeties (2011) before officially being named the defensive coordinator in 2012. After the Bears hired Matt Nagy as head coach, and with the Giants interested in Patricia, McDaniels only has the Colts as his probable destination for a head coaching gig. Many believed he'd be headed to the Lions, but it has since been reported that he favors the Giants over the other two teams.

"The Giants are conducting their sixth and final interview with former Broncos RB coach Eric Studesville on Wednesday, but the feeling is Patricia and the Giants may have found themselves a flawless match, " the Daily News's Pat Leonard wrote.

King adds that Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur also remain very much in play.
