Giants to hire Matt Patricia as head coach?

Giants to hire Matt Patricia as head coach?

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. But a favorite has reportedly emerged through the interview process.

And according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, "all signs are pointing" to Patricia being the next head coach of the Giants. The New England Patriots defensive coordinator is likely to leave the team this offseason and has already been strongly linked with the Detriot Lions' head coaching job. Offense scores points, defense wins championships. A onetime offensive assistant, he has been on the Patriots' coaching staff since 2004, a tenure that includes three Super Bowl victories. "So, I truly believe in that".

Although the Giants and Patricia cannot make any type of formal agreement until the Patriots' season is over, the spot can essentially be held for him, like the Falcons did for Dan Quinn and more recently the 49ers did for Kyle Shanahan.

"In fact, there are indications he prefers the Giants to the Lions". Despite a rocky start where the unit was ranked 31st in points allowed after four weeks, the Patriots led the National Football League in fewest points allowed from Week 5 to 17.

This is a significant development with ramifications across the league and in New England.

The NFL's tampering policy prevents the Giants and Patricia, if he is indeed the pick, from agreeing to a contract until after the Patriots' season is over.

Patricia and the Patriots face the Titans in the AFC Divisional Round on Saturday. Leonard suggests Patricia could hire Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll due to their time spent together in New England. Injuries to Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, Justin Pugh, and Weston Richburg clearly played a factor, but New York's offensive struggles date back to the start of the 2016 season.
