Giants head coaching job down to 2 candidates

Matt Patricia's defense gave up the fourth most yardage in the NFL this season but the fifth fewest points

With one of their three finalists evidently off the market - Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia will be the next head coach of the Lions, according to multiple reports on Sunday - and two others now coaching teams that remain alive in the postseason, the Giants have to be asking themselves whether they can afford to wait any longer to name the 18th head coach in franchise history.

New York Giants brass knows that Matt Patricia has experienced success as Bill Belichick's defensive coordinator.

Patricia has been with the Patriots since 2004, working as the defensive coordinator for the past six years.

Despite former offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo failing miserably as head coach, many folks believe the team needs help an offensive mind to fix their problems.

Rapoport said McDaniels has indicated to potential assistants to hold out for the Patriots season to be over.

Patricia was the hottest name on thecoaching market, and he really had his choice of where he wanted to go.

Along with the Lions, Patricia interviewed with the New York Giants on Friday and the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.

That teaching quality is something Patricia has brought to the National Football League, along with an insatiable desire to study opponents, which are valuable attributes in an assistant coach. And McDaniels had a rocky, turbulent tenure in his less than two full seasons as head coach of the Broncos.

One thing is for sure, the Patriots aren't going to be the same after this year. He spent one year there before taking two years off before moving on to Amherst college in 1999 as the defensive line coach.

Former New England defensive backs coach Eric Mangini also struggled with the Browns, adding records of 10-22 in Cleveland and a 23-25 record with the New York Jets to this list of awful leadership performances.

But Bob Quinn sees something different in Matt Patricia. Ezekiel Ansah will be a free agent, but you can bet the Lions will do everything in their power to retain him even if it means utilizing the franchise tag.

Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, 42, is a possibility given his seven years of overlap with Patricia in New England and the Crimson Tide's recent national championship win with a true freshman backup quarterback starting the second half.

"New York is NY; it's not an easy place to coach".

Over the weekend there were multiple reports indicating Matt Patricia will become the next coach of the Lions.
