REPORT – BEN MCADOO AND DOUG MARRONE EARLY FAVORITES…
According to The New York Daily News, New York Giants Offensive Coordinator Ben McAdoo and Jacksonville Jaguars Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Line Coach Doug Marrone are the early favorites to become the next head coach of the New York Giants. McAdoo interviewed with the Giants on Tuesday and Marrone on Saturday.
The Daily News says that New York Giants Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and Detroit Lions Defensive Coordinator Teryl Austin are not likely to receive “serious consideration for the job.” Both interviewed with the Giants last Thursday.
The Giants will interview former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith, who will interview on Monday.
The Giants also interviewed Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase on Friday but he was hired by the Miami Dolphins as their next year head coach on Saturday. NJ.com and The Daily News reported that the Giants were also interested in Cincinnati Offensive Coordinator Hue Jackson, but he is reportedly on the verge of being hired by the San Francisco 49ers as their next head coach.
All interviews have been conducted by team President/CEO John Mara and Senior Vice President/General Manager Jerry Reese.
"I’m told Giants are searching for a proven head coach which right now in this climate of candidates really limits their options." @RapSheet
