STEVE TISCH: GIANTS HOPE TO HAVE NEW COACH BY END OF WEEK…
New York Giants Chairman and Executive Vice President Steve Tisch told reporters at an NFL meeting on Tuesday night that the team hopes to have selected its new head coach by the end of this week. All New York Giants coaching interviews have been jointly conducted by team President/CEO John Mara and Senior Vice President/General Manager Jerry Reese.

“We’ve seen about six great candidates,” Tisch said. “John and I hope to resolve it by the end of the week, and I think we can… I’ve been talking to Jerry every day. John and Jerry have been, you know, handling the actual on-site interviews and I’ve been brought up to date every day. John and I are going to have a long conversation (on Wednesday).”

The Giants have interviewed six candidates:

  • New York Giants Offensive Coordinator Ben McAdoo
  • New York Giants Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo
  • Detroit Lions Defensive Coordinator Teryl Austin
  • Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Line Coach Doug Marrone
  • Former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith

Gase has already been hired by the Dolphins.

“I have a couple candidates who I think will be potentially really good head coaches, but I want to reserve expressing my thoughts to you until John, Jerry and I have a chance to talk later in the week,” Tisch said.

HUE JACKSON HIRED BY BROWNS…
The New York Giants interview of Bengals Offensive Coordinator Hue Jackson never occurred. Jackson, who reportedly was set to interview with the Giants on Wednesday, was hired by the Cleveland Browns as their new head coach on Wednesday instead. Jackson had also interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers.

GIANTS POSITION COACHES INTERVIEWING ELSEWHERE…
Although all of the New York Giants assistant coaches have 1-year remaining on their contracts, the team has apparently given permission to some, if not all, of them to interview elsewhere.

  • Wide Receivers Coach Sean Ryan is interviewing with the Houston Texans for the same position.
  • Offensive Line Coach Pat Flaherty has interviewed with the Indianapolis Colts and Minnesota Vikings for the same position.
  • Linebackers Coach Jim Herrmann has interviewed with the Indianapolis Colts for the same position. The Colts hired Herrmann on Wednesday.

(The Hue Jackson interview has reportedly been moved up to Wednesday now).

GIANTS TO INTERVIEW HUE JACKSON ON WEDNESDAY…
According to multiple press reports, the New York Giants will interview Cincinnati Bengals Offensive Coordinator Hue Jackson on Wednesday for the team’s vacant head coaching position. All New York Giants coaching interviews have been jointly conducted by team President/CEO John Mara and Senior Vice President/General Manager Jerry Reese.

The 50-year old Jackson was interviewed by the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns on Sunday for their head coaching vacancies. The Browns are said to be very serious contenders for his services but the 49ers interest has apparently waned.

As previously reported, the Giants have already interviewed the following six candidates:

  • 38-year old New York Giants Offensive Coordinator Ben McAdoo, who interviewed on January 5th. McAdoo has also interviewed with the Eagles.
  • 56-year old New York Giants Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who interviewed on January 7th.
  • 50-year old Detroit Lions Defensive Coordinator Teryl Austin, who interviewed on January 7th. Austin has also interviewed with the Browns.
  • 37-year old Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase, who interviewed on January 8th, but was hired by the Miami Dolphins as their new head coach the following day.
  • 51-year old Jacksonville Jaguars Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Line Coach Doug Marrone, who interviewed on January 9th. Marrone has also interviewed with the Browns.
  • 56-year old former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith, who interviewed on January 11th.

PAT FLAHERTY INTERVIEWS WITH VIKINGS…
FOXSports is reporting that New York Giants Offensive Line Coach Pat Flaherty interviewed with the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday for their vacant offensive line coach position. The Indianapolis Colts have also expressed interest in Flaherty and he may have interviewed with the Colts last week. Since Flaherty is still under contract with the Giants, teams must receive the Giants permission to interview him.

JIM HERRMANN INTERVIEWS WITH COLTS…
FOXSports is reporting that New York Giants Linebackers Coach Jim Herrmann is interviewing with the Indianapolis Colts for their vacant linebacker coach position. Since Herrmann is still under contract with the Giants, teams must receive the Giants permission to interview him.

49ERS INTERVIEW TOM COUGHLIN…
According to multiple press reports, the San Francisco 49ers interviewed Tom Coughlin on Tuesday for their head coaching vacancy. Coughlin resigned as the Giants head coach last week. He interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday. Since Coughlin still has one year on his contract with the Giants, other teams must receive permission from the Giants to interview him.
