Giants coaching search is down to three

Giants coaching search is down to three

The next head coach of the Giants will be Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia or Pat Shurmur, with no surprise candidate looming, and at this point all three are very much in the mix.

Steve Wilks, the Panthers defensive coordinator, did not make the cut after the first round of interviews, according to someone with knowledge of the Giants thinking. Steve Spagnuolo, the Giants defensive coordinator, and Eric Studesville, the former Broncos running backs coach and assistant head coach, are not being considered for the head-coach position.

No doubt, co-owner John Mara, general manager Dave Gettleman and assistant general manager Kevin Abrams after the initial interviews established a pecking order. Co-owner Steve Tisch attended only the interview with Wilks, and so Tisch will be involved the next time the Giants get to sit down with whoever is determined to be the No. 1 candidate.

Shurmur is a viable option for the Cardinals head-coaching vacancy. Patricia was once considered the favorite to land the Lions job, and still might be. McDaniels and the Colts could be a match. There is competition for all three, and the Giants likely will have to wait things out. This is a difficult time, as all three are currently involved in the playoffs and the Giants cannot simply take the next step and meet again with either of the two Patriots coordinators or with Shurmur, the Vikings offensive coordinator.

The NFL has a tampering rule in place prohibiting teams from hiring a coach involved in the playoffs. The rule states, No contract shall be executed, and no agreement to execute a contract, or an announcement of a contract or of an agreement for employment, shall be permitted until after the conclusion of the employer clubs playing season.
