Pats DC Matt Patricia reportedly prefers Giants head coaching job

Pats DC Matt Patricia reportedly prefers Giants head coaching job

According to the New York Daily News, all signs point to Patricia becoming the next coach of the Giants.

While Leonard did not get into too many specifics as to which signs were pointing to Patricia heading to the Big Apple, he did point out that Patricia would prefer to go to the Giants over the Lions. The NFL coaching carousel sure is spinning with Patricia.

But the Daily News reported Wednesday "that all signs are pointing" to Patricia taking over the coaching reins in NY and that "there are indications he prefers the Giants to the Lions". He also thinks Patricia and new general manager Dave Gettleman would be on the same page in terms of putting that strong defensive team together.




Over the past decade, the Giants have won another two champions as their defense did the unthinkable: Stop future Hall of Famer and Patriots legend Tom Brady twice while allowing just 31 combined points to the high-powered New England offense in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI. Meantime, here's what Lions fans are saying to the news.

As one of the NFL's most respected defensive coordinators, Patricia would harness that talent back to an elite status.The Giants should be better offensively in 2018, as well.

He would take over for Steve Spagnuolo, the Giants' interim head coach who stepped in after Ben McAdoo was sacked after Week 13 of a nightmare 2017 season. The Patriots will play the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs on Saturday. After the Bears hired Matt Nagy as head coach, and with the Giants interested in Patricia, McDaniels only has the Colts as his probable destination for a head coaching gig.
