Matt Patricia To The NY Giants Looking More and More Likely

Matt Patricia To The NY Giants Looking More and More Likelyā€¯

The New England Patriots defensive coordinator was thought to be a sure-thing to end up the Detroit Lions head coach, according reports. Get the app and get the game.

Earlier, it was reported that Patricia might join the Lions as head coach [VIDEO], replacing Jim Caldwell, who was sacked after the team missed the playoffs. However, Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported Wednesday that he's heard Patricia favors the Giants job.

Patricia was on the sidelines for both of them, first as the Patriots' linebackers coach and then as their safeties coach. Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel, Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Green Bay Packers associate head coach Winston Moss and current offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter have interviewed for the job.

Have the Giants already made their decision on a new head coach? In fact, there are indications he prefers the Giants to the Lions.

While the Giants look to have their man, they will not be able to officially sign Patricia until the Patriots season ends, which could be as late as February 5, the day after Super Bowl LII. 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.

However, it's Patricia, a NY native and former offensive lineman, that is believed to be favored by new general manager David Gettleman who, according to the Daily News, is keen on fixing the Giants' offensive line and improving the franchise's culture.

Although the Giants and Patricia cannot make any type of formal agreement until the Patriots' season is over, the spot can essentially be held for him, like the Falcons did for Dan Quinn and more recently the 49ers did for Kyle Shanahan. The longer he, or another available candidate, doesn't fill that job, the more nervous the Lions front office should feel.
