Matt Patricia destined to be New York Giants head coach?

Report: All signs point to Matt Patricia becoming next Giants head coach

It would also be a smart hire for the Giants.Despite reports that New England Patriots defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, was nearly a sure-bet to end up the Detroit Lions head coach, reports have emerged that Patricia actually favors the Giants opening.

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.

According to Peter King, Patricia actually favors the head coaching vacancy for the New York Giants over the Lions. Their first two titles were headlined by one of the greatest defensive players in National Football League history, linebacker Lawrence Taylor, who was supported by the likes of Giants legends like Carl Banks, Harry Carson and George Martin. The NFL coaching carousel sure is spinning with Patricia.

The Giants cannot officially come to terms on a contract with Patricia until New England's season comes to an end.

The New York Giants and newly appointed general manager Dave Gettleman continue to do their due diligence in the search for franchise's next head coach.

The former aeronautical engineer has led New England to a top ten defense in terms of points allowed in each season since being named defensive coordinator in 2012.

King adds that Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur also remain very much in play.

Pro Football Talk says Patricia has a great relationship with Lions GM Bob Quinn, who worked for the Patriots before coming to the Lions.

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.
