Giants owner Steve Tisch says that he hopes to have a coach in place by the end of the week, Jordan Raanan of the Star-Ledger tweets. Tisch added that he has been talking to GM Jerry Reese every day about the team’s pending decision.
So far, as PFR’s 2016 NFL Head Coaching Search Tracker shows, the Giants have interviewed offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, Lions DC Teryl Austin, Jaguars offensive line coach Doug Marrone, ex-Falcons head coach Mike Smith, and Panthers DC Sean McDermott. Adam Gase also interviewed with the team before taking the Dolphins job. The interview many have been keeping an eye on, however, is slated to take place towards the end of the week when the Giants meet with Hue Jackson.
The Giants have been searching for a head coach since January 4th when they announced that they would be parting ways with Tom Coughlin. Coughlin, who previously served as head coach of the Jaguars, led the Giants to a 102-90 record during his 12 seasons with the team. He also added eight victories in 11 postseason contests, with all of those wins coming in two seasons – 2007 and 2011 – during which the Giants won the Super Bowl.
