Recently, Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo confessed that he was “disappointed” that he wasn’t chosen to be the team’s head coach this offseason.
“I’m not going to lie to you,” Spagnuolo said. “I was disappointed I wasn’t the guy . . . but I’m not giving up on my dream of being a head coach…But I like [Ben McAdoo] a lot. It was two-fold. It didn’t happen, so it was a disappointment. But it’s always nice to be wanted.”
McAdoo was viewed as the favorite for the Giants’ job once the team parted ways with Tom Coughlin and it didn’t hurt that he came with the endorsement of quarterback Eli Manning. Spagnuolo, a high-respected defensive mind, is likely hoping for another head coaching opportunity down the line.

- Quarterback Jared Goff is also meeting with the Cowboys today, as Rapoport tweets. Goff may be a less likely candidate for the No. 4 overall pick as many expect Dallas to only entertain QBs in the later rounds. The Cal quarterback has a lot of hype behind him heading into the draft and, recently, one GM theorized that a team could trade up to No. 1 to draft him. As previously reported, Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch is also meeting with Dallas today.
