'All signs' pointing to Matt Patricia as Giants head coach

Is Matt Patricia set to spurn the Lions for the Giants?

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".

According to the Daily News' Pat Leonard, "all signs are pointing" to Big Blue hiring New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia.

King said if the Giants decide to hire him, it could give Houston Texans Defensive Coordinator Mike Vrabel the Lions' gig.

However, this is a considerable turn from a recent report that suggested Patricia would likely replace Jim Caldwell and join the Detroit Lions.


This certainly doesn't meant he Lions have lost out or will lose out on their top choice. The NFL coaching carousel sure is spinning with Patricia.

Patricia, 43, as the Daily News has written a few times the last couple days, is not a done deal to the Detroit Lions as several reports had claimed coming out of his interviews last weekend with the Giants, Lions and Cardinals (oh my). If they end up interested enough to make an offer, that's where things could get interesting for the Lions. Many believed he'd be headed to the Lions, but it has since been reported that he favors the Giants over the other two teams. In fact, there are indications he prefers the Giants to the Lions.

Patricia would be the first defensive-minded coach to take over the Giants since Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Parcells initial retirement in 1990. The Giants are among the teams interviewing Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks this week, with whom they have an existing connection through new general manager Dave Gettleman.

The Giants cannot officially come to terms on a contract with Patricia until New England's season comes to an end. Beginning his tenure in New England in 2004, Patricia was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2012.
