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".

On Wednesday, Leonard reported that "all signs" pointed to the Giants hiring the Super Bowl-winning defensive coordinator. Beginning his tenure in New England in 2004, Patricia was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2012. 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.

King adds that Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur also remain very much in play. During that span, NY has had five other coaches: Ray Handley (1991-92), Dan Reeves (1993-96), Jim Fassel (1197-2003), Tom Coughlin (2004-2015) and Ben McAdoo (2016-17).
