Matt Patricia destined to be New York Giants head coach?

Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is the frontrunner for the New York Giants head coaching vacancy, according to a report by the New York Daily News. But he also met with the New York Giants last week, and now it appears Patricia is not only the favorite for that job, but prefers them over Detroit.

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.

Players love Carolina defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who interviewed with the Giants on Tuesday, and he could be the calming guy to fix a divided and mercenary NY team.

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 news was that the Patriots believe he will be leaving, regardless of where he ends up".

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).
