The New York Giants are interviewing candidates at offensive coordinator after Kevin Gilbride decided to “retire” (we all know that Gilbride was going to be fired anyway, as he was one of the worst coordinators in the NFL and drew the ire of fans for poor play-calling). They have a few candidates in mind, and there’s a chance of a reunion with former quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan. Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains is also a candidate, and the Giants have two interviews slated today.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Houston Texans quarterbacks coach Karl Dorrell is interviewing with the Giants today, and there’s some smoke there. Dorrell is a solid quarterbacks coach, but I don’t view him as a top candidate at all. It’s interesting to see that the vast majority of candidates the Giants are looking at work closely with QBs, and the other interview set to take place for the Giants today definitely falls into that category.
Coaching Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers offense is a great way to make a name for yourself, and it’s not just the wide receivers that benefit from playing with the game’s best quarterback. QBs coach Ben McAdoo received a head coaching interview with the Cleveland Browns, and Rapoport reports that the Giants will be interviewing him tonight. He’s a big-time candidate for the Giants OC opening, so I would watch closely for the results of his interview.
