Matt Patricia Reportedly The Favorite To Land Giants Head Coaching Job

The former RPI offensive lineman graduated with an aeronautical engineering degree and as Pat Leonard of the Daily News wrote, "A rocket scientist has blasted his way into the lead to be the Giants' next head coach". But a favorite has reportedly emerged through the interview process.

But, Quinn and the Lions are not the only team interested in hiring Patricia, and according to a report from Peter King of Sports Illustrated, Patricia may not even be interested in taking the head coaching gig in Detroit.

Patricia had been rumored to be a front-runner for the Lions' coaching job, but the Daily News reported Patricia-to-Detroit is "not a done deal". Offense scores points, defense wins championships. He's won three Super Bowls with Belichick and company during his time with the team. "So, I truly believe in that".

The Patriots defense led the National Football League in fewest points allowed last season.

If Patricia does indicate privately he will go to the Giants, the Lions will not lack for options to hire as their next head coach.

Weather Forecast: Active weather this week
High pressure in the Middle Atlantic will bring partly cloudy skies to the Valley into early Wednesday afternoon. Thursday night , the low will be around 10 with partly cloudy skies, according to the weather service.


The NFL's tampering policy prevents the Giants and Patricia, if he is indeed the pick, from agreeing to a contract until after the Patriots' season is over.

However, it's Patricia, a NY native and former offensive lineman, that is believed to be favored by new general manager David Gettleman who, according to the Daily News, is keen on fixing the Giants' offensive line and improving the franchise's culture. The Bears hired Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.

That being said, it's important to note that Patricia is from NY and family could be a deciding factor.

Patricia, 43, had interviews with the Giants, Detroit Lions, and the Arizona Cardinals last weekend. He was an assistant offensive line coach in 2005 before moving to the defense.
