Matt Patricia To The NY Giants Looking More and More Likely

Many believed Patricia would be the Lions' new head coach because he and Detroit GM Bob Quinn, a former Patriots exec, would keep it in the family as products of New England, too.

Patricia might be the right fit for the Giants, but fixing New York's offense has to remain a priority.

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". Leonard said Patricia is expected to be named as the next coach of the Giants, replacing the fired Ben McAdoo. Gettleman was sacked as Panthers GM over the summer, just prior to Wilks' only season as defensive coordinator, but their time in Carolina overlapped while Wilks was the defensive backs coach under defensive back Sean McDermott, who left for the Buffalo Bills head coaching job.

However, this is a considerable turn from a recent report that suggested Patricia would likely replace Jim Caldwell and join the Detroit Lions. In 2005, he became assistant offensive line coach before he moved to coaching linebackers from 2006 to 2010. The performance of this year's group has been remarkable.

The Giants cannot officially come to terms on a contract with Patricia until New England's season comes to an end. The fact that the defense did this without Dont'a Hightower and an inexperienced front seven also speaks to the job Patricia did. 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.

They have to have a plan in place in case the waiting game doesn't net the candidate they want, so which coach could be a Plan B for the Lions? The Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears and the Giants interviewed McDaniels, while the Arizona Cardinals interviewed Flores.
