Giants consider Eagles DC Jim Schwartz favorite for coaching job, report says

Jim Schwartz Detroit Lions

The Giants, who are 2-13 and vying for the No. 2 pick in the National Football League draft entering Sunday's season finale against the Washington Redskins, fired coach Ben McAdoo after Week 13.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, current Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is the favorite to land in NY.

ESPN reports that the Giants will interview Schwartz next week while the Eagles are on their first-round playoff bye.

Some thought with the Giants hiring general manager Dave Gettleman on Friday, the Patriots' coordinators would not be candidates for their head coaching vacancy, but apparently that is not the case.

The 2-13 Giants fired Ben McAdoo after a Week 13 loss to the Raiders, shortly after McAdoo presided over a decision to start Geno Smith at quarterback and end Eli Manning's streak of consecutive starts at 2010.

Schwartz, 51, checks the experience box that co-owner John Mara emphasized as a prerequisite as the Giants try to avoid a repeat of McAdoo's disastrous tenure. "It's not impossible for you to succeed without that, but I think the more experience that that individual has as either a head coach or as a coordinator on either side of the ball, I think is very important". In five seasons with the Lions, he went 29-51 and made the playoffs once. NY has since been led by Steve Spagnuolo on an interim basis.

Schwartz was unavailable for comment before the Eagles were to face the Cowboys in Sunday's season finale. Myers also notes that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia are favorites along with Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien (should he be fired) to land the Giants' job.
