Can someone explain why we are interviewing him?
Rumor has it

The Giants are thinking about hiring a new Head Coach.

Awaiting confirmation...
He's served as an interim head coach and assistant head coach.

Known as energetic and was well-respected by his players. Not the longest resume among the candidates, but it's not like he's completely unknown.
Crazy thought  
Andy in Boston : 1/9/2018 10:25 pm : link
But he could be an offensive coordinator candidate if we hire Wilks.
He coached Tiki Barber here with the Giants...

...and then in Buffalo coached some quality RBs including Lynch.

Studesville was the interim head coach for the Broncos after they fired ... Josh McDaniels.
Nice guy but..

Head coach material?
Reasons why they might be talking to him  
blueblood : 1/9/2018 11:06 pm : link
1) There is a head coach opening

2) 20 years of coaching experience. He has been an assistant head coach and an interim head coach. He has worked under several different head coaches.

3) He has worked with McDaniels. He might shed some light there

4) He was formerly with the Giants, so they might be giving him an interview to help him know the process. Keep in mind it was Steve Wilks interview with the Rams that put him on several teams radar this year.

5) Its possible that they might bring him back to fulfill another coaching position. He has done quite well with running backs during his tenure in the NFL.

I donít know if #5 makes much sense. The assistant coaching staff is usually determined by the head coach, so Ownership and GM interviewing him would do nothing in terms of landing him a role as an OC or RB coach on whoever is named HCís staff.

Good post. I hope #5 is the real reason. Just my opinion
No, because we're just fans and don't have all of the information.

I'm sure we'll find out eventually, if he is hired though. If not, then it won't matter.
Due diligence

And at least giving the appearance of being open to all candidates unlike the Raiders who went straight to plan A without the cursory cattle call.
Everyone can be a general but not everyone can be George Patton

Maybe thatís why!!
It is possible that the Giants see Studesville  
Section331 : 1/10/2018 9:48 am : link
as a candidate for another role, and want to use the interview to learn more about him. It isn't unheard of. Cleveland interviewed McAdoo for the HC position when he was a TE coach for GB. It can be a good way to get intel on a guy you don't know well.
