From Dan Duggan: Coaches Giants Have Interviewed Past 4 Yrs

Brown Recluse : 12/6/2019 6:50 pm
Dunno if this was already posted. Iíll delete if it was. What a garbage list of candidates.

Giants have had 2 HC searches in the past 4 years. Here's who they interviewed:
Shurmur
McAdoo
Spags x 2
Patricia
McDaniels
Wilks
Studesville
Marrone
Gase
M. Smith
T. Austin
If they're in the market again in a few weeks, need to reevaluate their process:
Isnít it important to note who they didnít interview  
twostepgiants : 12/6/2019 6:54 pm : link
Doug Pedersen
Frank Reich
Mike Vrbel

They were hired in the years we hired HCs and not even Interviewed.
pretty weak list  
Torrag : 12/6/2019 6:55 pm : link
The only guys on that list I'd interview are McDaniels, Patricia and Marrone. And I'd hope to have some better options than them to choose from.
Wasnít it reported  
McNally's_Nuts : 12/6/2019 6:55 pm : link
that Reese wasnít exactly enamored with McAdoo during the interview process and that Mike Smith really surprised the teams brass?

Then Coughlin had the sham interview with the Eagles and Giants panicked
Yeah this is how you know thereís a big issue  
Oscar : 12/6/2019 6:56 pm : link
A smart organization would do a serious self-assessment and think about how theyíre coming up with candidates. Thereís no evidence the Giants will do that unfortunately.

That is the more damning list. How did we not talk to Reich?
You canít hire good coaches if

You dont interview them and only interview the bad ones.

I recall the old "Fire Shurmur" article that was posted here a while back from some Cleveland source and something it said about Pat. Some of these guys are better at interviewing for jobs than they are at actually doing the job.

Nagy sucks imo. He drives me nuts every time I watch the Bears. Trubisky running around and picking up firsts doesn't make him a better coach after last night.
Steve Spagnuolo  
AdamBrag : 12/6/2019 7:51 pm : link
I would not be surprised if they interview him again.
Mara needs to take a serious look in the mirror.

I tend to look at it this way - Nagy, somehow, is 19-10 with Mitch Trubisky as his QB.

And he didn't draft Trubisky, he inherited him.

I think that "somehow" is called defense.

We've interviewed for HC twice already! He's DC in a much better situation right now (KC). I would be more surprised if we don't interview him.

This is by far the biggest indictment of the organization over the past 4 years post-Coughlin and the very thing Tisch needs to be "very honest about" with Mara. Pretty damning to see who they spoke to and who they didn't.

Don't recall that Gase was brought in but wow that list is poor Mcdaniels is the only one that is still interesting.
the damage these fools have done  
mdc1 : 12/6/2019 9:57 pm : link
is likely unrecoverable for some time unless they bring in a HC that can fix it. I think they just pick a name they like and roll the dice. So much different than when they really wanted TC. If you look at the hires of the past, all pretty much terrible, except for Parcells, TC, and maybe Fassel

Peterson is a clod. You can put his Super Bowl. Etc to Barry Switzerís.

The other two should have been. I wouldnít trust Mara and Tisch to hire a landscaper

Frank Reich only got hired in Indy because McDaniels spurned them. Did not hear his name tied to any other jobs. That being said, a lot of credit belongs to Matt Eberflus, their DC, who also developed a number of LB with Dallas.
It's as much about the INTERVIEWERS as it is the interviewees.

Yup. Mara reign has to end. They need a real football operation. Theyíre in the NFL not running a deli. Canít just hire family to make decisions.

idiotsavant : 12/7/2019 8:38 am : link
This AM broadly paraphrasing, how it is coming off the bench:

"Well , they asked me, did I have any interest in coaching in the future, and, no, I have no interest in that end of things, but I wish them the best".

Even Eli Manning won't interview here!

think Nagy got the job b/c of Mitch.

Those two and the GM are joined at the hip so to speak.
