Now that the Giants have officially moved on from long-time head coach Tom Coughlin, speculation is already beginning to surface regarding potential candidates for the position.

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Saints HC Sean Payton is monitoring the Giants’ situation “very closely.”
  • Albert Breer expects Payton to have his eyes on the Giants’ job, assuming he leaves New Orleans. However, Breer wonders if Giants’ ownership will have reciprocal interest.
  • Breer also points out that Patriots OC Josh McDaniels has been committed to being patient and waiting for the right second chance. With this in mind, Breer wonders if the Giants’ job may qualify as such.

Payton is likely available if a team is willing to trade something close to a second-round pick for the head coach. On top of that, Payton has ties to the franchise, which could be appealing to ownership.

McDaniels has been a popular name in recent years and you would have to think he would at least consider the idea of taking the Giants’ job if they were interested.

Others have suggested OC Ben McAdoo as an internal candidate.
