Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports that new Giants HC Joe Judge was hoping to interview Bills OC Brian Daboll for their offensive coordinator vacancy.
However, the Bills denied the Giants permission to meet with Dabell.
According to Vacchiano, Daboll was atop Judge’s wish list upon landing the Giants’ job.
Judge and Daboll worked together while they were with the Patriots.
The Giants have interviewed Mike Shula and former Cowboys HC Jason Garrett for their offensive coordinator vacancy and Vacchiano says the belief is that Judge will hire someone within the next day or two.
Daboll interviewed for the Browns’ head-coaching job.
Daboll, 44, began his NFL coaching career in 1997 with Williams & Mary. He spent a few years at Michigan State before being hired by the Patriots in 2000 as a defensive coaching assistant.
Daboll worked his way up to WRs coach before departing for a job with the Jets and eventually landing the offensive coordinator job in 2009. After short stints with the Browns, Dolphins, Chiefs and Patriots before Alabama hired him as their offensive coordinator.
From there, Daboll joined the Bills as their offensive coordinator for the 2018 season.
In 2019, the Bills’ offense ranked No. 24 in total yards, No. 23 in points scored, No. 8 in rushing yards and No. 26 in passing yards.
