Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Giants have requested permission to interview Ravens DC Don “Wink” Martindale for their head-coaching job.
Should Martindale land a head-coaching position this offseason, Rapoport says he would try to bring LSU offensive guru Joe Brady with him as coordinator.
Here’s the updated list of requested interviews for the Giants’ job:
- Patriots OC Josh McDaniels (NFLTR)
- Chiefs OC Eric Bienemy (NFLTR)
- Cowboys passing game coordinator/DBs coach Kris Richard (NFLTR)
- Mike McCarthy (NFLTR)
- Ravens DC Don “Wink” Martindale
Martindale, 56, began his coaching career in 1986 as the defensive coordinator at Defiance. He later took his first NFL coaching job with the Raiders in 2004.
After a few years with the Broncos, Martindale joined the Ravens as their linebackers coach and was eventually promoted to defensive coordinator in 2018.
In 2019, the Ravens’ defense ranked No. 4 best in yards allowed, No. 3 in points allowed, No. 5 in rushing yards allowed and No. 6 in passing yards allowed.
