Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Giants and new HC Joe Judge have requested permission to interview Dolphins defensive coordinator Patrick Graham for the same role.
According to Garafolo, the expectation is that Miami will grant the Giants permission to meet with Graham.
Graham previously worked with Judge while they were together with the Patriots.
Graham, 40, began his coaching career at Wagner as a graduate assistant back in 2002. He later spent three years at Richmond before landing his first NFL coaching job with the Patriots in 2009 as a defensive coaching assistant.
After seven years in New England, the Giants hired Graham as their defensive coach in 2016. Graham joined the Packers a year later as their LBs coach and run game coordinator before taking the Dolphins’ defensive coordinator job last year.
In 2019, the Dolphins’ defense ranked No. 30 in yards allowed, No. 32 in points allowed, No. 27 in rushing yards allowed and No. 26 in passing yards allowed.
