Giants likely to name Jim Schwartz next head coach

David Shaw Stanford Cardinals Football

Schwartz has an extensive history as a defensive coordinator. Schwartz, now the defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, is expected to interview with the Giants next week when Philly has its first-round playoff bye.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said Sunday that Schwartz is considered one of the favorites - if not the favorite - to land the Giants job.

Schwartz was 29-51 in Detroit. Before coaching Detroit, Schwartz spent 10 years with the Tennessee Titans, serving as defensive coordinator for eight of those seasons. Any other potential candidates, like offensive coordinator Frank Reich and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, would be permitted to interview this week and this week only until the Eagles were eliminated from the postseason.

The Bears, Colts, Bengals, Lions and Cardinals also could be searching for head coaches.

John Fox not likely to return to Chicago Bears after season
Despite the minus-11 temperature outside at the start of the game, all fans were required to open their coats for inspection. Jordan Howard has rushed for over 1,000 yards and is a power back who has nine touchdowns on the ground this year.

Patricia interviewed with the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. "You answer it and say, 'No, ' then people ..." His defensive acumen has never been in question.

The Eagles rank fifth overall in yards allowed, including first against the run and 20th against the pass. Doug Pederson has given him autonomy over the defense and they appear to work well together.

The Eagles scratched safety Rodney McLeod, cornerback Jalen Mills, running back Jay Ajayi, linebacker Nigel Bradham, defensive end Brandon Graham, defensive tackle Tim Jernigan and defensive end Derek Barnett.

Schwartz got his start in the National Football League as a personnel scout with the Browns under current Patriots head coach and former Giants defensive coordinator Bill Belichick. The Eagles would likely want a coordinator with experience running a 4-3 one-gap scheme.
