New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, though linked to the New York Giants' job, is likely to become the next head coach of the Detroit Lions, league sources told ESPN. Patricia, 43, and the Lions still need to agree to the contract details after the Patriots' season ends. Assuming the two sides can do that, Patricia would be reunited with former Patriots personnel man and current Lions general manager Bob Quinn. There was no one the Lions interviewed who had more of a pre-established connection with Quinn than Patricia. Detroit publicly announced interviews with six candidates for the job: Patricia, Houston defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel, Green Bay associate head coach

A burly, 43-year-old former small-college football player, who sports a big, bushy beard on his face, a backward hat on his head and a No. 2 pencil in his ear, appears to be the linchpin of the NFL coaching carrousel, the belle of the ball who controls the fates of multiple franchises. Oh, yeah, and Matt Patricia also studied aeronautical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. “I am an engineer by trade,” Patricia, New England’s defensive coordinator, told Yahoo Sports last year.

Signs reportedly are pointing to New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia becoming the next head coach of the New York Giants. Peter King of TheMMQB.com reported that while the Detroit Lions want to hire the 43-year-old Patricia to fill their head-coaching vacancy, Patricia favors the Giants. Patricia and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels interviewed separately on Friday in Foxborough, Mass., with a group from the Giants led by president and co-owner John Mara, new general manager Dave Gettleman and assistant general manager Kevin Abrams.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have seemingly wrapped up their first round of interviews for a new coach. The Giants talked to former Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville on Wednesday. The 50-year-old was supposed to

Former Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians sparked Nick Saban-to-the-NFL rumors when he said the legendary Alabama coach "covets" the New York Giants coaching job. Less than 24 hours after the Crimson Tide came back from a 13-point second-half deficit to stun Georgia 26-23 in overtime in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night, Saban's name has surfaced again for job openings around the NFL. Arians, who retired after the 2017 season, told Colin Cowherd on FS1 that he wouldn't be surprised if Saban is interested in returning to the NFL on one condition.

OK, no matter how unlikely, let's say Gary Myers is right and Bill Belichick does wind up with New York Giants, he better take it easy on them. It's too strict," the Giants safety told the New York Post about the legendary Patriots coach. Landon Collins on Bill Belichick: "The way he runs his organization, I've been through that process.

Bruce Arians has been retired for all of a week, but he’s already discussing other head coaching vacancies. Arians isn’t interested in filling any himself, but he believes the New York Giants would be ideal for Alabama head coach Nick Saban. “It wouldn’t surprise me,” Arians said Tuesday on The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians intensified the Nick Saban-to-the-NFL rumors Tuesday when he said the Alabama head coach "covets" the New York Giants job. Arians was asked on The Herd with Colin Cowherd if he thought Saban would consider a move to the NFL after winning his sixth national championship Monday — tying Alabama legend Bear Bryant for the most in college football history. "It wouldn't surprise me," Arians said.

The New York Giants have interviewed Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks for their vacant head coaching job. The 48-year-old Wilks met with co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch, new general manager Dave Gettleman and assistant general manager Kevin Abrams at the team's headquarters on Tuesday, two days after the Panthers were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by New Orleans.

But even with that success, Brady is still nagged by the shocking Super Bowl loss his team suffered in 2008, when the Pats lost to the New York Giants. The New York Times published a report on Tuesday about a documentary series, Tom vs. Time, that details Brady's fight against aging, the infamous Super Bowl loss and more. The Times story refrenced a scene in which Brady studies film tape, not of the prior week's game, but the 2008 Super Bowl in which the Giants—with the help of a notorious "helmet catch"—spoiled the Patriots historic perfect season. The article, written by Mark Leibovich, describes the 40-year-old quarterback watching a computer screen, poring over the minute details of multiple
