Matt Patricia is one of the hottest names in the head coaching market.

The Feeling is Mutual According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, "all signs" show that the Giants seem to favor Patricia as well. The Patriots host the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs this Saturday.

Patricia has been with the Patriots since 2004, serving as an offensive assistant, and offensive line coach, linebackers coach, and safeties coach before being named their defensive coordinator in 2012. If the Giants give the nod to Patricia, Detroit could be Vrabel's job.

He would take over for Steve Spagnuolo, the Giants' interim head coach who stepped in after Ben McAdoo was sacked after Week 13 of a nightmare 2017 season. The Giants will hold their sixth and final interview with former Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville on Wednesday.

While Patricia, 43, doesn't have the head coaching experience Giants co-owner John Mara is seeking, he has been a part of three Super Bowl titles in New England, including two as defensive coordinator. The Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears and the Giants interviewed McDaniels, while the Arizona Cardinals interviewed Flores. "I was not reporting then, and am not reporting now, that the Lions will hire or are likely to hire Patricia".
