Is Matt Patricia set to spurn the Lions for the Giants?

Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia

On Wednesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reported "all signs are pointing to" Patricia as the Giants' next head coach.

It was assumed Patricia was destined for the Lions, but in recent days reports started to come out that Patricia preferred the Giants job.

Pro Football Talk says Patricia has a great relationship with Lions GM Bob Quinn, who worked for the Patriots before coming to the Lions.

While Patricia is favored to be chosen by the Giants, the Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals are also interested in Patricia, whose calling card is a wild-man appearance featuring a bushy beard and backward hat.




The Lions are a bit of a red-headed step child in the National Football League, and the Detroit Free Press has pointed out Patricia spurning them for another head coaching job would be nothing new.

However, it's Patricia, a NY native and former offensive lineman, that is believed to be favored by new general manager David Gettleman who, according to the Daily News, is keen on fixing the Giants' offensive line and improving the franchise's culture. Patricia boasts a strong pedigree as the architect of a defense that's helped New England win two of the last three Super Bowls, though, and there's plenty of buzz surrounding him in the Tri-State area.

King also offered his take on McDaniels, writing that the Indianapolis Colts would be a "good fit" for the offensive coordinator. Leonard said Patricia is expected to be named as the next coach of the Giants, replacing the fired Ben McAdoo. The Patriots will play the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs on Saturday.

Maybe Matt Patricia isn't going to Detroit after all.
