Giants interview Matt Patricia, set to meet with Josh McDaniels

Giants interview Matt Patricia, set to meet with Josh McDaniels

The Lions announced Friday night that they had completed an interview with Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia for their head coaching vacancy.

The Giants (3-13) also plan to interview Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels talks with quarterback Tom Brady.

Patricia, who has an aeronautical engineering degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, interviewed with the Browns in 2016 and the Rams and Chargers past year about their head coaching jobs.

McDaniels has coached under Bill Belichick with the Patriots for 14 of the last 17 seasons.

The Patriots led the National Football League in total yards (394.2 a game) in 2017 and were second in passing yards (276.1) and scoring (28.6 points-per-game).

After three seasons as New England's offensive coordinator, McDaniels left to become Broncos head coach in 2009. He had an 8-8 record in his first season and was sacked late in his second with a 3-9 record, finishing 11-17 overall.

Steve Spagnuolo, the Giants defensive coordinator and interim head coach for the last four games this season after McAdoo was sacked, was the first to interview with Mara, Gettleman and Abrams.

Spagnuolo interviewed for the Giants job on Wednesday.

The Chicago Bears front office had a very busy day Friday. He will meet with the team next week. In 2017, Brady was elected to his ninth Pro Bowl in his 10 seasons with McDaniels serving as his position coach. The 2017 season was his sixth in his second stint as New England's offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.

Interviews are planned this weekend with Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

Despite the Patriots ranking 29th in yards allowed, they still managed to allow the fifth-fewest points in the league and have ranked in the top 10 in fewest points allowed throughout his tenure as defensive coordinator. Only one of the Patriots' final 12 opponents scored more than 24 points. In those nine years, McDaniels has guided New England's offense to seven top-10 rankings, including the No. 1 spot in the National Football League in 2007, 2012 and again this season when the unit averaged 394.2 yards per game.

Patricia originally joined the Patriots in 2004 as a coaching assistant and the next season he served as assistant offensive line coach. Patricia's first coaching experience came in 1996, when he served as a graduate assistant at RPI, where he was a center and guard. He worked as an aeronautical engineer for two years before returning to coaching at Amherst in 1999.
