When teams win, they usually get raided.
The Giants didn't win anything this year. Yet that isn't stopping some teams from sniffing around East Rutherford for candidates to fill their various (or in some cases soon-to-be) vacancies.
The latest is Marc Ross, who will interview for the GM job in Seattle next week according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter on Twitter. Ross has been the Giants' director of college scouting for the last two seasons and under his watch the team drafted Kenny Phillips and Hakeem Nicks in their first rounds (as well as Terrell Thomas, Mario Manningham and Will Beatty on the plus side; Jonathan Goff, Ramses Barden and Clint Sintim on the we'll see side).
But Ross isn't the only one who can be lured away from the Giants. Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride is said to be at the top of the list for the Raiders' head coaching job if/when the team decides to cut ways with Tom Cable. He was also mentioned as a candidate for the Bills job when Dick Jauron was first fired this fall, but I haven't heard anything come of that yet this offseason.
Another possibility for the Bills, though, is Leslie Frazier for their head coach. If he gets the job, word is he'd like to tap Giants QB coach Chris Palmer for his offensive coordinator.
It'd be a tough blow for the Giants to lose their top two offensive coaches (well, two of the three if you count Tom Coughlin).
Meanwhile -- and as a way to keep the Giants-Bills web entangled -- Coughlin is interviewing Perry Fewell today for the open defensive coordinator job here. Given the team's stance on giving this decision a thorough thinking through, I'd be surprised if he wound up with the job right away. The Giants will probably want to turn over a few other stones, so to speak. But then again, if Fewell is their guy, they might want to hurry because he's supposed to interview with the Bears for their D.C. gig next week.
Plenty of moving parts here. We'll keep you posted.
