Schwartz emerges as favorite for Giants' coaching job

Schwartz is expected to interview for the position sometime this week, as the Eagles will have a first-round bye in the wild card round of the postseason next weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is expected to be a favorite - if not the favorite - for the New York Giants' head-coaching job, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Earlier this week, Giants co-owner John Mara wanted to make it very clear that the organization wants to hire a head coach with enough experience.

The Cardinals are seeking a new coach for the first time since the conclusion of the 2012 season.

Schwartz, who took over at the helm of the Detroit Lions before the 2009-10 season after the team's infamous 0-16 campaign, got the Lions to the playoffs as soon as the 2011-12 season.

"Expect us on Monday to start sending out the consent forms and start making contact". "You can request permission and the team that they now work for can tell you what day and where, but you can start asking for permission on Monday".

Nick Caserio isn't heading to NY to take over as the Giants general manager, but Patriots assistants Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia remain at the top of the team's list of head coaching candidates.

With potentially as many as 10 jobs open, it appears multiple teams will be focused on the Eagles' coaching staff in their attempt to find their next head coach- including the Giants.
