New York Giants interview Mike McCarthy for head...


The New York Giants interviewed former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy for their vacant head coach role, the team announced Friday.

McCarthy is the second candidate to interview for the Giants head coaching role—the first was Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Kris Richard on Thursday.

It isn’t clear if the Giants are heavily considering McCarthy as a top candidate to replace Pat Shurmur. But he was one of the first candidates to interview for the job so the Giants wanted to make sure they got him in the building.

McCarthy has a long history as a coach in the NFL. He got his start in 1993 as the offensive quality control coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs for two seasons and then held the role of quarterbacks coach until 1998.

McCarthy then joined the Packers coaching staff in 1999 as the quarterbacks coach before becoming the offensive coordiantor for the New Orleans Saints from 2000–2004. He also spent one season as the offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers in 2005.

McCarthy would rise to prominence though as the head coach of the Packers beginning in 2006. He held the role until he was fired in 2018 and accumulated a record of 125–77–2 (.618) in the regular season and 10-8 in the playoffs.

There are still a handful of candidates the Giants are slated to interview. The best case scenario is that the Giants get their head coach soon so they have enough time to get their staff together and begin preparing for the draft and free agency, but some of the candidates are with playoff teams so the deadline gets pushed back a bit.

Even so, the Giants continued their search for a new head coach by bringing in McCarthy on Friday.
