With a disappointing 6-9 record and Tom Coughlin on the hot seat, the New York Giants could likely be seeking a new head coach after this season and the search will be conducted with a short list of candidates in mind. The favorites are their two coordinators, Ben McAdoo and Steve Spagnuolo, and current New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton.
Payton is still under contract for another season, but may not be extended after this year and released. The Giants would certainly be interested should that happen. McAdoo was brought in last season, according to some, to be Coughlin's heir apparent. But after two seasons, many have begin to think that may not have the leadership and mettle to be a head coach.
CBSSports.com's Jason LaCanfora writes that the Saints will be reshuffling their front office this offseason and may let Payton walk. LaCanfora points out the Giants, San Diego Chargers and Indianapolis Colts as possible landing spots for Payton.
