Eric Studesville on Wednesday became the sixth candidate to interview for the New York Giants’ vacant head-coaching position. Studesville could be the candidate with the longest odds of getting the job, since he is the only one without coordinator experience.
Studesville has 17 years of NFL coaching experience, all handling running backs. He spent the last eight seasons with the Denver Broncos, and was recently fired. Studesville was Giants’ running backs coach from 2001-2003, when Jim Fassel was head coach. He was interim head coach in Denver for four games in 2010, compiling a 1-3 record.
Studesville’s interview is the last one the Giants have scheduled. They have also interviewed Steve Spagnuolo, Josh McDaniels, Matt Patricia, Steve Wilks and Pat Shurmur. The latest information is that Patricia, defensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, could be in line to get the job.
Shurmur, Wilks, Patricia and McDaniels have been sought after by multiple teams. The Giants, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts all have head-coaching vacancies.
