The New York Giants are interviewing Chicago Bears assistant special teams coach Carlos Polk for special teams coordinator, per a report from ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan.

Polk is a former linebacker, who was drafted out of Nebraska by the Los Angeles Chargers (then San Diego) in the fourth round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He spent eight years in the NFL, playing seven for the Chargers and a final year with the Dallas Cowboys. Polk immediately transitioned into coaching after his playing career ended, and was hired as the assistant special teams coach for Grassmont College in 2009.

He’s spent the last 15 years a special teams coach, and has been an assistant for the Chargers (2010-2012), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2014-18), Cowboys (2013, 2019), Jacksonville Jaguars (2021), and Bears (2022-present).

The Giants have also interviewed San Francisco 49ers assistant special teams coach Matt Harper for the position after being denied interviews with special teams coordinators Ryan Ficken (Chargers), Chris Tabor (Panthers), and Marquice Williams (Falcons).
