Steve Tisch hopes Giants hire new coach by the end of this week

Giants co-owner hopes to hire Coughlin's replacement soon.

When Tom Coughlin resigned as coach of the Giants last week, co-owner John Mara insisted that the search for a replacement would begin in earnest. Now the Giants other co-owner is hinting that a hiring decision could come as soon as this weekend. 

"I've been talking to Jerry (Reese) every day," Tisch said per SNY. "John (Mara) and Jerry have been, you know, handling the actual on-site interviews and I've been brought up to date every day. John and I are going to have a long conversation [Wednesday].

Top coaching candidates on the Giants radar include: Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, Former Falcons head coach Mike Smith, Former Bills head coach Doug Marrone as well as Stanford's Brian Shaw, Alabama's Nick Saban, Ohio State's Urban Meyer and Notre Dame's Brian Kelley atop many NFL team's wishlists.

The most likely coach to succeed Coughlin is McAdoo who guided quarterback Eli Manning to the most prolific passing season of his career. The Giants haven't tipped their hand as to which direction they're leaning, but it appears a decision will come sooner, rather than later.

"I have a couple candidates who I think will be potentially really good head coaches but I want to reserve expressing my thoughts to you until John, Jerry and I have a chance to talk later in the week," he said.
