The rumor mill will continue to heat up surrounding the New York Giants’ vacant head coaching job, especially now that Dave Gettleman has been hired as the team’s general manager.

Reports earlier on Sunday indicated that Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is favored to land the job. In fact, an interview could be on the horizon here soon.

Though, according to the venerable Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, said reports seem to be premature. Myers also notes that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia are favorites along with Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien (should he be fired) to land the Giants’ job.
