Glazer: Here Is the Leading Candidate to Replace Tom Coughlin in 2016

By JOHN DORN

The New York Giants have not made the playoffs since beating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, and have posted a 28-35 record since that season entering Sunday. At just 6-9 this season, and eliminated from postseason contention, rumors have swirled regarding Tom Coughlin's job security. But we now seem to have some concrete information.

According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, Coughlin -- who turns 70 in August -- and the Giants will mutually agree to part ways some time this week. The lead candidate to replace him is offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who the franchise brought in from Green Bay prior to the 2014 season.

McAdoo was the Packers' quarterbacks coach in 2012 and 2013 -- he'd coached tight ends on Mike McCarthy's staff from 2006-2011.

"That's a long way away. This year, again, we're focused on Philadelphia," McAdoo said earlier in the week. "I'm not thinking about my future. That would be selfish. ""There are a lot of people in the building that are all working together and trying to get a win this week and for me to think about myself and the future, as far as that goes, I think would be selfish and short-sighed."

CBS Sports' Jason La Confora reported last week that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton would be interested in the Giants' job opening. Payton served as offensive coordinator in New York from 2000-2002.
