  • Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia

The Daily News has learned that all signs are pointing to Matt Patricia, the New England Patriots defensive coordinator with a degree in aeronautical engineering, as the man the Giants will hire to point Big Blue back in the right direction.

Patricia, who's served as New England's defensive coordinator since 2012, has been a candidate for other head coaching vacancies in recent years and is reportedly the top candidate for the Lions' gig as well, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King in his latest MMQB blog.

"Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Patriots are bracing for defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to leave, most likely to become the next coach of the Detroit Lions", Florio wrote. National Football League rules state Patricia can not execute a contract until the Patriots' season ends.

According to reports, the impact of the hit was so high that the auto rolled over several times before crashing into the pole. A Delhi Police official had identified the rest of the dead as Tikamchand, 27, Yogesh, 24, Harish Roy, 20, and Saurabh, 18.

Pro Football Talk says Patricia has a great relationship with Lions GM Bob Quinn, who worked for the Patriots before coming to the Lions.

Patricia reportedly had interviews with the Giants, Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals last week, but seems to favor NY, according to multiple sources. Patricia boasts a strong pedigree as the architect of a defense that's helped New England win two of the last three Super Bowls, though, and there's plenty of buzz surrounding him in the Tri-State area. Leonard said Patricia is expected to be named as the next coach of the Giants, replacing the fired Ben McAdoo.

King adds that Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur also remain very much in play. "I was not reporting then, and am not reporting now, that the Lions will hire or are likely to hire Patricia".
