FOXBORO -- Some thought with the Giants hiring general manager Dave Gettleman on Friday, the Patriots' coordinators would not be candidates for their head coaching vacancy, but apparently that is not the case.

According to the New York Daily News' Gary Myers, Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia are "1 and 1A" in the eyes of Gettleman. Myers also notes if Bill O'Brien departs Houston he would be 1C. Other names mentioned are Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.

The report also states the Giants brass plans to travel to Foxboro next weekend to interview both Patriots coordinators.

McDaniels and Patricia will likely receive multiple interview requests this coming week.
