The New York Giants grabbed headlines around the NFL on Monday when they fired head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese after a disastrous 2-10 start to their 2017 season. 

 

With the season lost, the team is turning to defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo to get New York through the final four games of the season, which will likely be his audition for keeping the role to himself for 2018 and beyond. 

 

But there are already a number of names that could challenge for the Giants job, which will be a huge storyline in the coming months considering this is one of the most high-profile jobs in the NFL.
