Marrone joins a growing list of candidates being looked at by owner John Mara and general manager Jerry Reese. Current Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin have all already gone through a first round of interviews.
He previously served two seasons as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills, compiling a 15–17 record. He decided to opt of his contract after the 2014, but failed to land another head coaching job.
Longtime Giants head coach Tom Coughlin resigned from the position Jan. 5 after a third straight losing season. Over his 12 seasons in New York, Coughlin compiled 102 wins and led the team to two Super Bowl victories.
