Former Buffalo interim head coach Perry Fewell completed his interview for the Giants' vacant defensive coordinator's job this afternoon, according to a report by Vinny DiTrani of the Bergen Record.
Fewell is scheduled to interview for the Chicago Bears' DC job next week, and there's a good chance he'll land there because of his connections with Lovie Smith. He's a Cover-2 coach, anyway, and I don't think he'd fit into a team that needs a shot of aggressiveness in the coming season.
The Giants have apparently reached out to former assistant and former Browns head coach Romeo Crennel as another candidate. Crennel, the report said, is on vacation in Aruba, but is due back Monday. He'll no doubt be interviewed next week. The interesting thing about Crennel is he's a 3-4 coach, having been imbued with the Bill Parcells/Bill Belichick philosophy of defense that worked so well in New York and New England. He and Coughlin worked together on the 1990 Super Bowl squad, so it's not outlandish to think Coughlin would have him in for a sit-down.
