The target, in specifically, zeroes in on Reese who will be selecting his first head coach since he was named general manager in 2007.
Whomever gets named coach of the Giants will have his work cut out for him. Aside from filling the shoes of a two-time Super Bowl winning head coach in Tom Coughlin, the new coach will look to keep Eli Manning in an offense that has him playing the best football of his career. In addition, he has a young, tremendously talented, but also very emotional Odell Beckham Jr. to work with. Leadership and a physicality that has always been the backbone of the Giants has been missing in the last few years. The new coach must establish it again to rebuild the pride of the Giants.
