The Buffalo Bills have already lost assistant general manager Joe Schoen to the New York Giants, and they could also lose a coordinator in the process.
After the Giants officially announced Schoen as their new general manager on Friday, the team has also conducted interviews with both Bills coordinators. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll was interviewed by the Giants on Friday night, while defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was interviewed Saturday morning.
Daboll and Frazier are not the only coaches the Giants are targeting. Team owner John Mara reportedly has reached out directly to former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores.
Flores, Daboll, and Frazier are also getting interest from multiple teams around the NFL. Daboll, specifically, is considered the betting favorite for the Chicago Bears' head coaching job, and is considered one of the favorites in Miami.
If he has interest from multiple teams, which it sounds like he does, Daboll will likely have to decipher which job is the most appealing.
This could be Daboll's only opportunity at a head coaching job, so tying himself to a quarterback that can prevent him from being a flash in the pan will be important.
The Bears' head coaching vacancy, arguably, outranks the Giants', due to an athletic quarterback with a higher ceiling in Justin Fields.
Daniel Jones has already started more games than many get to prove they are a franchise quarterback in the NFL, and he hasn't proven anything. The one benefit of the Giants' job is the flexibility to move on from Jones for your own guy.
Daboll already has past experience with the Dolphins, serving as the team's offensive coordinator back in 2011. He also has experience with Tua Tagovailoa when both were at the University of Alabama, so maybe he ends up in Miami.
However, Fields already looks to be outranking Tagovalioa, in terms of their future outlook.
Wherever Daboll and Frazier end up in 2022, both men have earned enough clout to be hot coaching candidates in this never-ending head coaching cycle.
