Which jobs are most enticing?

Just a few weeks ago, it seemed nearly certain that Joe Judge would return, even with general manager Dave Gettleman's impending retirement, which became official on Monday. The Giants did not want to dismiss a third coach in a row after just two years, but they did, firing Judge on Tuesday.

The G-Men were embarrassed in the last six games of the season, losing all six by a combined tally of 163-56, scoring an average of 9.3 points per game, and Judge had to address his own status in recent weeks. 

The next coach has a lot to sort through. Does he believe in Daniel Jones? Saquon Barkley? Got any ideas about the offensive line? All of that with a new general manager, who will have two top-10 draft picks but a less-than-ideal cap situation to work with. The Giants have long been viewed as one of the gold-standard franchises in the NFL, but they are at their lowest point since the pre-Parcells days of the 1970s. What kind of coach do they need? A home run hire.
