I think pretty much everyone who follows the NFL has the same assumption right about now.
When the Giants' season ends, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is as good as gone. There are too many teams searching for head coaches right now for him not to be.
Spagnuolo has already had the chance to interview for openings with the Jets, Broncos, and Browns, but could he spurn all potential suitors?
I've heard nothing about Tom Coughlin retiring, though he is 62 years old. One has to assume he won't coach forever, but is Spagnuolo willing to wait?
Surely, the Giants would offer him a healthy raise to go along with a title too long to fit on a business card (Defensive Coordinator/Head Coach in Waiting?). Would it be enough to fend off the teams looking to hire him to be a head coach in 2009?
