Commanders request interview with Giants’ Mike Adams for DB coach job

The New York Giants have dealt with a significant coaching staff shuffle this offseason, which shows no signs of slowing down.

Earlier this week, the Washington Commanders requested to interview Giants’ assistant special teams coach Mike Adams for their vacant defensive backs coaching job.

The Giants are not permitted to grant Washington’s request but given that this would technically be a promotion, it’s believed they will.

Adams joined the Giants as a coaching intern in 2022 before taking on the assistant special teams coordinator role in 2023. Before that, he served as the assistant defensive backs coach for the Chicago Bears (2021).

The New Jersey native was signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2004. He spent 16 seasons in the NFL, also making stops with the Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, and Houston Texans.

Adams was a two-time Pro Bowler during his playing career.
