With Patrick Graham leaving the New York Giants, new head coach Brian Daboll is looking for his next defensive coordinator.

The Giants are seeking permission to interview Pittsburgh Steelers secondary coach and senior defensive assistant Teryl Austin for the defensive coordinator vacancy, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Austin was the Detroit Lions defensive coordinator in 2016 when he interviewed for the Giants head coaching job in 2016.

Along with being the Lions defensive coordinator from 2014-2017, Austin was the Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator in 2018 before joining the Steelers in 2019.

Austin is one of three known names in line for the Giants defensive coordinator job, as former Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Don Martindale and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Sean Desai are expected to interview this weekend.
