Report: Giants’ Mike Kafka ‘still in play’ for Seahawks coaching job

New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka currently has his hands full down in Texas where he’s serving as head coach of the West Team in the 2024 Shrine Bowl.

But behind the scenes, following two interviews with the Seattle Seahawks for their vacant head coaching job, things are still churning.

With Ben Johnson opting to remain in Detroit, Kafka remains very much alive in the hunt for the Seattle job.

In addition to Kafka, Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike McDonald, Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, Las Vegas Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham and Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn are also being considered for the job.

Both Quinn and McDonald have drawn interest from the Washington Commanders for their vacant head coaching position.

Also of note, the Giants requested an interview with Evero for their open defensive coordinator position but it was blocked by the Panthers.

There has been significant speculation this offseason that Kafka desires a departure from East Rutherford due to a deteriorating relationship with head coach Brian Daboll. Despite that, the Giants are intent on keeping Kafka around if he doesn’t land a head coaching job.
