Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is getting a second interview for the vacant New York Giants head coaching job before some candidates have gotten a chance for a first meeting.

The Giants confirmed on Monday that Daboll will meet with co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch and new general manager Joe Schoen on Tuesday at the team’s headquarters in the Meadowlands sports complex.

Daboll was first interviewed on a video call on Friday, hours after Schoen, the former Bills assistant general manager, was hired to replace the retired Dave Gettleman.

The Bills have won the past two AFC East titles behind the play of quarterback Josh Allen and Daboll’s high-powered offense. They have had the misfortunate to run into Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs the past two postseasons, dropping a 42-36 overtime decision Sunday in the divisional round. They lost the AFC title game 38-24 last season.

Schoen and ownership also interviewed Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo over the weekend. Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was scheduled to be interviewed Monday for the job that opened when Joe Judge was fired on Jan. 11 after a 4-13 season, and a 10-23 overall record.

New York also has indicated it will speak with current Giants defensive coordinator Pat Graham and recently fired Miami coach Brian Flores about the job.

The Giants have not made the playoffs since 2016, their only appearance since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012. The have posted five straight double-digit losing seasons. After firing Tom Coughlin at the end of the 2015 season, they have hired and fired three coaches — Ben McAdoo, Pat Shurmur and Judge. Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo ran the team on an interim basis after McAdoo and then-general manager Jerry Reese were fired in December 2017.
