Report: Giants to interview Don Martindale, Sean Desai for DC job

The New York Giants are interviewing longtime NFL assistants Don “Wink” Martindale and Sean Desai among “four or so others” for their defensive coordinator opening on Saturday, the NFL Network reported.

The Giants are seeking to replace defensive coordinator Patrick Graham, who reportedly has accepted the same role with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Martindale, 58, had been the defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens for the last four seasons. Starting in 2004, he spent five seasons as the Raiders’ linebackers coach before serving as the Denver Broncos’ linebackers coach in 2009 and their defensive coordinator the following year.

Martindale also was the Ravens’ linebackers coach from 2012-17. The Ravens fired Martindale on Jan. 21.

Desai, 38, has spent the last nine seasons with the Chicago Bears, including 2021 as their defensive coordinator. He was Chicago’s defensive quality control coach from 2013-18 before serving as the Bears safeties coach the next two seasons.

The Bears confirmed Desai’s departure from the team on Tuesday. He was not retained by new head coach Matt Eberflus.
