Redskins hired ex-Giants DC Perry Fewell as DBs coach.
Fewell was also a candidate for the 49ers' defensive-backs job. Fewell has been coordinating defenses or coaching defensive backs in the NFL since 1998. He's a nice addition to DC Joe Barry's staff, especially since Barry himself was such an underwhelming hire. Jan 27 - 2:39 PM

Ex-Giants DC Perry Fewell is interviewing for the Redskins' DBs coach opening on Monday.

Fewell is a candidate for the same job in San Francisco. Fewell has been coordinating NFL defenses since 2006, and served as at least a DBs coach since 1998. His experience would make him a nice addition for any staff.

Ex-Giants DC Perry Fewell will interview for the 49ers DBs coach job on Friday.

Fewell spent the past five seasons as the Giants' DC, succeeding Steve Spagnuolo only to be replaced by Spagnuolo again after coach Tom Coughlin fired Fewell earlier this month. New 49ers coach Jim Tomsula has been constructing a coaching staff with plenty of experience. Fewell has a DBs background.

Giants fired DC Perry Fewell.

Fewell, 52, worked under coach Tom Coughlin for 10 seasons, spending five in Jacksonville from 1998-2002 and the last five as the Giants' defensive boss. Fewell's Giants units were top-10 in yards allowed in 2010 and 2013, but were bottom-five the other three seasons. The G-Men were particularly bad against the run this past season, finishing 30th and surrendering a league-worst 4.9 YPC.

A source tells Newsday that Giants DC Perry Fewell appears to be safe.

Fewell's defense ranked 29th in 2014 and the Giants missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Yet Tom Coughlin will return and it appears Fewell will as well. Injuries to MLB Jon Beason and CB Prince Amukamara were bigger problems than the scheme.

The New York Daily News believes Giants DC Perry Fewell's job is "certainly in danger."

The 2014 Giants ranked in the bottom five of the NFL's defensive rankings for the third time in Fewell's three seasons as coordinator. Fewell has generated head-coaching interest in recent seasons, but his performance as the Giants' DC never matched up with those inquiries. The Giants' coaching staff is otherwise expected to return intact, with Tom Coughlin at HC and Ben McAdoo at OC.

The Redskins will interview Giants DC Perry Fewell for their head-coaching vacancy on Monday.

At very least, interviewing Fewell would satisfy the Rooney Rule in the Redskins' coaching search. The Giants already lost OC Kevin Gilbride to retirement, and could lose another coordinator on the off chance Fewell knocks owner Dan Snyder's socks off during his interview. The Redskins' latest interview was with Panthers DC Sean McDermott, who met with Snyder on Saturday.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Redskins will interview Giants DC Perry Fewell for their head-coaching vacancy.

Fewell, 51, has been the Giants' defensive boss the past four seasons. Previously, he was with the Bills for four years. In 2009, Fewell was the interim head coach in Buffalo for the final seven games. He led the Bills to a 3-4 finish after Dick Jauron was fired. The Giants fielded the league's No. 8 defense in 2013, finishing tenth against the pass and 14th against the run.

Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell is confident that NFL defenses will stop the read-option offense in 2013.

"I look at that offense kind of like the wildcat," Fewell said. "The wildcat took us by storm and then until you can see it, understand it; then you can defend it." Stopping the read option is especially pertinent in the NFC East, where Robert Griffin III's Redskins dominated with it in 2012 and new Eagles coach Chip Kelly dominated with it as head coach of the Oregon Ducks.
