When things aren't going well, people usually go back to the people they are comfortable with. That's what Brian Daboll may be doing in search to fill his defensive coordinator position.
With the Buffalo Bills eliminated from the playoffs, the G-Men are eyeing to interview a coach from their staff. According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, New York has requested to interview Bills linebacker coach Bobby Babich for their vacant defensive coordinator position.

Both Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen have a history with Babich. All three men were in Buffalo together from 2018-2022 before Daboll and Schoen bolted to the Big Apple.
Babich joined Buffalo in 2017 as the team's assistant defensive backs coach before getting promoted to the team's safeties coach in 2018. Before the 2022 season, he was named Buffalo's linebacker coach. Babich helped linebacker Matt Milano secure a First-Team All-Pro appearance in 2022.
The 40-year-old has coaching experience that dates back to 2006. Babich began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Kent State. He then worked at Eastern Illinois as the team's secondary coach from 2007-2010. Babich jumped into the NFL coaching circle in 2011 and had stints with the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, and Buffalo Bills.
The Giants have also interviewed or expressed interest in Chargers defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley, Dolphins linebacker coach Anthony Campanile, and Giants defensive back coach Jerome Henderson.
With the way things went down with Wink Martindale, Daboll and Schoen may be looking to bring in a familiar face to East Rutherford.
