What's going to end up happening with NY Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka this offseason? No one knows the answer to that question, as the Big Blue OC has been interviewing for head coach openings, while reports keep coming in that he's not happy in East Rutherford too.
The Giants offense was quite inconsistent this past campaign, playing a big role in the Giants finishing 6-11. However, Brian Daboll said that he anticipates Kafka returning next season. Again, though, that's up in the air and a recent report from Jordan Raanan saying that Kafka probably won't be back has a lot of people confused.
With all of that said, it looks like the Seattle Seahawks could be ready to lure the second-year OC out of New Jersey soon. According to insider Albert Breer, Kafka had his second interview with the Hawks on Wednesday. They'll bring in other candidates this week, including Dallas DC Dan Quinn, but Kafka is a name to watch to potentially replace Pete Carroll:
Will Mike Kafka land a job offer from the Seattle Seahawks?
Per Breer, Kafka went first, while Quinn will meet with the front office on Thursday, followed by Raheem Morris and Ejiro Evero over the weekend. It's been a bit of a surprise that Kafka is getting HC looks after the rough year the Giants had, but it's clear Kafka is quite respected across the league.
The door certainly feels open for Kafka to make a lateral move and accept a new OC job as well, as things don't appear to be going too well for him with Daboll. This includes Coach Dabes taking away play-calling duties away from him multiple times this season. Kafka very well could return to the NFC East side in 2024, but Giants Nation should also get mentally ready for him to join a new team.
