Lions Receive Permission to Interview Steve Spagnuolo

Adam Schefter has another report on the Lions' coaching search, and this one is much better news.

The Lions requested and received permission Monday to interview New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who is regarded as one of the pre-eminent coaching candidates this offseason. Spagnuolo must interview with the Lions this week, during the Giants’ bye, before New York ramps up its preparations for a divisional playoff game next Sunday.

Plus, the Lions are not the only interested team. The Browns also plan to ask for permission to interview Spagnuolo, if they haven’t done so already. St. Louis is also thought to be in the mix.

There's not much else to add other than that Spagnuolo is at the top of my wishlist of candidates.  The Giants' defense has been very good the last two seasons, and Spagnuolo won a Super Bowl with New York last season.  It'll be tough to land him with other teams interested, but the Lions should definitely go after him.
