Loggains was dismissed this week along with head coach Mike Munchak and others. Munchak was sacked after he refused to fire some assistants, including Loggains, in order to keep his job.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen believes Loggains is one of the top up-and-coming playcallers in the league…

Loggains, 33, has a very small resume for the Giants to peruse. He began his coaching career as the Titans’ offensive quality control coach in 2008 and was promoted to QB coach in 2010. He took over as OC when Chris Palmer, a former Giants’ assistant and NFL head coach, was dismissed in November of 2011.
Loggains was a backup QB at Arkansas, and at 5’5″, 165 lbs, was relegated to holding for FGs and PATs. In 2005, he served as a scouting assistant for the Dallas Cowboys before being hired by Tennessee as a coaching administrative assistant in 2006.
His interview with the Giants is allegedly to occur today as well as Mike Sullivan’s. SNYGiants insider Ralph Vacchiano believes a few others will be brought in to interview as well….
“There will likely be more candidates interviewing, though no candidates have been confirmed yet. John McNulty, the former Rutgers offensive coordinator, would seem to be one possibility given his ties to Tom Coughlin who hired him as his receivers coach in Jacksonville (1998-2002). However, he was the Bucs’ quarterbacks coach under Sullivan last season, so he might make more sense as the new quarterbacks coach if Sullivan gets the job.
One other intriguing possibility is Ben McAdoo, the quarterbacks coach of the Green Bay Packers, who is a free agent, according to an NFL source. He signed only a one-year deal after last season, the source said, because the Packers had denied teams permission to speak with him about offensive coordinator jobs in each of the last three seasons. McAdoo has spent the last two years as the Packers’ quarterbacks coach. Before that, from 2006-2011, he coached the Packers’ tight ends.”
