The Giants agreed to hire former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher late Tuesday night, a source told ESPN. Bettcher met with the Giants in Mobile, Alabama, on Tuesday afternoon, while he was in town for the Senior Bowl.
Bettcher also interviewed with and received an offer from the Tennessee Titans to be their defensive coordinator, the source said.
The 39-year-old Bettcher wasn't retained by new Cardinals coach Steve Wilks, who was hired Monday.
Bettcher was the DC for the Cardinals for the last three seasons and his defenses finished 5th, 2nd and 6th in yards allowed in that span. This looks like a good hire for the G-Men.
