Ever since the departure of Tom Coughlin, the New York Giants have yet to appoint his successor as head coach at the franchise.

Many names have been rumored to replace Coughlin at one of the most lucrative head coaching roles in the NFL available, and the next one to be linked is the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator, Hue Jackson, according to Pro Football Talk.

Jackson's offensive may have lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card round of the playoffs at the weekend, but this hasn't lured any teams away from wanting him part of their franchise. The San Francisco 49ers and the Cleveland Browns interviewed him on Sunday, and now the Giants are joining the party.

The Giants have requested an interview with the 50-year-old but one is yet to be scheduled. The NFC East franchise would provide Jackson with another opportunity to change his head coaching record from the time he was at the Oakland Raiders.

During his time with the AFC West team, he took the team to an 8-8 record in 2011 and third place in the division. At the end of the season, he was fired by the franchise.

Jackson is a more promising head coach this time around as, despite the loss of quarterback Andy Dalton late in the season, his Bengals offense averaged 26.2 points per game. Scoring this amount of points on average per game is a huge appeal to the Giants, as they look to reclaim the NFC East and a place in the playoffs in 2016.

Out of the three jobs he's been interviewed for, this position is probably the most attractive, as it already has a franchise quarterback in Eli Manning and several pieces already in place on offense and defense.

Should the New York Giants offer their head coaching job to Hue Jackson? Have your say and leave a comment below...
