Giants coach Tom Coughlin isn’t planning to make any changes to his coaching staff, but he might not have a choice.

Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell could be headed elsewhere.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Cleveland and Carolina have both submitted interview requests to the Giants, saying they’d like to interview Fewell for their head-coaching vacancies.

Fewell just finished his first year as the Giants’ defensive coordinator. He was with the Bills from 2006 until the end of the 2009 season, first as defensive coordinator and then, at the end of his tenure in Buffalo, as interim head coach.

By interviewing Fewell, the Browns and Panthers will have satisfied the requirements of the Rooney Rule.
