New York Giants: Tom Coughlin Wants to Coach for the Foreseeable Future
One thing’s for sure, Tom Coughlin will be the head coach of the New York Giants in 2014. That’s pretty much written in stone. Beyond 2014, well, we’ll just have to wait and find out. If Coughlin has any say in the matter, he’ll be around for a little while longer.
Coughlin, who’s 67 years old, has reiterated the fact that he hopes to be around to coach the Giants beyond the 2014 season. He’s already the oldest coach in the NFL but still has the drive to keep him going. Of course, owner John Mara and the rest of the Giants’ front office will have the final say, which will be based on New York’s success in the immediate future.
The Giants are coming off one of their more disappointing seasons in recent memory. They finished with a record of 7-9 and every game was a constant struggle to compete. New York will have to address a myriad of problems this offseason, as they try to build themselves back into the mix in the NFC East. The team has already started to shake things up by replacing long-time offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride with former Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo.
Coughlin has been New York’s head coach since 2004. He’s had tremendous success in the past with Super Bowl victories in 2007 and 2011. However, inconsistencies have halted the Giants in recent years. This offseason will be critical in resurrecting this Giants team and possibly securing Coughlin’s job in the coming years.
