GIANTS EXTEND TOM COUGHLIN’S CONTRACT THROUGH 2014
Mon, 11 Jun 2012 10:04 PM EDT

Tom Coughlin has signed an extension that may take him thru the 2014 season, the Giants expounded. The new contract adds 2 seasons to his previous contract, which was scheduled to finish after the approaching season. Football spreads

The New York Giants had said all offseason that they were working on an extension with Coughlin. Now, after they have pretty much finished their roster heading into training camp with the signing of all of their draft picks, a restructured deal for Osi Umenyiora, an extension for Mathias Kiwanuka and other personnel moves, they have finished their to-do list with the Coughlin agreement.

“It has traditionally been my faith that it is an honor and a privilege to be the chief coach of the N.Y Giants,” expounded Coughlin who, at 65-year-old, is the oldest head coach in the NFL and will definitely be 68-year-old at the end of his new agreement. “I’m thankful to John Mara and Steve Tisch and their families for their support and the recognition of what our players and coaches have achieved. And I am thankful for the working relationship [GM] Jerry Reese and I have. We have got plenty of work left to do.”

Coughlin is coming off his 2nd Super Bowl with the Giants. He is entering his 9th year as head coach, the 2nd-longest reign in franchise history behind Hall of Famer Steve Owen. He will almost surely move past Bill Parcells into 2nd place all time in regular season head training wins with the Giants in the upcoming season. Coughlin has 74, Parcells has 77, and Owen, who coached for 24 years, has 153.

“I wanted Tom as our chief coach going all of the way back to the early ’90s,” team president and CEO John Mara said. “So it was with great confidence that Ernie Accorsi and I recommended to my father [Wellington Mara] and Bob Tisch in 2004 that we hire Tom. Obviously, my father did not need to be convinced. He saw what we’ve all seen, a person who has a singular focus and incredible perseverance when it comes down to his work. In so many different ways, Tom represents to me who and what the head coach of our franchise should be.”

“Tom is the ideal person in the right job at the right time,” added team chairman Steve Tisch. “I just really realize how our players respond to his leadership, and glaringly our organization has benefitted fantastically thanks to the relationship Tom has with his players.”

It was only 7 months ago that Coughlin’s future with the team was much more tenuous. With the team 7-7 heading into the last 2 games of the regular season and at risk of missing the playoffs for the 2nd straight season, there were many who believed a loss to the Jets on Christmas Eve might have been too much of an indignity for the organization to suffer. The New York Giants won that game and the following 5 as well, including Super Bowl XLVI over the New England Patriots. That run of 6 straight wins shoved Coughlin from the proverbial hot seat to instant consideration as a Hall of Famer.
