TOM COUGHLIN FINALLY MAY GET LONG-TERM CONTRACT WITH NEW YORK GIANTS
Fri, 30 Mar 2012 01:36 PM EDT

N.Y Giants coach Tom Coughlin, entering the last year of his deal, voiced certainty that a new, multiyear extension will be hammered out in the approaching weeks.

Two months removed from his 2nd Super Bowl championship in 4 years, an optimistic Coughlin didn’t appeared concerned about anything — not even the massive quantity of hoopla generated by the New York Jets. Basketball odds.

The Jets’ acquisition of Tim Tebow has dwarfed the Giants in the New York area, but Coughlin insisted he doesn’t mind one bit. Perhaps modifying his local rival, Coughlin announced admirers remember championships more than anything.

“You know who won the Super Bowl, you know who the world champions are,” he claimed. “Whether we are on the front page every day or not, it is not that crucial. New Yorkers know.”

Life is great for the New York Giants and Coughlin, who is looking at the likelihood of a significant raise. He agreed a 4-year agreement for approximately $21 million after the prior Super Bowl win, getting a one year extension before the 2011 season. This time, he expects more than a year and there’s speculation he could jump into the $7 million-a-year category.

“It’s just whenever John and our folk get together, get a sit-down and give themselves a little time,” he said. “I’m sure it’ll get done.”

On Tuesday, part owner John Mara expounded he expects to wrap up a deal in 4 to 6 weeks.

“We’ve had a lot of good discussions since the Super Bowl, and I don’t have any doubt it’s going to get done extraordinarily soon,” Mara said. “As I’ve claimed, Tom is our man, and we think we have the best coach in the league.”

Coughlin, 65-year-old, the oldest coach in the league, related he doesn’t have any timetable in terms of how long he would like to coach.

“No matter how many years you sign a deal, it’s a 1 year contract,” he announced. “I’m going to go forth with the concept of enjoying each season as it comes and rallying the troops, if you will.”

Addressing a couple of lingering personnel issues, Coughlin asserted the Giants had an interest in re-signing running back Brandon Jacobs, who was cut recently in a salary-cap move.

But Jacobs won’t be returning to the Giants as he concluded to a deal with the SF 49ers, a league resource said.

Defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who requested a trade before last season, will be back on the team, according to Coughlin.

Coughlin did maybe his best coaching job last season, beating wounds and a 4-game losing streak to win the NFC East at 9-7. The Giants stunned the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers in road playoff victories before defeating the New England Patriots in a dramatic Super Bowl XLVI. Basketball spreads.

“The things of legends,” Coughlin asserted, throughout a relaxing session with reporters.

A few weeks before the championship, Coughlin was thought to be on the hot seat, with critics asking for him to be fired. Casting backwards on the affliction, he giggled.

“I’ll take the mounds to reach the end of the rainbow anytime,” he announced.
