If the Giants win the SB, does Tom Coughlin call it a career? It's definately a nice way to end a great run.</P>


If so, who steps in?</P>

I don't see it, why would he retire when Eli is in his prime and the team is pretty much intact as well? I'm sure he'll think there's another run in them, and I think so too.

I think he does. If you remember weeks back Tom and Tuck had a private discussion. Out of it the "All In" campaign was born. I believe Tom expressed to Tuck that this would be his last year and would love to go out on top. Hence the team being "All In" for Tom and his legacy.

I know this is beating a dead horse but I really believe Cowher is waiting for the HC position to open up here and will be next in line. He was expressed his interest in coaching for us and he is also close with the Mara's.

But who really knows. Everything at this point is speculation on who retires and who is hired. This is just one option I am throwing out there.

</P>Its the only scenario I would want for TC but I don't prefer he leave either...I'd hate to see either of our coordinators get the HC job

I doubt he leaves...he's finally got a young team where everyone from top to bottom buys into his philosophy and probably sees an opportunity to reach even greater heights.

wouldn't he want to try for a repeat and 3peat ?

i got to admit, its an interesting theory.

remember after the win vs atlanta or dallas, rolle was quoted as saying that this team loves coughlin and wants him to be able to call it a career on his terms? i have a feeling some of the players realize that tom may be weighing his options and know that a SB win allows him to walk off into the sunset on his terms.

Not a bad theory. It would be one heck of a way for T.C. to go out. Not to mention a wonderfully executed P.R./Motivation campaign.

I believe all the vacancies are full so they may give it one more run.

Coughlin made it clear that if he wins, he's not retiring.

"If his New York Giants (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants) happened to walk away from Super Bowl XLVI with a win over the New England Patriots (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-england-patriots)
and a second championship ring under his watch, it's unlikely anyone
would begrudge him retiring a winner. The grandfatherly, occasionally
curmudgeonly Coughlin apparently has no such plans (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/1/23/2727954/prisco-tom-coughlin-giants-super-bowl-2012-coach), however.Coughlin reportedly told Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com (http://peteprisco.blogs.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/6315047/34537754) that he isn't even entertaining the idea of hanging up his cleats just yet.
<blockquote>


"I feel good," Coughlin said "Retire to do what?"</p>
</blockquote>


He reiterated that he still loves the job that he does, and that his
family, including his 10 grandchildren, offer much-needed reprieve when
he needs it. Coughlin currently has one more year on his contract, and
is all but assured a healthy extension for the Giants run to the Super
Bowl after going 9-7 during the regular season. </p>

I doubt he would come out a week before the Superbowl and admit publicly he was retiring.

I think it's possible that he does, but not likely. And I agree -- why leave now when everyone FINALLY byes into your philosophy. This is finally HIS team, unquestionably.</P>

TC has an elite QB in Eli who is now coming in to the prime of his career and thats something most coaches would love to have so why would TC walk away from a situation like that. Yeah he is 65 years old but so what he's doing something he loves and as long as his health is good why should he give it up..

I think Coughlin will be coaching the Giants until after his 70th birthday. And he'll still have more energy than half the team.

I agree with NYBlue10 - for at least one more year. I don't think he'd give up the chance for the rare back-to-back. A little O-Line and Linebacker help in the off-season would make this group pretty menacing - on paper and on the field. If we were to fall short in the 2012 season, maybe he'd go then. All that is based on the OP about winning this year.

I think he comes back next year no matter what. And we'll be lucky to have him back. </P>


One thing though. Wouldn't it be poetic that TC FINALLY gets off the NYC hot seat, and FINALLY doesn't have to worry every season about getting fired.....And he just walks away? </P>


It would be ironic that once he's finally accepted as a great coach that he'd opt to leave. </P>
