    NEW YORK GIANTS REPORTEDLY LOOKING TOWARD CONTRACT EXTENSION FOR TOM COUGHLIN

    "While the offseason is typically focused on signing or releasing free agents,
    there is also the issue of doing the same for the coaching staff. The New York
    Giants
    are looking to do just that in the near future with head coach,
    Tom
    Coughlin
    .


    Bart Hubbuch
    reported via Twitter
    (of the New York Post) that Giants owner, John
    Mara
    , is looking to establish a contract extension with Coughlin in
    the coming weeks.




    "John Mara
    just told me the Giants expect to complete Tom
    Coughlin
    's contract extension in the next month to 6
    weeks."




    At the present time, Coughlin is only good through the 2012 season, but that
    is likely to change soon. Coughlin's legacy with the New York
    Giants
    was ultimately solidified with last season's Super Bowl Championship;
    his second with the Giants. As such, it is likely that the Giants organization
    will allow Coughlin to call his own shots as far as contract extension goes.




    In all likelihood, the Giants will give Coughlin a one-year extension and
    allow him to do that for as long as he wants to, moving forward. Coughlin is in
    his early 60's, so he could theoretically continue for several more years.
    Frankly, most Giants fans around the globe would be happy to him running the
    ship until he decides it's time for him to hang it up.




    Stay tuned to Giants 101 for updates on Coughlin's contract and other free
    agency information.

          As far as I'm concerned TC should have carte blanche.

                      When TC started his tenure at the GIANTS, I was happy to have a regimented coach after the Fassel Country Club. In the following years, after hearing the scuttlebutt from the locker room, and the public lambasting he received from veteran players including Mike Strahan and Tiki Barber, combined with his poor performance, I was anti-Coughlin. Then came 07- I watched the players rally around him, saw a 180 from Strahan, and watched Tiki get rebuffed by several players. I started to doubt my dislike of TC. As the season wore on, and I saw the team come close to beating the "UNDEFEATED", I began wondering if I was wrong. I took Dallas in stride, but after seeing him, red faced and stoic as ever as his team fought the elements and a veteran QB, survived missed FG's and marched into OT with no signs of "quit", going on to win the game that put us in Tempe, I began to like the crotchety old *******. Then came SB 42. He provided the leadership, as Spags and the defense showed NE that they were mortal.
                      He officially got a pass for the 08 season.
                      Then Burress .... well, we all know what Burress did. So, I extended that pass. The last couple of years, aside from some times where I questioned his clock management, I though he did well. In the past year, though, after a second SB, and the videos of him being hoisted by the players above the locker room after the first NE game, I have no doubts. He is universally respected, maybe not loved, but respected by the players. You can't buy that. In my opinion, TC has earned the right to stay until he decides to leave. Hopefully with another 2 Lombardi's under his tenure. Eli has 2 more in him. This year could be his third. TC has the opportunity to make Bill Parcels look like the second best coach in GIANTS history. Let the man show us why he should be considered the best coach in GIANTS history.

                        Hopefully he sticks around for as long as Eli does.

                            TC certainly deserves it.

                              I think he stays until 2014 to give himself the opportunity to coach in the SB in his own house. After that he hangs it up either way. Just a gut feeling.
