    RETIREMENT NOT ON THE MIND OF GIANTS' HEAD COACH TOM COUGHLIN

    "New York
    Giants head coach Tom
    Coughlin
    is three months shy of his 66th birthday. He's been a coach in the
    NFL since 1984
    (save for a three year gap from 1991-1993) and is currently the oldest head
    coach in the league. He's won two Lombardi Trophy's over the last five seasons
    and no one would question him if he decided it was time to walk away from the
    game. But that's not going to happen. Not only will Coughlin return for the
    2012-2013 season, but he'll likely remain with the team for quite some time.

    Speaking at the 17th annual Jay
    Fund Foundation
    golf tournament on Monday to benefit those battling cancer,
    Coughlin reiterated his desire to continue coaching in the NFL.



    "I'm not mentally, not physically, ready [to retire]," said Coughlin. "I feel
    I have good energy. I'm excited every day. The competitiveness, the nature of
    the business, is something that I'm still excited about. I don't wander down
    that path. I don't think about retirement. I enjoy the situation I'm in. I
    appreciate the backing I've received from [Giants] ownership and the way the
    players have responded to our program."




    As recently as last week, Giants co-owner John Mara said the team was working diligently on a contract extension for Coughlin, which
    is poised to be significantly longer than the one-year extension he received a
    year ago … which is somewhat ironic given Coughlin's thoughts on all contracts
    in the NFL.





    "I really don't feel any pull or tug in another direction. I look at it on a
    yearly basis. In our business, no matter how many years they give you on the
    contract, it's a one-year deal anyway," Coughlin added.




    Since Coughlin's transformation following the 2006 season, the mood amongst
    his players has changed substantially. Still an old-school disciplinarian, Coach
    Coughlin has managed to earn a tremendous amount of respect by allowing a
    two-way street of communication to open between he and his players. And the man
    who was once accused of driving running back Tiki Barber to retirement is now
    the same man who was visibly beloved by his players in 2011.




    Coughlin has gone from the hot seat to immortality, and some even believe he
    deserves an open-ended contract with Big Blue.




    In eight years with Big Blue, Coughlin has experienced only one losing season
    – his first (6-10 in 2004). Since then, he has compiled a 68-44 regular season
    record, a 8-3 playoff record and, of course, has brought the Lombardi Trophy
    home twice."

        Why even bother talking about retiring? If the giants ever even have a sub 500 season the "fans" will start calling for his head.
        Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

          It won't even take that much for some.

            That comes with the territory of being a championship team. Fan expectations are higher than ever. The media loves to have fun with it too because negative stories get more page views.

              Weve said it before, even if we win but its ugly they come out of the wood work.

              To think how the tc opinion changed so dramatically so quickly. Not only do the players need to buy into the system, so do the fans...tc model is proven, the program he runs will always field a competitive team, and thats something only a few teams have

                I thought after the superbowl win TC would retire just because of age but I am glad he chose not to. TC has definitely earned a free pass for awhile after his second title and numerous playoff appearances throughout his tenure here. Glad to see him get an extension, he deserves it.

                    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-
