    GIANTS EXTEND COUGHLIN'S CONTRACT THROUGH 2014

    GIANTS EXTEND COUGHLIN'S CONTRACT THROUGH 2014

    "It was only a matter of when, not if, Tom Coughlin's contract extension would
    be announced.


    The answer: today.




    The Giants have extended their head coach of eight seasons through the 2014
    season. Financial terms of the new contract for the two-time Super Bowl winner
    are not yet available.




    “It has always been my belief that it is an honor and a privilege to be the
    head coach of the New York Giants,” Coughlin said in a
    press release announcing the new deal
    . “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 accomplished. And I’m grateful for the working
    relationship Jerry Reese and I have. We’ve got a lot of work left to do.”




    Coughlin, who turns 66 on Aug. 31 and hasn't publicly entertained thoughts of
    retirement, was signed for this upcoming season, but the second Super Bowl
    victory over the New England Patriots in four years ensured he'd receive an
    extended deal. In 2008, the Giants gave him a four-year, $21-million deal.




    It's believed Bill Belichick is now the highest-paid coach in the NFL at $7.5
    million per season. Coughlin, once on the verge of being fired back in 2006, is
    now being lauded as one of the best coaches in the league, so it's possible his
    deal will be worth as much, if not more.




    “I wanted Tom as our head coach going all the way back to the early ‘90s,”
    Mara said, “so it was with great confidence that Ernie Accorsi and I recommended
    to my father and Bob Tisch in 2004 that we hire Tom. Of course, my father didn’t
    need to be convinced. He saw what we have all seen, a man who has a singular
    focus and incredible dedication when it comes to his work. In so many ways, Tom
    represents to me who and what the head coach of our franchise should be.”




    Coughlin is 74-54 in the regular season during his tenure with the Giants.
    His eight postseason victories are tied with Bill Parcells for most in franchise
    history.




    "Tom is the right person in the right job at the right time,” Steve Tisch
    said. “I just really appreciate how our players respond to his leadership, and
    obviously our organization has benefitted tremendously because of the
    relationship Tom has with his players.”




    Said Reese, “Tom is a winner and he’s a fighter. And I enjoy and appreciate
    working with him. From where I sit, I couldn’t ask for more in a head
    coach.”

    He absolutely has earned this extension and then some... I'm a little surprised that they didnt give him a longer contract. He more than deserves it.

    I don't know and there is no stand out on the coaching staff right now. I however would like to see the team have someone in the next couple of years ready to take over; to keep the nice level of professionalism, accountability, discipline with the balance of communication, friendship and teamwork between the coaching staff and the players.

    I completely agree. In terms of a longer contract, maybe he didn't want a long contract, you know take it year by year and see how he feels sort of thing?
