Coughlin Agrees to Extension Through 2016 With NFL GiantsRob Gloster
Tom Coughlin has agreed to a one-year contract extension that will keep him as coach of the New York Giants through the 2016 National Football League season, the team said.
Coughlin, 68, who has won two Super Bowls with the Giants and has a 96-80 record in 11 seasons with New York, has the second-longest tenure of any Giants coach, trailing only Steve Owen -- who coached from 1930 to 1953.
Coughlin’s 96 regular-season victories are second in franchise history to Owen’s 153, the Giants said on their website.
Before joining the Giants in 2004, Coughlin went 68-60 in eight seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Coughlin has the third-longest tenure with one team among current NFL head coaches, trailing New England’s Bill Belichick (15 seasons) and Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis (12 seasons).
