The New York Giants and Head Coach Tom Coughlin have agreed on a one-year extension of his current contract that will keep him as head coach of the Giants into the 2016 season.
As everyone knows this is a make or break season for Tom Coughlin, a two time Super Bowl winning head coach, and his coaches to right the ship and put the Giants in a position to either win the division or somehow make the playoffs. Coughlin’s teams have missed the playoffs three straight years after winning the Super Bowl in 2011.
This signing is probably a formality meaning if Coughlin doesn’t win this year he may still be let go even with another year to go on his contract. Plus the Giants front office don’t like to have their head coaches hanging on lame duck contracts.
Hopefully Coughlin can turn things around this season with second year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo coming up with innovative schemes for Victor Cruz and Offensive Rookie of the Year Odell Beckham Jr. and new/old defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo re-energizing a struggling defense.
