Tom Coughlin has won two Super Bowls as a head coach and coaches in one of the biggest markets in the world — and it appears he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Coughlin has been dealing with his team suffering one of it’s worst seasons under his watch, but if you’re expecting him to step aside in the near future, you’re very much mistaken.
Speaking about his coaching future on ESPN Radio, Coughlin mentioned that he not only plans on coaching in 2014, but plans on coaching well beyond that.
“I certainly do, and I’m blessed with good health and good energy and a routine that I think puts me in the maximum opportunity to stay healthy. The other issue, of course, is Judy. If Judy’s healthy, and so on and so forth, and we both feel good about continuing … then no doubt will we feel that way.”
The Giants seem open to allowing Coughlin to coach beyond 2014 as well, but co-owner John Mara says extension talks haven’t yet begun with the head coach.
Still, it sounds as though Coughlin isn’t ready to step away from the NFL and the Giants aren’t ready to see him go. We will have to see if another losing season in New York changes hearts and minds, but it appears everyone is confident that won’t happen.
