After winning his second Super Bowl title in four seasons, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is in line for a big raise and it appears it is in the works. Last season, Coughlin was running the Giants under a one-year contract extension, but now, he can look for a large raise.
Speaking to reporters yesterday at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach, Florida, Giants co-owner John Mara spoke about Coughlin’s future with the franchise. “We’ve had a lot of good discussions since the Super Bowl, and I have no doubt it’s going to get done soon. As I’ve said, Tom is our guy, and we think he’s the best coach in the league,” said Mara. While fans of other teams might dispute that statement, one thing about Coughlin is undeniable. At age 66, he is the oldest head coach in the league
