Tom Coughlin receives contract extension from New York Giants


New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin announced that he had received a one-year contract extension during his press conference at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Friday. The agreement will take him through the 2015 season.

The announcement comes as no surprise as the Giants rarely let their head coach enter into a “lame duck” situation where he is coaching in the final year of his contract. The 67-year-old coach told reporters that the extension was “never a concern to me.”

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Coughlin should be making about the same as he did this past year, which is about $7 million.

In six seasons as the team’s head coach, Coughlin has compiled a 90-70 record with five playoff appearances, three division titles and two Super Bowl championships (XLII and XLVI).
