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.
Without this 1-year extension, 2014 would've been the final year of the 3-year, $20M contract extension Tom Coughlin signed after SB XLVI.

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).
