Tom Coughlin Agrees to Contract Extension


Win McNamee/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) — Despite a disappointing 2013 season, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has received a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2015 season.

Coughlin broke the news to reporters Friday at the NFL scouting combine.

The Giants are coming off a season in which they started 0-6 and finished with a 7-9 record. Still, Coughlin has led the Giants to two Super Bowl championships in his 10 seasons as head coach.

“I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to it, to be honest with you,” Coughlin said when talking about the extension. “We’ve had a lot of work going on in our building. I had great confidence it would happen, and it did.”

Coughlin, 67, was entering the final year of a three-year extension he received after winning the 2012 Super Bowl that pays him $6.7 million per season.
