Giants co-owner John Mara said he plans to talk with Tom Coughlin about a position with the organization.
"He’s been away, but I do plan on talking," Mara said. "There’s still hope." Coughlin interviewed with the Eagles and 49ers after "resigning" from the Giants following the season. Coughlin reportedly could have landed the Eagles' job, but the majority of his staff is still under contract in New York. It is unclear if Coughlin would welcome a front office job with the team which basically forced him out of coaching a month ago. Feb 6 - 12:48 PM

The New York Daily News' Gary Myers reports Tom Coughlin could have had the Eagles' job, but withdrew because "the core of his staff is under contract (in New York) and staying with Ben McAdoo."

It's probably a bitter pill to swallow for Coughlin, who wants to keep coaching at age 69, but isn't in position to assemble an entire staff on the fly. With the 49ers also off the board after hiring Chip Kelly, Coughlin could be out of luck for 2016.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Coughlin has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Eagles' head-coaching vacancy.

And Philadelphia whiffs again. After missing out on Adam Gase (Dolphins) and Ben McAdoo (Giants), the Eagles failed to prove they were the "right fit" for the 69-year-old Coughlin, who understandably wants to win right away. The good news for Philadelphia is Chiefs OC Doug Pederson, who was thought to be a favorite early this week, is still available. Their attention will likely turn to him once the Chiefs are eliminated from the playoffs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will have a "face-to-face meeting" with Tom Coughlin on Thursday.

Rapoport has reported Coughlin and the Eagles "are far down the line" in negotiations, so this meeting could be to finalize a deal. Coughlin met with Philadelphia on Monday, but that was reported as an informal session. This meeting could also serve as a formal interview. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported the Eagles are focused "squarely" on Coughlin, and momentum suggests this deal will get done before the weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles have focused their "attention squarely" on ex-Giants coach Tom Coughlin.

Ben McAdoo was thought to be Philly's top candidate, but the former coordinator was promoted to head coach in New York. Now the Eagles are focused on his former boss. Schefter reports "the two sides have intensified conversations" since McAdoo went off the market, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the two sides "are far down the line." It sounds like an announcement could be imminent. Chiefs OC Doug Pederson is also believed to be a favorite, but Philadelphia might not want to wait for the Chiefs' playoff run to end. Coughlin reportedly believes he has 2-3 years left in him and is interested in winning right away.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are meeting with ex-Giants coach Tom Coughlin Tuesday.

CEO Jed York is in Houston for the owners meetings, so Coughlin will talk with GM Trent Baalke. Coughlin met with the Eagles Monday and seems serious about continuing his coaching career. Even so, San Francisco seems like an odd fit. At 69, Coughlin is likely not interested in waiting through a rebuild, which the 49ers certainly are. It would be surprising if Coughlin landed in San Francisco.
Jan 12 - 12:38 PM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Giants have granted the 49ers permission to interview Tom Coughlin for their head-coaching vacancy.

The 49ers are the second team to express interest in the 69-year-old coach. He's reportedly meeting with the Eagles on Monday. Coughlin would seem to be an ill fit for the 49ers, who are working on a gut job of their roster after foolishly firing Jim Harbaugh last offseason.
Jan 11 - 3:17 PM

Ex-Giants coach Tom Coughlin will interview for the Eagles' head-coaching vacancy Monday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the meeting will be "more of a feeling-out" than an actual interview. It is unclear how serious of a candidate the 69-year-old is. The Eagles have already interviewed Giants OC Ben McAdoo, and it is possible this meeting will serve as an information-gathering session on the young coordinator. Coughlin has hinted he still has a future in football, however, and could be interested in sticking it to his former team.
Jan 11 - 9:34 AM

Eagles have requested to interview ex-Giants coach Tom Coughlin for their head-coaching vacancy.

Coughlin "resigned" with a year left on his deal, meaning the Giants still had to grant permission for the interview. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the two sides will meet Monday, but says it will be "more of a feeling-out" than an interview. It is still unclear how much interest Coughlin has in returning to the sidelines, and it is still unclear how much interest he has in the Eagles. Coughlin was critical of the decision to fire Chip Kelly after three seasons, so he may not view Philadelphia as the correct fit even if he intends to continue coaching.

Jan 9 - 9:02 AM

Giants CEO John Mara suggested Tom Coughlin could return to the team in a consultant or advisor role.

Mara praised Coughlin's abilities as a talent evaluator and seemed serious about bringing the former coach back. In his press conference Tuesday morning, Coughlin would not rule out a return to coaching, although a return to a front-office role might make more sense for the 69-year-old.
Jan 5 - 10:57 AM

Ex-Giants coach Tom Coughlin is open to continuing his career.

Both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport have reported so. Coughlin's departure from the Giants has been termed a resignation, not a retirement. Coughlin turns 70 in August, but perhaps he could interest a team that believes it's close to competing. We ultimately suspect Coughlin won't be on the sidelines in 2016.
Jan 4 - 2:38 PM

Coach Tom Coughlin informed the Giants of his resignation.

Change was inevitable after the Giants' third straight losing season. Coughlin won two Super Bowls in 12 years at the helm, but oversaw perennially volatile squads. 2015 was a particularly hard-to-believe season, with the Giants suffering stunning loss after stunning loss. It could have been coincidence, but Coughlin's teams have also annually been amongst the most injured in the league. Coughlin is one of the better coaches in league history — the Jaguars still haven't replaced him — but now 69, he's probably roamed his last sideline. If so, Coughlin goes out with a 170-150 career record, and 12-7 playoff mark.
Jan 4 - 2:15 PM

Tom Coughlin will meet with Giants ownership Monday afternoon.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano said it sounds like a decision has already been made, but he did not expand on what that decision is likely to be. The tea leaves suggest Coughlin will either resign or be fired. Coughlin asked his immediate family to be with him at the game Sunday, and FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reported Coughlin was considering resigning. Coughlin won two Super Bowls in his 12 seasons with the Giants, but he has not had a winning season since 2012 and is 19-29 the last three years.
Jan 4 - 11:20 AM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports Tom Coughlin could resign Monday.

"This is a different Tom Coughlin, and I think he's ready to move away," Garafolo said. "A lot of people are talking as if it's an inevitability that on Monday he is going to resign. I am hearing that from a lot of people." Coughlin's seat is as hot as anyone's in the league, and he may decide to resign rather than get fired. The two sides could also agree to "mutually" part ways. Coughlin has survived several expected firings during his run in New York, but it feels like this season will be his last leading the Giants.

Jan 2 - 11:52 AM

Coach Tom Coughlin said he is not worried about his job after the Giants' embarrassing loss Sunday night.

"That’ll all take care of itself," said Coughlin. "I don’t coach worrying about that." Coughlin has survived several expected firings during his decade-plus reign in New York, but most beat reporters admit this season feels different. New York has failed to reach the postseason for four years in a row and has not had a winning season since 2012. GM Jerry Reese should also shoulder a lot of the blame for putting together a razor-thin depth chart which lacks defensive talent, but his job in not believed to be in serious danger.
