MMQB's Peter King said Tom Coughlin "sounded very much like he’d like to coach next year."
This is not surprising considering Coughlin interviewed with both the 49ers and Eagles after "resigning" from the Giants, but he understands his age will be a concern. "It’ll take two to tango," Coughlin said. "The 70-year-old-man stuff will be a factor, and I’m sure they’ll know this would be a three- or four-year thing." Coughlin will certainly seek out opportunities next offseason, but it would be somewhat surprising if an organization decides to hitch its wagon to a 70-year-old coach. May 16 - 10:45 AM

Tom Coughlin said he is not planning on taking a job with the Giants.

Giants co-owner John Mara has talked about bringing Coughlin back in something of a consulting role, but the veteran coach is understandably not interested after being forced out as head coach. "I really don't see how, once the decision was made," Coughlin said. "Move on, is what I think I'm saying." Coughlin flirted with a couple teams during the coaching carousel, but it looks like the 69-year-old will sit this season out.
Mar 31 - 9:42 AM

Former Giants coach Tom Coughlin admits the team forced him into his "resignation" after the season.

"Hey, do I agree with the move? Of course not," Coughlin said. "It hurts. It hurts. Former is not a good word. I don’t like the word but that’s the way it is." It was pretty clear in the days after Coughlin's announcement that he still had the itch to keep coaching, and that the resignation wasn't completely his idea. The 69-year-old still says he has a desire to be a head coach.

In a television interview, Tom Coughlin reiterated he is not retired.

"I'm not ret ... I don't like that word," Coughlin said. "I'm way too young for that." Coughlin added he is not handling being unemployed "very well." Giants co-owner John Mara said before the Super Bowl he would speak with Coughlin about a position with the organization. It sounds like the former coach would be open to a job.

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.

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.
Jan 14 - 2:55 PM

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.
Jan 14 - 1:02 PM

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.
Jan 14 - 10:01 AM

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.

Jan 14 - 8:42 AM

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.
