Tom Coughlin will sign a one-year extension with the Giants, keeping him under contract through 2016.
The Giants have a long-standing policy of not letting their head coach go into a season as a "lame duck." So Coughlin will get another year tacked on to his deal, the exact same move the organization executed with him last year. Regardless, Coughlin needs to get the Giants back to the playoffs for the first time since 2011 if he wants any kind of real job security. Feb 23 - 12:26 PM

The New York Daily News reports the Giants will soon sign coach Tom Coughlin to a "short" extension.

This will prevent Coughlin from entering 2015 as a contract-year "lame duck." Coughlin signed a one-year extension around this same time last year. The new deal figures to be similar. The Giants' offense got steadily better under first-year OC Ben McAdoo over the course of 2014, and they'll hope new DC Steve Spagnuolo can fix their defense. Coughlin turns 69 this August.

Tom Coughlin has been told he will return to the Giants in 2015.

Coughlin has gone 22-26 over the last three seasons, failing to make the playoffs each year. But the Giants were able to finish strong once again this season, winning three of their final four games on the backs of Eli Manning and Odell Beckham. Coughlin, 68, clearly has more leash than most NFL coaches because he's won two Super Bowls for the Giants. But anything short of a playoff berth in 2015 should be the end of his run. There's no word yet on the fate of DC Perry Fewell, who may end up taking the fall here.

The New York Post reports there's a "99.9 percent" chance Tom Coughlin remains the Giants' head coach in 2015.

With the Giants on a two-game win streak and sitting at 5-9, Coughlin's odds of keeping his job have increased the past couple weeks after it was guesstimated his chances of coming back were 50-50 last month. If 68-year-old Coughlin is back as the Giants' head coach, we'd expect the higher-ups to force his hand with coaching staff changes -- particularly DC Perry Fewell.

Giants signed head coach Tom Coughlin to a one-year, $7 million extension.

Coughlin is now signed through 2015. The 67-year-old has led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles and will likely be able to coach the team for however long he pleases, though the front office stepped in this offseason to force some changes to Coughlin's coaching staff. Coughlin "could see himself" coaching past 2014.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin told ESPN Radio he could see himself coaching multiple years past 2014.

The 67-year-old Coughlin cited his and his wife Judy's good health as reasons pushing him to stay in the NFL. Co-owner John Mara confirmed Coughlin would be the Giants' head coach at least next season "and hopefully for longer than that." Coughlin is 97-73 with two Super Bowl wins in 10 seasons with the G-Men.

Coach Tom Coughlin confirmed he will continue coaching the Giants.

Coughlin has two Super Bowl titles, five playoff appearances and a 90-70 record in ten seasons at the helm of the Giants. So despite a disappointing 2013 campaign that saw the G-Men start 0-6, he likely has a lifetime pass from the Mara family. Coughlin, 67, isn't ready to retire just yet.

At his Monday press conference, coach Tom Coughlin threw support behind and insisted he maintains faith in offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

Gilbride's offense was shut out for the second time this season in Sunday's loss to Seattle, and the longtime Giants coordinator has come under much fire for his playcalling and scheme in a forgettable year for New York's NFC team. Gilbride has been the Giants' offensive coordinator since 2007, and spent three years as Eli Manning's quarterbacks coach before that. His 2013 offense ranks 28th in yards per game and 30th in points per game.
