Tom Coughlin’s future remains murky, with the Giants or elsewhere.
At a time when most presume that it’s a done deal that he’ll be leaving the Giants and many think he’ll choose to resign in lieu of being fired, there’s an emerging sense that Coughlin will not walk away. This would force the Giants to either fire him or keep him.
And that could result in a squabble between ownership, with a very real possibility that co-owner Steve Tisch may wans to move on and that co-owner John Mara may not want to move on. Which means that Coughlin, who is under contract for one more year, could be back with the Giants, after all.
If the Giants decide to move on, it’s possible that Coughlin will resurface elsewhere, quickly. With a pair of Super Bowl wins and a Hall of Fame resume, a market could quickly develop for his services.
