There’s been speculation for weeks about whether the Giants will be among the teams looking for new head coaches this week and it’s looking like they will be on the list for the first time since 2004.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Coughlin is expected to “ride off in the sunset” after the Giants finish out their third-straight losing season at home against the Eagles. Glazer’s report comes a couple of days after his colleague Mike Garafolo reported that “a lot of people are talking as if it’s an inevitability that on Monday [Coughlin] is going to resign.”
Multiple reporters at MetLife Stadium have passed along word that Coughlin had a lot of family members on the field during pregame in a change from usual operating procedure on gamedays.
If it is the last day of Coughlin’s tenure, it’s one that will remembered for two Super Bowl championships attained through unexpected runs through the playoffs that culminated in thrilling wins over the Patriots. While things haven’t broken his way recently, those rings ensure Coughlin a highly celebrated place in the long history of the Giants franchise.
