Report: Tom Coughlin not ready to retire, may coach again

AP

Tom Coughlin might be out of New York, but he may not be out of football.

The 69-year-old former Giants coach could come back elsewhere.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, Coughlin is not retiring, and “if the right opportunity presents itself” he will continue to coach.

Coughlin has a 170-150 record in 20 seasons, and has a pair of Super Bowl championships on his resume.

And while recent years haven’t brought the same kind of playoff success, Coughlin has the kind of background that will make him attractive to certain organizations.

  1. Might as well take the Miami job and start prepping for retirement in the sunshine state.

  2. If he lands on a decent team with some pieces in place then it could be a nice fit for 3 or 4 years. I can’t see him jumping into a rebuild like my horrible Dolphins.

  3. I don’t think Tom would work for the Miami or Cleveland ownerships. It would take a much more stable, classy owner than these two clown cars have.

  4. I’d love to see him come to the Lions but I don’t know whether to think that they are a full rebuild or a few tweaks with the right coaching and front office staff.

  5. Assuming Pagano is out in Indy, I think that’s an ideal spot for Coughlin with a QB already in place. Not sure he’d be willing to work with Grigson though, and I can’t say as a blame him

  6. Some perpetual sad team like Cleveland should sign him to a 4 yr deal to be the GM/HC with complete control. If anything, he’ll definitely make your franchise respectable.

  7. Tom should go back to Jacksonville where it all started and get them young guns in shape

  8. I see him taking a consulting job with Jaguars. His family and home is in Jacksonville, as a consultant he wouldn’t have the workload a Head Coach has…more time to spend with his family and his charity work.

  9. Shad: Fire Gus, pick this great coach. He has one regret in his life of not winning superbowl while he was a coach here. Please bring Coughlin home.

  10. Consult with the Pats for the playoffs. Nobody would know how to fix what beats the Pats better than Coughlin. Boston connection and connection to Belichick.

  11. Some perpetual sad team like Cleveland should sign him to a 4 yr deal to be the GM/HC with complete control. If anything, he’ll definitely make your franchise respectable.

    All respect to Coughlin, but I don’t think there’s any reason to think giving this guy GM duties at 70 years old is a good idea.

  12. Lmao Philly fans. TC would never go to that clown show organization you have there. That’d be like working for a 5 start hotel and then accepting a job at the Motel 8. #chipkellyruinedyourpatheticfranchise

  13. Coughlin is just what the Browns need. A coach with intensity and leadership. He’d have an opportunity to draft a QB, and then another key player at 32.

  14. There’s a report going around that the Giants aren’t interested in Chip Kelly. Doubt it’s true, but if on the off chance that it is…I’d hold off on the #chipkellyruinedyourpatheticfranchise hashtag for a few days buddy.

  15. I think he should retire. He’s a great coach without a doubt, his players play hard for him, esp the defensive guys. Its obvious that scary strict Coughlin is gone. It’s not his fault the Giants had poor personnel but things like babying Odell amongst others have shown the time has passed him by. Theres nothing wrong with that, but I think his time is over and hes kind of old to restart somewhere else. If he wants to keep coaching he’s earned it, but I think it’s time to step down.

  16. If the Giants can get Sean Payton then its a good move by the Giants….if they go for the next whiz kid, good luck with that….

  17. Coughlin should go to Cleveland on a 4-5 year contract.
    Then after he’s fired in 2 years, he gets to collect the remainder as a retirement bonus.

  18. No coach walks away from a team with an elite QB leader. This says the Giants don’t have one.
