Yes, former Jaguars and Giants coach Tom Coughlin has joined the league office. More details regarding his role have emerged.
He’ll be a “senior advisor” to the league’s football operations department. In that capacity, the two-time Super Bowl winner will work closely with executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent and all game-related committees, from the Competition Committee to the Health and Safety Committee, the Coaches Subcommittee, the General Managers Advisory Committee, the Combine Review Committee, and the NCAA Rules and Oversight Committee.
Coughlin, per a source with knowledge of the situation, also will provide strategic guidance on matters like the draft, the Pro Bowl, playing rules, coaching techniques, and football personnel development.
It’s a great way for Coughlin to stay in the game, and teams that may soon be hiring new coaches should consider adding Coughlin to the list of candidates.
