I get the feeling Tom Coughlin will be in New York for as long as he chooses to stay.
Coughlin, 67, is the oldest coach in the NFL, but told ESPN Radio’s “The Ian O’Connor Show,” that he can see himself coaching the New York Giants for multiple years beyond the 2014 season.
“I certainly do, and I’m blessed with good health and good energy and a routine that I think puts me in the maximum opportunity to stay healthy,” Coughlin said before mentioning his wife. “The other issue, of course, is Judy. If Judy’s healthy, and so on and so forth, and we both feel good about continuing … then no doubt will we feel that way.”
Coughlin will return for his 11th season as Giants coach with a revamped staff and two Super Bowl rings that ultimately allow him to decide when he leaves this game.
“He’s going to be our coach here next year,” Mara said, “and hopefully for longer than that, but we haven’t sat down to even talk about that yet.”
