Jay Glazer of FOX Sports (per Mike Garafolo) reports that appears as though Giants HC Tom Coughlin will “ride off in the sunset” after today’s game.
Glazer mentioned that the Giants don’t plan to fire him, and adds that it’s more likely to be a mutual parting of ways.
If the Giants do end up moving on, they reportedly like OC Ben McAdoo as a potential replacement.
A few days ago, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports mentioned that Coughlin could resign on Monday.
“This is a different Tom Coughlin, and I think he’s ready to move away,” Garafolo said. “A lot of people are talking as if it’s an inevitability that on Monday he is going to resign. I am hearing that from a lot of people.”
Following the team’s loss to the Panthers, Coughlin was seen on the field playing with his grand kids. People seem to think this is a different Tom Coughlin, according to Garafolo.
The Giants head-coaching position could be a popular job if it were to end up being available. Saints HC Sean Payton could be a name to watch for the Giants as well.
Coughlin, 69, is in his 12th season as Giants’ head coach and has led them to a record of 102-89 (53.4 percent) to go along with five playoff appearances and two Super Bowl titles.
We’ll have more regarding Coughlin’s future with the team as the news is available.
