According to Ralph Vacchiano, the New York Giants have signed head coach Tom Coughlin to a two-year extension that keeps him with the team till the end of the 2014.
Vacchiano says that this move “has been expected or months” and that the new deal will “likely make him one of the highest-paid coaches in the league.” Vacchiano also mentions that before the new deal was reached Coughlin was ranked as the 10th highest paid coach making an average of $2.5 million a year. The highest paid coach in the league, which is Bill Belichick, makes an average of $7.5million a year.
It makes sense for Coughlin to sign a new extension now after coming off a second Superbowl victory against the highest paid coach in the league. With the new deal for Coughlin the Giants will have a lot of stability at the head coaching position for the next three years.
