What has been expected to come at some point this offseason, the New York Giants have given Head Coach Tom Coughlin a new contract extension. After winning his second Super Bowl as coach of the Giants, Coughlin has been rewarded with a nice 3 year, $20 million dollar extension. Now, there is no doubt this contract is well deserved for Coughlin, who has been on the ‘hot seat’ over the last few seasons after failing to make the playoffs in 2009, and 2010, and then again in 2011 after the Giants lost 4 straight games. In fact, in all but 1 season as coach, Coughlin has gotten plenty of heat, that one season would be in 2008, when the Giants were 12-4, and the NFC’s #1 seed in the playoffs. Even after that season ended with a first round loss to the Eagles, the media, and some fans, were back to questioning Coughlin’s coaching.
