Tom Coughlin has stepped down from his post as the New York Giants head coach on Monday. Coughlin has won two Super Bowls with the Giants but couldn’t guide the side to playoffs since 2011.
Tom Coughlin replaced Jim Fassel to become the head coach of the Giants in 2004. This was also the rookie season of Eli Manning. Coughlin won his second Super Bowl with the Giants in 2011, but failed to take the team to playoffs since then. Coughlin was considered a hall-of-fame level coach and will be dearly missed. He ended with a 102-90 win record as a Giants coach.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as head coach of the New York Football Giants,” Coughlin revealed on Monday. “This is a not a sad occasion for me. I have spent 15 years with this organization as an assistant and head coach and was fortunate to be part of three Super Bowl winning teams. A Lombardi Trophy every five years is an achievement in which we all take great pride.”
