Barber discussed the situation on the radio
"We tried (to set up a meeting). He said no, through his agent, (Giants vice president of communications) Pat Hanlon," Barber said on ESPN Radio. (via New York Post)
Barber is hopeful about a future meeting with his old coach who he has been critical of
"But one of these days I'm sure it'll happen, because as we know, time heals all wounds. And I think at the end of the day, Giants fans, despite their dislike of me at times, know that I was one of the guys that put (it) on the line every time I put on my uniform."
Whether that meeting with Coughlin happens or not, Barber confirmed that he is indeed done with a comeback attempt.
