Tiki Barber Gets Cold Shoulder From Tom Coughlin

Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber wanted to meet with Giants coach Tom Coughlin to talk about their strained relationship. Coughlin refused.

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.
