Since the New York Giants won their second Super Bowl with Tom Coughlin as head coach last month there has been no question that Coughlin would be receiving a new long-term contract from the organization. The questions have been when that would happen, and how long the contract would be for.
Giants co-owner John Mara answered one of those questions on Tuesday, saying that Coughlin and the Giants would likely have a deal in the next 4-6 weeks.
Coughlin, 66, has been operating on one-year contract extensions in recent seasons. No word on how long this one will be, but it will undoubtedly be a multi-year deal.
The Giants coach, incidentally, took some time to poke the New York Jets from the NFL owners' meetings on Tuesday.
Asked if Tebow trade was a Jets plea for attention, Coughlin says: "New Yorkers know who won the world championship." For TC, that's a zing.— Bart Hubbuch (@NYPost_Hubbuch) March 28, 2012
Re: Jets. Coughlin says New Yorkers "don't need the back pages to tell them who won" the Super Bowl. TC is on a roll!— Bart Hubbuch (@NYPost_Hubbuch) March 28, 2012
