Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin Hopes To Return In 2012

At age 65, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin became the oldest head coach to win a Super Bowl. With two Lombardi Trophies on his resume, Coughlin is a potential Hall of Famer, but has no plans to hang up his whistle.

"I certainly hope so," Coughlin said on Monday when asked if he is coming back next season. "My intentions are to be that way. I do have some ownership that has to give approval, but I’m looking forward to it."

Coughlin has been left for dead several times by the media, including once or twice in this space. With two Super Bowl wins in the last five seasons, there's no question that Giants ownership will let Coughlin continue to coach their team for as long as he wants to coach the team.

Coughlin also addressed how little he thinks about his own legacy.

"It’s not about me and this is what we talk about all the time," said Coughlin. "We’re about team, we’re not about individuals. We’re about the team and what’s in the best interest of our team, and we feel that all our power is generated from team.

"We’re certainly very cognizant of some of the superior individuals that we have on our team, thank goodness, but it is the team that provides us with our strength, and our ability to perform under pressure, whether it is good or bad, and that’s the way we think."
