Giants announce Tom Coughlin to return as coach in 2015
Monday December 29th, 2014

The New York Giants have told head coach Tom Coughlin that he will return in 2015, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News also reports general manager Jerry Reese will return next season.

The Giants went 6-10 this season, finishing third in the NFC East and missing the playoffs for the third straight season, due largely to injuries and defensive struggles. New York opened the season 3-2, but lost its next seven games to drop to 3-9 by mid-December.

According to the report, Coughlin has a meeting with Giants president John Mara scheduled for later in the day Monday to discuss potential staff changes.
