According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, Coughlin said he has two or three years of coaching left and wanted to make sure Philadelphia was a place he could win right away before committing to the team.
Schefter’s latest report on Thursday indicates, however, that Coughlin didn't believe Philadelphia was the right fit.
Coughlin resigned from his position with the Giants after 12 seasons and two Super Bowl victories. He has tallied a 170–150 record in 20 NFL seasons with the Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Ben McAdoo, Coughlin’s offensive coordinator in New York the last two seasons, will reportedly be named the Giants’ new head coach.
