Former Giants coach Tom Coughlin plans to join the NFL’s football operations department, according to ESPN's Jim Trotter.
Coughlin stepped down as head coach of the New York Giants in January after spending 12 seasons with the team. The Giants’ front office was hoping for his return as a consultant but Coughlin decided not to return to the team in any capacity.
The NFL has not yet specified details of Coughlin’s new position. Troy Vincent heads the department, which focuses on officiating, rules and communication with players and coaches.
While head coach of the Giants, he won two Super Bowls with the team in 2007 and 2011. He also coached eight seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He holds a 170–150 record in his 20 NFL seasons.
