Giants coach Tom Coughlin: No plans to retire

Thursday August 14th, 2014

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin says he doesn’t plan on retiring any time soon. 

Coughlin, 67, has a 158-130 record in 18 seasons coaching the Giants and the Jacksonville Jaguars.    

Coughlin’s teams have won five division titles and two Super Bowl championships in his 10 years in New York, and he said that he still has something to prove, especially after the Giants missed the playoffs last season. 

"I approach it that way because I do have a lot to prove. It’s the only way to go,” Coughlin said to Steve Politi of The Star-Ledger. “I think when that competitiveness is not there, it’s time for people to do something else. It’s still there for me.

Coughlin said he is good health and will continue on the sidelines for as long as he can. 

"I think it’s because the attitude that I have, the regimen that I believe in, and quite frankly, this is what I do," Coughlin said. "I don’t have a lot of other things in my life. I’ve been blessed with a beautiful wife (Judy). I’ve got a great family."
