Thursday March 12th, 2015

The New York Giants and head coach Tom Coughlin have agreed to a one-year contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2016 season, the team announced.

Coughlin, 68, is the NFL’s oldest head coach and has led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles. He has 96 regular-season victories, second-most in franchise history, and his eight playoff victories with the Giants tie him with Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells for most ever with the team.

Coughlin has a 164-140 record and 12-7 playoff mark in 19 seasons as an NFL head coach with the Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars. He will be entering his 12th season with the Giants, which is the third-longest tenure among active NFL head coaches.
