Giants owner hopes Tom Coughlin will join team as consultant

Friday February 5th, 2016

Giants president John Mara said Friday that he hopes former head coach Tom Coughlin will take a job as a consultant with the team, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Coughlin coached the Giants for 12 years before resigning at the end of this season, following two consecutive 6–10 seasons. After leaving the Giants, Coughlin was linked to the head coaching vacancies with the Eagles and 49ers.

When Coughlin held his farewell press conference, Mara said that he hoped Coughlin would consider taking a job advising the team on personnel matters.
