Giants give Tom Coughlin deserved extension

Four months after he led the New York Giants to their second Super Bowl title in four years, the Giants extended the contract of coach Tom Coughlin.

Coughlin and Big Blue signed a three year extension worth $20 million, making him the third highest paid NFL coach per season, behind Bill Belichick and Mike Shanahan.

To say that he deserved it is the understatement of the year. Ever since he came here, Coughlin has found a way to dodge the crticism and guided the Giants with a firm hand. He finally changed his own coaching strategy in 2007, and united his team in the process as New York went on its first Super Bowl run.

Now players want to play for Coughlin, and as a result he has the team he wanted when he came to New York in 2004. A team that is disciplined, plays hard and makes no excuses. That is why New York has won two Super Bowls in Coughlin's career with the Giants.

Now, the Giants can rest asure that Coughlin will retire as a Giant when he hangs up the head-sets. And who knows maybe Coughlin will add one more trophy to that display case while he's at it.
