Photo Credited (Nam. Huh/ AP) The New York Giants are (0-6) and things seem to be getting worst before they will get better. One of the things the Giants front office must start to think about is Tom Coughlin’s future with the team. Tom Coughlin’s contract expires after next season, and there is concern that he may be a lame duck coach by next season. Tom Coughlin is one of the most respected coaches in the league and has two Super Bowl wins with the Giants. If the Giants can avoid (0-16), (1-15), and (2-14) Tom Coughlin should be the head coach next season. The Giants hopefully can get at least four to five against the rest of their schedule, and that’s to make a good argument for keeping Coughlin. There probably is enough worry in the front office about Coughlin losing his locker room. When seasons go like this it has to be hard for teams to stay motivated and interested in what is going on. That’s why teams have coaches, to not only teach them plays and how to play football, but to motivate and inspire their players. The big question concerning Tom Coughlin is if he can still motivate his players and get them to play better. Justin Tuck and Antrel Rolle have already made public comments of support for Coughlin. They also made comments condemning any player that does not follow Tom Coughlin’s lead. There has been speculation that Tom Coughlin might retire after this season, whether the Giants salvage it or not. That is the cause of the speculation of whether the Giants will keep him as coach next season. Now the front office has said his job is safe, but in New York no sports job is safe. If the worst case scenario came to be and the Giants went (0-16) for the season, Tom Coughlin would probably retire and the Giants would have to find a new coach. Who is out there that can replace Tom Coughlin as head coach? The Giants would want a veteran coach to come in and be the head coach. They normally do not promote coordinators to head coach. Just look at all the quality head coaches who were coordinators and assistants for the Giants. Some of the head coaches the Giants missed out on include Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, and Bill Belichick all were coordinators and assistants for the Giants before becoming head coaches. If Tom Coughlin leaves or is fired the next coach has big shoes to fill.
