New York Giants co-owner John Mara said on Friday at the site of Super Bowl 50 he plans to speak with Tom Coughlin who was the head coach of the Giants football team 2004-2015. Coughlin resigned as the head coach of the New York Giants on January 4, 2016 after the Giants failed to make it to the playoffs for the fourth straight season after the Giants won XLVI in the 2011 football season. Coughlin was interviewed by the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers to replace Charles "Chip" Kelly and Jim Tomsula respectively but the Eagles hired Doug Pederson to replace Kelly and the 49ers hired Kelly to replace Tomsula as the head coaches of their respective football teams. Mara plans to speak with Coughlin after the conclusion of Super Bowl 50 to see if Coughlin is interested in working for him in what would likely be an advisory role before the start of the 2016 football season. Coughlin insists that his resignation as the head coach of the Giants is not the end of his coaching career in the National Football League.
