At age 66 and with two Super Bowl rings, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin seems to be on the waning end of his career as an NFL coach. Giants corner back Terrell Thomas believes Coughlin’s career might be ending a bit sooner than people think. While appearing on NFL Network today, the corner says he believes Coughlin only has one year left and will retired following the 2013 NFL season.
“I think he has one more in him,” Thomas said. “We have a great nucleus of guys, and I don’t think he wants to give that up. That passion is still burning within him. He’s in that facility all day every day; he’s going crazy not being able to coach and watch film. He lives and breathes football. He has everybody in there all day, every day, in the offseason.”
Coughlin has not discussed his future with the team, but at his age, it seems unlikely that he will be the head coach of the Giants for much longer.
Thomas believes if he and the Giants can win a Super Bowl, Coughlin will retire.
“I think he wants to go out on top,” Thomas said of Coughlin. “Hopefully, we can get it right, and bring a Super Bowl home in Giants Stadium.”
Would definitely be interesting to see a Giants Super Bowl in Giants Stadium with the headlines of Coughlin’s last game.
