To end any doubt: According to the Daily News, John Mara said that Tom Coughlin will be back as the head coach of the New York Giants next year. Whether his assistants remain is unclear.
“There was never any doubt he was going to be back next season,” Mara said. “There was never any doubt in my mind. There was never any doubt in Steve Tisch’s mind. There was never any doubt in the organization’s mind.
“I told him that last week. I said ‘Don’t listen to all the nonsense. You’re going to be back next season. We still believe in you and we want you as your coach.”
