INDIANAPOLIS (WFAN/AP) — Tom Coughlin is planning to go for a third Super Bowl win with the New York Giants next season.
Speaking early Monday morning at a news conference, the 65-year-old coach says he has every intention of returning to coach the team, although management will have a say in that.
“I certainly hope so,” he said. “My intentions are it to be that way. I’ve got some ownership that has to give approval, but I’m looking forward to it.”
Is Coughlin worthy of a bust in the Pro Football Hall of Fame? It’s a fair question after earning his second Super Bowl ring, but Coughlin won’t entertain the thought.
“It’s not about me, and this is what we talk about all the time,” said Coughlin. We’re about team, we’re not about individuals. We’re about the team and what’s in the best interest of our team, and we feel that all our power is generated from team.”
Eli Manning also was on hand at the news conference to receive his second Super Bowl MVP award.
Manning enjoyed the evening with family and friends, and he says his brother, Peyton, congratulated him on his performance and the title.
