NEW YORK (WFAN) – Tom Coughlin may be the oldest head coach in the NFL, but he’s not about to start thinking about the “R” word.

Coughlin, fresh off his second title with the Giants, is entering the final year of his current contract. An extension is expected, and Coughlin has mentioned in the past that he may be open to coaching past 70.

What’s his secret? The 65-year-old told the Florida Times-Union that he still owns the gusto of a younger man.

“I’m not mentally, not physically, ready (to retire),” said Coughlin. “I feel I have good energy. I’m excited every day. The competitiveness, the nature of the business, is something that I’m still excited about. I don’t wander down that path. I don’t think about retirement. I enjoy the situation I’m in.”

Extending Coughlin’s contract isn’t as much a matter of if, but when. Giants co-owner John Mara told reporters at the team’s Super Bowl ring ceremony last week that a deal would get done “sooner rather than later.”

“I really don’t feel any pull or tug in another direction,” Coughlin said. “I look at it on a yearly basis. In our business, no matter how many years they give you on the contract, it’s a one-year deal anyway.”

The coach, with a career regular season record of 142-114, has received full support at home, too. His wife, Judy, has “never asked” about retirement, Coughlin told the Times-Union.

“(Coaching) grinds on the family a lot more than it grinds on the head coach,” he said.
