Tom Coughlin has stepped down as the Giants head coach after the team went 6-10 for a second-straight season.

Tom Coughlin will go down as one of the greatest coaches in NFL history with his long successful career and two Super Bowl rings, but after 12 seasons with the New York Giants he has resigned as head coach, likely ending the 69-year-old’s coaching career that started as a graduate assistant at Syracuse in 1969. Though he said he has not ruled out the possibility of coaching somewhere else.

The Giants inability to won consistently despite their talent combined with the team missing the playoffs the previous four seasons and six of the last seven, the two championships just we not enough to secure his future.

Though Coughlin was not fired, after a second-straight 6-10 season it seems obvious that the Giants organization was waiting for him to either retire or resign. Had they been winning and the team gone out and given him a vote of confidence, there is no way he could no longer be with he organization.

Coughlin coached 20 seasons in the NFL, going 170-150 overall between the Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars. Things just seemed to stagnate under Coughlin and the franchise just needed a change.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
