Coughlin Deal Likely Today

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin
The longer the New York Giants waited during the 2007 season, the more valuable that head coach Tom Coughlin became – especially after the team upset the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII; according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, Coughlin is expected to sign a long-term deal which will be announced as early as today.

Coughlin is expected to sign a 4-year deal worth a hair over $20 million, which will assure that he will be around until the 2011 season; back in 2004, Coughlin signed a 4-year, $12 million deal and following last season re-upped for another year for $3.5 million. But with the sudden success of the Giants this past season, it is expected that the Giants will tear up the old agreement and give Coughlin a sweeter contract.
