New, comments

The Giants coach touched on several topics at the 2013 NFL Combine, including the idea that he would coach just one more season.

Tom Coughlin addressed media members at the 2013 NFL Combine on Friday afternoon, and among the topics discussed were the comments made by Terrell Thomas suggesting that Coughlin would only coach one more season. Coughlin quickly dismissed that notion.

"I don’t even know how a young man would come to that statement," Coughlin said. "But I approach each year the way I’ve always approached them. The energy’s flowing good. I’m excited about it and looking forward to this offseason, getting our football team together again."

In an interview earlier in the week, Thomas said he actually thought 2012 would be it for Coughlin, then added "I think he has one more [year] in him."

Coughlin, who at 66 years old is the oldest head coach in the league, is 91-64 since taking the Giants job in 2004 and has won two Super Bowls with the franchise. If he were in fact to decide to retire following the 2013, though, these might be some potential candidates to replace him.
