In news that is anything but a surprise the New York Giants made if official on Wednesday that head coach Tom Coughlin will receive a contract extension through the 2016 season.

Since becoming the Giants' coach in 2004, Coughlin is 96-80 (.545) in the regular season and 8-3 (.727) in the postseason with two Super Bowl titles. Coughlin is the second-longest head-coaching tenure in the 90-year history of the franchise. Hall of Famer Steve Owen coached the team from 1930-53.

Coughlin, 69 next season, hinted during the scouting combine a few weeks ago that this news was forthcoming.

The Giants also officially announced the signings of fullback Henry Hynoski, running back Chris Ogbannaya and linebacker Mark Herzlich.

The Giants have yet to offically announce the signings of free agents Shane Vereen, Dwayne Harris, Jonathan Casillas, J.T. Thomas and Marshall Newhouse.
