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.
