Coughlin gets contract extension
By Ohm Youngmisuk
The Giants rewarded coach Tom Coughlin for his second Super Bowl victory with a contract extension that will keep him signed through 2014.
The extension was expected after Coughlin guided the Giants to their second Super Bowl title since the 2007 season. Coughlin's contract was set to expire after this season.
The team did not announce terms, but a source confirmed that Coughlin's deal begins immediately and is actually a three-year contract worth $20 million. The deal makes Coughlin one of the highest-paid coaches in the league.
