New York Giants might keep Tom Coughlin for one more year

Changes not coming for Big Blue?

According to NFL media's Ian Rapoport, New York Giants head coach might not be done quite yet. Rapoport reports that the 68-year-old Coughlin still wants to coach one more year.

"I'm told by sources close to Coughlin that he does want to coach next year, he feels young, he feels healthy. He would like to be the coach of the Giants next year, and there's no guarantee that the Giants will make a coaching change, despite what everyone thinks. Some will hinge on how this team does finish down the stretch. Remember this is a very patient organization."

This would appear to be good news for Philadelphia Eagles fans. It appears Coughlin has overstayed his welcome in New York at this point. The G-men are set to finish with a losing record for the second straight season after going 7-9 in 2013. Coughlin's return could mean another year where New York simply puts off hitting the reset button.

Coughlin's future will likely determined how the team finishes out the season. The Giants suffered an embarrassing loss to the Jaguars in Week 13 but rebounded with a win over the Titans. New York is 4-9 entering a matchup against the lifeless-looking Washington Redskins. Then they play away in St. Louis before coming home to finish off the season against the Eagles. Philadelphia may or may not have anything to play for in Week 17 depending if they beat the Cowboys and find a way to clinch the NFC East in Week 16.
