Giants head coach Tom Coughlin will be back in New York for a 12th season. The long-time head coach was told that he is going to remain with the team in 2015, according to ESPN New York's Dan Graziano. The 68-year-old was rumored to be on the hot seat after two-straight losing seasons.

The Giants finished 6-10 this season and were swept by the Eagles, including a 27-0 shutout in Week 6. Still, the Giants rallied around Coughlin after a 3-9 start and won three of their final four games. The Giants were banged up for a majority of the season at running back, offensive line and cornerback, which definitely stunted their success. However, the emergence of first round pick Odell Beckham Jr. allowed for the Giants to experience a late-season surge and one of quarterback Eli Manning's better seasons.

Coughlin has won two Super Bowls with the Giants and has a record of 176-96 (.545) with the team. In 19 years with the Jaguars and Giants, Coughlin has compiled a record of 304-164 (.539), won five division titles and is likely headed to the Hall of Fame at some point.  He is currently the oldest head coach in the NFL.

Coughlin's Giants are 1-3 against the Eagles under Chip Kelly.
