The New York Giants will not learn if long-time head coach Tom Coughlin will be fired on Black Monday.
Instead, according to sources, Coughlin is expected to have a meeting with Giants management on January 12th, which is when he’ll learn his fate of keeping his job for a 10th year or being fired. During his long tenure, the Giants were rumored to fire Coughlin, but then the Giants management kept him as their head coach.
This season, the Giants are 6-9 overall. The Giants will play their final 2013 game at home against the Washington Redskins at MetLife Stadium.
The Giants blown the 2013 season after getting off to an 0-6 start. Quarterback Eli Manning has struggled through the year, which is why the Giants struggled.
Manning is 307 of 527 for 3,666 yards. He also has 17 touchdown passes to 26 interceptions.
The 26 interceptions are the most by a quarterback this season. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer and New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith are second with 21 interceptions.
This will be the second straight year that the Giants have missed the postseason under Coughlin. The last time the Giants made the playoffs was when they won the Super Bowl, winning Super Bowl XLVI in 2011 over the New England Patriots.
The Giants also beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII in 2007. In Coughlin’s tenure, the Giants made the postseason five times, including four straight from 2005 through 2008.
But since the 2009 season, the Giants only made the postseason once in 2011. He has a 12-7 postseason record with the two Super Bowl Champions.
Between the Giants and his tenure as the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach from 1995 through 2002, he has a 157-128 record.
