The Philadelphia Eagles will face the New York Giants to end the regular season. It’ll also mark the end of the Tom Coughlin era as the long-time Giants head coach will resign after the game.

As we reported on Wednesday, the Giants are not the only team looking for a new head coach. The Eagles fired Chip Kelly and named Pat Shurmur its interim head coach for this game.

Coughlin will resign after 12 years of coaching the team. He’ll go out on his own terms instead of being fired like Kelly was.

This season, the Giants are 6-9 and were eliminated from postseason play last Saturday night when the Washington Redskins won the NFC East over the Eagles. The Giants were blown out on Sunday without star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who was suspended, against the Minnesota Vikings.

During Coughlin’s tenure, he guided the Giants to two Super Bowl wins over the New England Patriots in 2007 and 2011.

He had been the team’s head coach since the 2004 season. The team has won 10 wins or more just four times during his tenure.

They won 10 games each during the 2007 and 2010 seasons. In 2005, the Giants won 11 games, while the team won 12 games during the 2008 season.

He’s been an NFL head coach for 20 years. Besides the 12 years with the Giants, he spent 8 years with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He has a career 102-89 record with the Giants and he went 68-60 with the Jaguars. He was 4-4 in the postseason with the Jaguars and went 11-8 with the Giants in the extra season.

He has a career record of 21 games above .500. Besides the two Super Bowls, his teams have won two conference championships and five division championships.

A few years ago, Coughlin was in a similar position, before the team offered him an opportunity to make some changes to his coaching staff to keep his job. But that won’t be happening this time around, as the Giants will look for a new future without Coughlin on the sidelines.
