Tom Coughlin has informed his coaching staff that the New York Giants are going to be making a coaching change. He did not say that the team has fired him, so as we have reported, he has likely resigned or stepped down.

The Giants will be in the market for their first head coach in 13 years. Coughlin has been the head guy for the past 12 years. Coughlin replaced Jim Fassel, who went 58-53 during his six-year tenure with the team.

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 Philadelphia 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.
