Dan Bailey Womens Jersey After 12 years and two Super Bowl titles, Tom Coughlin is no longer the coach of the New York Giants. Coughlin resigned after meeting with Giants ownership on Monday, one day after New York completed its third consecutive losing season. Coughlin, 69, coached the Giants for 12 seasons and led them to two Super Bowl championships. "I met with John Mara and Steve Tisch this afternoon, and I informed them that it is in the best interest of the organization that I step down as head coach," Coughlin said in a statement. "I strongly believe the time is right for me and my family and, as I said, the Giants organization. "It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as head coach of the New York Football Giants. This is a not a sad occasion for me. I have spent 15 years with this organization as an assistant and head coach and was fortunate to be part of three Super Bowl-winning teams. A Lombardi Trophy every five years is an achievement in which we all take great pride." Bear Pascoe Authentic Jersey The Giants have scheduled a news conference for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday to address Coughlin's resignation. Coughlin will be in attendance, along with Mara, Tisch and Giants general manager Jerry Reese. "It is difficult to come up with words adequate to describe the appreciation we have for everything Tom Coughlin has done for our franchise," Mara said in statement. "In addition to delivering two Super Bowl titles, Tom represented us with class and dignity and restored the pride to our entire organization. He has all the qualities you could ever ask for in a head coach and set very high standards for whoever will succeed him." The Giants' third straight losing season is a fate that hadn't befallen the franchise since eight straight losing seasons from 1973 to 1980. The Giants have missed the playoffs four years in a row and six of the past seven, though the one year in that stretch when they did make the postseason ended in a Super Bowl championship. "Obviously, the past three years have not been what any of us expect, and as head coach, I accept the responsibility for those seasons," Coughlin's statement said. "I think it has been evident these last 12 years here how much pride I take in representing this franchise. I am gratified and proud that we were able to deliver two more Lombardi trophies to the display case in our lobby during that time. That is a tribute to our players and staff, and it was truly fulfilling to be the leader of those teams. "I appreciate the support of John and his family and Steve and his family and of Jerry Reese and his staff. I think our organization is a great representation of what I mean when I talk about 'team.'" http://www.chargersshopnfl.com/Authentic-Austin-Pettis-Jersey Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells, who also led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles, was sad to see Coughlin depart. "We all know, when you're in this business, we have to get off the train some time," Parcells said in an ESPN interview. "And sometimes we get off of our own volition, and other times they ask us to get off. And that's true for players and coaches, owners and everybody who's associated with the NFL. It's a sad day because he's done such a magnificent job there with the Giants. We've been friends a long time, and I'm sad, but I'm happy because it's a new adventure. Guys like him always make it work.'' Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who had hoped Coughlin would remain coach of the Giants, weighed in before the news broke Monday. "I love Coach Coughlin," Beckham said. "He's always going to be my coach." http://www.nflbrownsofficialshop.com/Authentic-Johnny-Manziel-Jersey Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck, who played for Coughlin with the Giants from 2005 to 2013, took to Instagram to pay tribute to his former coach's "dedication to your team and how intense you are on the football field."
