No matter which head coach loses tonight’s Giants-Cowboys game, neither Tom Coughlin nor Jason Garrett will have to worry about looking for a new job.
According to CBS Sports' Charley Casserly, Coughlin WILL be back next year as head coach entering the last year of his contract, though a decision has not been made on an extension.
It's a good bet that the Giants 29-14 win last week was one reason Giants ownership was convinced that Coughlin needs to be retained. And considering soon-to-be-former Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver said his biggest regret was firing Coughlin about a decade ago, that’s probably a good move by the Mara family.
Already this week, Dallas owner Jerry Jones said Garrett’s job is secure no matter what the score of today’s game is.
"We're just getting started with Jason," Jones said. "It's just not the case at all. Nobody is worried about the coach's job here. We'll answer this thing as many ways as you want to answer it with as many circumstances, his job has no bearing and is not a part of this ballgame.”
