INDIANAPOLIS -- Tom Coughlin was heading into the final year of his contract in 2014 but that's no longer the case as the Giants have given their head coach a one-year extension on his deal.
Coughlin told reporters at the 2014 NFL Combine on Friday that he'd been given a one-year bump on the deal.
"I really haven't paid a lot of attention to it; it's not a big deal," Coughlin said. "A year has been added to the contract."
Reports have pegged it as a $7 million, single-year deal tacked onto the previous year that Coughlin had on his contract.
Coughlin was asked if he was approached by the team for a longer deal and said that wasn't the case.
However, the Giants letting Coughlin coach into the final year of his contract would've been a shock. Even though Coughlin's got two Super Bowl rings, he's still very much questioned by the general public when it comes to his tenure in New York.
And he'll also get to avoid any questions about whether or not the Giants will renew his contract.
