Watch Your Back
Tom Coughlin survived a lot of coaching rumors over the years. It seems no matter how much success he and the Giants enjoyed, there was always a constituency that advocated for his firing. Finally, after 12 seasons and two Super Bowl championships, Coughlin was let go (or 'retired' to hear others tell it) and replaced with his own assistant coach -- Ben McAdoo. We have no knowledge of any strife between Coughlin and McAdoo, but it's notable that the 38-year old rose to the throne just two seasons after taking over the Giants offense. Regardless of what kind of back office politics did (or did not) played a role in the change, the reality is that Coughlin is out and McAdoo is the new face of the franchise.
