This tribute video to Tom Coughlin comes from Chuck Knoxx, the same video editor who gave us Odell Beckham, Jr.’s Top 10 Plays of 2015.

As the realization sets in that Tom Coughlin will not return as Giants head coach next season, the tributes and shout-outs have come pouring in just as much as suggested candidates to replace him.

Some have debated Coughlin’s place in Giants coaching lore: is Coughlin better than Bill Parcells? He’s received high praise from Parcells, but also his former colleague and Super Bowl nemesis, Bill Belichick

    On the flip side, Tiki Barber called Coughlin, “a pain in the ass”, adding that Tom treated his players like “problem children”. Hoards of supporters, including media, lashed out at the Giants all-time leading rusher for taking shots at the hard-nosed coach. Barber then called the response “pathetic“.

    Barber’s teammate and all-time receiving leader, Amani Toomer, said his coach “lives to coach football”…

    Tom’s future is up in the air. Something tells me he won’t be doing jumping jacks at Tiki’s place. He might continue coaching or, if Giants fans had their way, he’d take an advisory position to utilize his wisdom. It couldn’t hurt to have someone like Coughlin who’s willing to take all the blame when things go wrong and vow to get things right.

    As Colonel Coughlin said in his farewell press conference, this isn’t goodbye, he prefers to say, “next time”. So, thank you, Coach. Until next time!
