Early Life

Thomas Richard Coughlin was born on August 31, 1946, in Waterloo, New York. He played football and basketball in high school. He once played against Jim Boeheim of Lyons High School in a basketball game. Tom idolized Heisman Trophy winner Ernie Davis and followed in his footsteps to Syracuse University. Coughlin was a three-year letter-winner on the football team under Hall of Fame coach Ben Schwartzwalder as the team's halfback. In 1967, Coughlin set the school's single-season pass receiving record. Jim Boeheim became Coughlin's residence advisor during Tom's senior year. Coughlin stayed at Syracuse after graduation to obtain his master's degree while working as a graduate assistant.

Coaching Career

Tom Coughlin began coaching at the collegiate level in the early 70s, beginning at Rochester Institute of Technology, and then moving to Syracuse University, and finally to Boston College.

Coughlin's first five seasons with the Jaguars were incredibly successful and they made it to the AFC Championship game twice. He was named NFL Coach of the Year for 1996. However, his later seasons were considerably less spectacular, and he was ultimately let go. He became head coach for the New York Giants in 2004, and had multiple ups and downs with the team. However, he managed to lead them to two Super Bowl Championships after becoming the coach, both times coming against the New England Patriots.

Following his time as head coach of the Giants, Coughlin was hired as senior advisor to the NFL's football operations department.
