    After 12 years and two Super Bowl titles, Tom Coughlin is no longer the coach of the New York Giants.

    Coughlin resigned after meeting with Giants ownership Monday, one day after New York completed its third consecutive losing season. Coughlin, 69, coached the Giants for 12 seasons, leading them to two Super Bowl championships.

    "I met with John Mara and Steve Tisch this afternoon, and I informed them that it is in the best interest of the organization that I step down as head coach," Coughlin said in a statement. "I strongly believe the time is right for me and my family, and as I said, the Giants organization.

    Tom Coughlin was short-changed by their "free ride" GM, Jerry Reese and
    their top draft scout. TC just was never given the talent for this team to make
    the playoffs.

    Giant season end press conference said it all. Mara praises Coughlin.
    GM Reese praises Coughlin and was incomprehensible as to Giants
    6-10 season.....I said it before, and I'll say it again.......Giants' owners
    should have made a complete cut with those in charge with players'
    operations. The GM and head of scouting should have been shown
    the door.......this team needs a complete makeover.
