New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin will be back following a 7-9 season.

“I do want to coach,” Coughlin said. “I’ve always been a coach.”

Giants owner John Mara affirmed that Coughlin will return.

“We do want him back as our head coach,” Mara said. “We still have every confidence in him.”

However, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride could be in danger.

“I think our offense is broken right now and we need to fix that and we need to make some improvements on defense, too,” Mara said. “But obviously the offensive side of the ball we’ve got to improve there and we can’t go into next season with the same personnel.”

Will the Giants bring Gilbride and other assistants back?

“That’s obviously one of the main topics of discussion that we’re going to have at the end of the week, and until we have that, I don’t want to comment on it,” Mara said. “Certainly there are some changes that need to be made within the entire organization and whether that ends up being one of them or not, I’d rather wait until we have those discussions first.”
