Coughlin oldest coach to win Super Bowl

Posted:

Keeping his team together despite a 7-7 start, 65-year-old Tom Coughlin is the oldest coach to win a Super Bowl after his Giants beat the Patriots 21-17 to end a roller-coaster season.

Coughlin says he was hardly bothered after his Giants lost an early 9-0 lead and fell behind 17-9 in the Super Bowl. He says his team proved its resilience all season, and the Super Bowl comeback was just another example of that.

As such, Coughlin is the 13th NFL coach to win at least two Super Bowls, joining a list that includes such greats as Chuck Noll, Joe Gibbs, Bill Parcells, Bill Walsh and Don Shula. Coughlin is 2-0 in Super Bowls.
