Default Raiders and Skins to announce coaches today?

The New York Giants have made at least an oral offer to Tom Coughlin, and he could be introduced as early as Tuesday as the successor to deposed Jim Fassel, reports ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli.


Coughlin was interviewed for a second time by the Giants on Monday.


The former Jaguars coach arrived in the New York metropolitan area on Monday afternoon, becoming the first candidate to get a second interview for the job that opened when Fassel was fired after a 4-12 season.


The early favorite to land the Giants job he rejected in 1993, Coughlin brought a suit and tie with him to New York at the team's suggestion. While the choice was said to be a close one -- with Coughlin barely besting New England offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, Pats defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel and St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Lovie Smith -- ESPN.com has learned that the Giants have yet to close the deal.


"I'm not going to say anything about the coaching situation," Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press around 6 p.m. Monday.


Sources told ESPN.com that the Giants were in telephone contact with agent Gary O'Hagan but that the negotiations were far from completed, even though the New York position is the opening Coughlin most wants. That said, if negotiations with the Giants drag on, Coughlin is still booked on a flight to Buffalo, set to interview with general manager Tom Donahoe for the Bills' vacancy.


Coughlin has promised Donahoe he will apprise him of his progress with the Giants late Monday night. Negotiations were expected to go late into the evening.


"People had better be careful if they assume this is a done deal with the Giants," one league source monitoring the negotiations told ESPN.com. "At the end of the day, do I really believe that Coughlin will be the Giants' coach? Yeah, I do, but it hasn't happened yet."


A former Giants assistant under Bill Parcells, Coughlin posted a 72-64 record in eight seasons with the Jaguars, twice leading them to the AFC title game. He was fired after the 2002 season, his third straight losing season.


The Giants offered Coughlin their head coaching job in 1993 after firing Ray Handley. Coughlin turned them down, saying he wanted to complete a rebuilding program he had started at Boston College.


It is not certain whether the Giants contacted LSU coach Nick Saban, as some expected them to do, to gauge his interest in their vacancy. Like Coughlin, Saban, whose team won the BCS national championship Sunday night, turned down the opportunity to become the Giants' head coach in 1993.


Dave Wannstedt also turned down an offer to coach New York that year, and the Giants eventually hired Dan Reeves. He lasted four years and was replaced by Fassel in 1997.

Ray Rhodes also could be named the coach of the redskins this week.

The New York Giants have reached an agreement in principle with Tom Coughlin to be their new head coach, several league sources have told ESPN.com


An official announcement could come as early as this afternoon.


Coughlin will sign a four-year contract and, while financial details were not immediately available, the deal is believed to be worth about $3 million annually. The sides met for a second time Monday and, by evening, negotiations had begun.


Early Tuesday, the contract was being reviewed by Coughlin's agent, Gary O'Hagan.


Coughlin was 72-64 in eight seasons as coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and took the Jags to two AFC championship games. He was fired after a 6-10 season in 2002, with two years left on his Jacksonville contract. Coughlin would have been due $3 million from the franchise in 2004.


The early-line favorite to land a Giants job that he ironically rejected in 1993, Coughlin brought a suit with him to New York on Monday at the team's suggestion. He had already made a favorable impression on vice president John Mara and general manager Ernie Accorsi, who spearheaded the search for the successor to Jim Fassel, and then impressed co-owners Wellington Mara and Bob Tisch in meetings with the two.


While the Giants' choice was said to be a close one -- Coughlin barely bested New England offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, Patriots defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel and St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Lovie Smith -- the Giants had made it clear from the outset that they admired Coughlin's style and experience.


Coughlin, 56, was to have interviewed with Buffalo Bills officials later this week, but the Giants job was the one he had coveted.


During his one year away from the NFL, Coughlin stayed in close touch with the league. He visited at least four training camps last summer, served as an advisor to three coaches, including Bill Parcells in Dallas, and maintained key contacts. Over the last few weeks, Coughlin began contacting former colleagues and assistant coaches, working on a staff in the event he landed a head coaching position for 2004.


It is believed the Giants contacted LSU coach Nick Saban on Monday, as some expected them to do, to gauge his interest in their vacancy. Like Coughlin, Saban, whose team won the BCS national championship Sunday night, turned down the opportunity to become the Giants' head coach in 1997. Apparently Saban indicated that he would not pursue the Giants

That seems a pretty quick decision, but whatever.

Apparently he's who they wanted and feel that he can return them to winning, and I think he can.

Coughlin has a good track record with the building of a franchise.....he's known as a very tough coach, and that is probably good for the Giants, considering Fossel is more of a finesse guy.....
