The Giants and coach Tom Coughlin have finalized an agreement to extend Coughlin's contract through the 2016 season.

The two-time Super Bowl-winning coach is entering his 12th season with the Giants, the second-longest head-coaching tenure in the 90-year history of the franchise. Hall of Famer Steve Owen coached the team from 1930-53.

Since becoming the Giants' coach in 2004, Coughlin is 96-80 (.545) in the regular season and 8-3 (.727) in the postseason. He led the team to championships with victories over the New England Patriots in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI.

Coughlin's 96 regular-season victories are second in franchise history to Owen's 153, and his eight postseason triumphs tie another Hall of Famer, Bill Parcells, for the highest total by a Giants coach.

The 2015 season will be Coughlin's 20th as an NFL head coach. Including his eight seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he is 164-140 (.539) in the regular season and 12-7 (.632) in the postseason. The 164 regular-season victories place him 13th in NFL history. Coughlin's 176 total victories are the league's 12th-highest total.

Coughlin has the third-longest tenure with one team among active current NFL head coaches. Bill Belichick is entering his 16th season with New England and Marvin Lewis his 13th with the Cincinnati Bengals.
