Thomas Richard Coughlin was born on August 31, 1946. He is a football coach who is currently head coach for the New York Giants of the National Football League. Coughlin led the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI. Coughlin was also the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, serving from 1995-2002 and leading the team to two AFC Championship Games. Prior to his career in professional football he was head coach of the Boston College Eagles football team from 1991-1993, and served in a variety of coaching and administrative positions in college football.
Coughlin attended Syracuse University, where he played halfback for the Syracuse Orange football team. In 1967, he set the school's single-season pass receiving record. Coughlin was mentored by Bill Parcells while Coughlin was wide receivers coach and Parcells was head coach for the New York Giants. His first head coaching job was at the Rochester Institute of Technology from 1970-1973. He left the collegiate level to become a wide receivers coach in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles, and later the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants.
While at New York he was an assistant to Bill Parcells, and helped the Giants win Super Bowl XXV. Aside from coaching, Coughlin created the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation in 1996 while coaching at Jacksonville, Florida. The non-profit organization is devoted to assisting "children with leukemia and other cancers and their families by providing emotional and financial support to help reduce the stress associated with treatment and improve their quality of life", according to the foundation's mission statement. His title Earn the Right to Win: How Success in Any Field Starts with Superior Preparation made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2013.
David Fisher collaborated with baseball umpire Ron Luciano on his two best sellers. Both "The Umpire Strides Back" & "Strike Two" were "New York Times" best sellers. "Umpire" was excerpted two consecutive weeks by "Sports Illustrated", the first time that magazine ever did so. Fisher also collaborated with baseball manager Tommy Lasorda on his best selling autobiography "The Artful Dodger", as well as with San Diego Chargers former owner Gene Klein on the extremely well-reviewed football story, "First Down & a Billion". He also wrote the recent "New York Times" best seller "Been There, Done That" with Eddie Fisher.

He teaches his players that you can never guarantee a win, but you can always earn the right to winwith focus, consistency, hard work, and anticipation of obstacles.
