INDIANAPOLIS -- New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin revealed Friday that he has agreed to a one-year contract extension that will take him through the 2015 season.

Coughlin, who signed a three-year extension after winning Super Bowl XLVI in 2011, will turn 68 years old in August. That previous extension was due to expire after the 2014 season.

He said at the end of last season that he still has the desire to coach. Coughlin noted in announcing his forthcoming extension, which was agreed to prior to his arrival at the combine but which has not yet been signed, that he never had any concerns about getting it done.

The Giants organization has long believed in providing a sense of stability as far as its head coaching position is concerned. As a result, it has historically ensured that its head coaches don't enter the "lame duck" status of their contracts.
