NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, head coach Tom Coughlin will return to the Giants in 2015.
The Giants finished 6-10 and missed the playoffs for the third consecutive season.
Coughlin, who won Super Bowls XLII and XLVI with the G-Men, has been the Giants' coach since 2004. This marked the first time in Coughlin's Giants career that he posted consecutive losing seasons. New York went 7-9 in 2013.
After beginning the season 3-2, the Giants dropped seven straight games to fall to 3-9. It was widely believed during the losing streak that Coughlin would be let go after the season, but the Giants finished strong, winning three of their final four games.
Many Giants, including star quarterback Eli Manning and rookie phenom Odell Beckham Jr., voiced their support for Coughlin and hoped that co-owner John Mara would retain him for a 12th season.
Other coaches on the hot seat weren't as lucky as Coughlin on Black Monday. Rex Ryan, Marc Trestman and Mike Smith were all fired by their respective teams.
