Syracuse grad Tom Coughlin captures second Super Bowl

Former Syracuse star Tom Coughlin captured his second Super Bowl victory on Sunday night, as the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 21-17. Coughlin became just the 13th coach to win multiple Super Bowls.

Coughlin, who won a Super Bowl with the Giants in Super Bowl XLII, played halfback for Syracuse and was teammates with Larry Csonka and Floyd Little. He graduated in 1967.

Joining Coughlin as a SU alumni on the Giants was Markus Paul, assistant strength and conditioning coach, who graduated in 1988.

Coughlin returned to Syracuse in the 1969 season as a graduate assistant. He then worked as a quarterbacks coach from 1974-75 and was offensive coordinator from 1976-80.

He has been head coach of the Giants since 2004 and has a 78-54 record with the team, including an 12-7 mark in postseason play.
