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.
