With the NFL in the midst of its season, one NFL coach could make his return to the sidelines in 2017. That man is former Jaguars and Giants head coach Tom Coughlin who hasn’t given up hope on a return to coaching. When asked about a potential return, Coughlin responded.

Well, we’ll see about that,” Coughlin said, via Howie Kussoy of the New York Post. “One day at a time. I hope I can make an impact in the job that I’m in. That’s why I’m in that position.”

January 2nd is known as Black Monday which comes after Week 17 of the NFL season. That should give us a better understanding of how many jobs might be available. Coughlin currently serves as an adviser to the NFL’s football operations department.

“It’s different, obviously,” Coughlin said. “I’m in the game. I’m very thankful for being involved in the game to the extent that I am. . . . I have really enjoyed the work that I’ve done, as far as going in the command room and being there throughout all the Sunday games. That part of it’s been exciting because it’s the closest thing for me to the sidelines, which is what I was looking for.”
