Two-Time Super Bowl Winning NFL Coach
Founder, Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation

Two-time Super Bowl winning NFL Coach Tom Coughlin created the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation in 1996 after Jay McGillis, a player he coached at Boston College, was diagnosed and lost his battle to cancer. Jay’s life and his cancer journey inspired Coach Coughlin to help families facing financial and emotional challenges when tackling pediatric cancer. Coach Coughlin calls the foundation Jay’s legacy because Jay’s spirit and determination are intertwined with the countless patients and families who’ve been helped over the years.

Coach Coughlin’s achievements on the gridiron are well-known. He has spent 31 years in the NFL including 21 as a head coach. He still ranks as the 12th-winningest coach in NFL history with an overall record of 182-157 (.537), including two Super Bowl championships and a 12-7 postseason mark. The Waterloo, N.Y. native posted a 170-150 regular season record in 21 seasons as an NFL head coach, including nine years in Jacksonville and 12 with the New York Giants. Coach Coughlin’s 170 wins are tied for the 13th-most in NFL history and his 12 wins in the playoffs are tied for seventh. He led teams to capture five division titles and nine playoff berths, and his overall postseason record was 12-7.

Coach Coughlin led the Giants to two Super Bowl victories against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI, becoming the 13th coach in NFL history to claim multiple Super Bowl titles. He is also one of 20 head coaches with a perfect record in Super Bowl games.
