    Tom Coughlin will be joining the NFL's football operations staff, a person with knowledge of the agreement tells The Associated Press.

    The two-time Super Bowl-winning coach will work closely with Troy Vincent and with the NFL's game-related committees in an advisory role.

    The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not yet announced the hiring.

    Coughlin won 170 games in his 20 years as an NFL head coach, including the 2007 and 2011 league championships when the Giants beat the Patriots in Super Bowls. He also was the original coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and got them into the playoffs in 1996, their second season. He left the Giants after they went 6-10 in 2015, their fourth straight season out of the playoffs.
