"...But Coughlin is the coach, and he has earned the right to carry on in that role without Spagnuolo hanging around as his eventual replacement..."
You mean like Jim Caldwell with Dungy? Yes, that would be a terrible distraction

Steve Spagnuolo is a great coach, seems to be loved by his players and very importantly seems to be able to make great in game adjustments. Tom Coughlin, even with his pending extension, will probably only coach another 3-4 years based on his own comments. I also know that Giants ownership would not be looked at as progressive as some of the newer ownership in the NFL (Jones, Snyder, etc.) All that being said, it is clear to me that ownership should do whatever they can (including paying him like a head coach for now) for him to be our next head coach. We have excellent young talent, what looks like an excellent general manager, and things look great for the near future, if not longer. If you are willing to give players $5-6 million dollars a year, you should be willing to give someone who you believe to be a great coach a lot of money too. I agree with your title of the article, but I believe it much more than you it appears. If the Giants feel like Spagnuolo is a keeper, it should not be for one more year, hopefully it could be for twenty more years. You give me the impression the Giants are not thinking like that, but it is clear to me that they should be.
Thank you,

Do not let Spagnulo leave under any circumstances. Pay him as an Assistant Head Coach, he is worth every penny.
The Marra's have let too many quality coaches move on to other pastures. It is time for some continuity.

Coughlin also hired Tim Lewis. And the Redskins job is still open, so don't count your chickens....

But, the dysfunctional Redskins may want to interview Spagnuol and wait until the SB's over to do so.
