Jaguars CB Prince Amukamara Endorses Tom Coughlin


Not only has been there been speculation about Tom Coughlin returning to the sidelines in Jacksonville, general manager Dave Caldwell has flat out expressed his interest in the two-time Super Bowl winning head coach.

Cornerback Prince Amukamara was asked about the possibility.

“It would be a great fit, wherever he goes,” Amukamara said. “I think it’s sexier here, because his family and Jay Fund foundation is down here. He’s coached here. He’s available and this job is available. It would complete the story.”

Amukamara was a player under Coughlin for five years in New York, winning one championship.

“I think guys would respond well to coach Coughlin, wherever he goes,” Amukamara said. “Not only because of his track record with the two Super Bowls, but mainly because he gets the best out of his players and he fights for his players. You’re getting a guy that loves his players, loves his team and will treat you like men. It’s all about winning with him.”

Coughlin is set to interview with the team this week.
