GIANTS HEAD COACH TOM COUGHLIN’S BROTHER DIES UNEXPECTEDLY - It’s been an emotional week for New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin. Coughlin’s younger brother John passed away unexpectedly on Monday in Bergen County, N.J., the team announced.
The death was an tragic accident, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
John Coughlin attended the Giants game against the Broncos on Sunday and on the way home, grabbed a cab. Once he arrived at his residence, John tripped and hit his head, a blow that caused bad bleeding.
John was then taken to the Hackensack Medical Center, where he later died. Tom was at his side when John’s companion, Suzanne Malloy, decided to take John off of life support.
The 63-year-old John Coughlin, who had lived in Hackensack, N.J., was Tom’s only brother. Besides Tom, John Coughlin is survived by his companion, Suzanne Malloy, and five sisters, Carole Kingston of Canandaigua, N.Y., Kathleen Troutman of Waterloo, N.Y., Patricia Reed of Waterloo, Luann Coughlin of Waterloo and Christine Cohn of East Long Meadow, Mass.
“Our family is thankful for the expressions of sympathy and prayers for our brother John’s passing,” Tom Coughlin said in a statement. “We all appreciate them. John was a friend to all. He loved life, and he will be greatly missed. He left us way too soon.”
John Coughlin was a horse trainer who actually operated a stable in East Rutherford, N.J., near where the Giants practice. John Coughlin had lived in New Jersey for over 20 years.
