Sourfaced New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is in "discussions" about a book deal that could bring him up to three quarters of a million dollars. Unclear: why somebody would pay him to (ghost)write a book, or who might read it. Coughlin has always had a reputation as an angry, unlikeable stickler, persecuting his players for minor rule violations and wearing a perpetually pissed expression on the sidelines. He has reportedly mellowed out a bit recently, which may explain how the freaking Giants, of all teams, lucked into a Super Bowl win. Coughlin was also deeply hated by former Giant and current Today Show smiling face Tiki Barber. So schedule the book tour elsewhere, coach. [NYP]
