Could Tom Coughlin be coaching in the NFC East in 2016 after all?

The New York Giants have granted permission to the Philadelphia Eagles to speak to Coughlin about their head coaching vacancy and the sides are expected to talk soon, two people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports on Saturday morning.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team had commented publicly on the request, which came days after Coughlin, 69, and the Giants announced they were parting ways after 12 seasons.

Philadelphia must receive permission from the Giants because Coughlin resigned with one year remaining on his contract.
