Over the years, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin has been maligned for being a strict disciplinarian. He's been called Colonel Coughlin, a strict setter and reinforcer of rules and guidelines only military veterans could comprehend and appreciate.
It should be no surprise that Coach Coughlin, when at 65 was the oldest coach to ever win a Superbowl, has been known to have difficulty relating to, connecting, and communicating with younger players.
If you're four minutes early to Colonel Tom's meetings, the coach considers you late. Tom doesn't appear to be a "player's" coach. He has been faulted for being a compliance manager, which means he gives an order, HIS order, and failure to obey results in negative consequences.
