John Coughlin, younger brother of New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, died on Monday at the age of 63.

John Coughlin, younger brother of New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, died on Monday at the age of 63.

According to Dave Little and Larry McShane of the New York Daily News, the cause of death was a brain hemorrhage as a result of him tripping and hitting his head outside his Hackensack, N.J. home. 

His friend, Larry Remmen, said,"As a result of the fall, he had a brain hemorrhage. It was just a freak thing that happened." 

Coughlin was at the sidelines of MetLife Stadium for the Giants' game against the Denver Broncos on September 15. Once the game wrapped up, he had a few beers at Redd's in Carlstadt, N.Y., per the Newark Star-Ledger's Steve Politi. 

He then took a cab on his way to his Hackensack apartment when his longtime companion, Suzanne Malloy, called him on his cell phone after he hadn't gotten home at a time she was expecting. 

The cabbie answered saying, "You'd better get down here!" after he saw Coughlin bleeding profusely after he hit his head on the pavement. Politi said the head injury and presecription blood thinners he had been taking resulted in swelling in his brain.

He passed away at Hackensack Medical Center on Monday after being taken off life support and with his older brother Tom by his side.  

The Giants head coach said his brother "left us way too soon" in a statement released by the team via ESPN New York. 

"Our family is thankful for the expressions of sympathy and prayers for our brother John's passing. 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." 

Despite the tragedy, Tom Coughlin will still coach the Giants through this week for their road game against the Carolina Panthers on September 22. Once the game concludes, he will go to the Doran Funeral Home in Seneca Falls, N.Y. in time for the funeral on Tuesday. 

Wide receiver Victor Cruz spoke about his and his teammates' support for their head coach.

"He's here with us, and that says a lot to his character and that says a lot to the type of person that he is and the type of love that he has for this team. I think we all understood that and we all respected that. And we're all on Coach's side with this."  

John Coughlin was actively involved in horse racing, being the owner of Coughlin's Stables and a former member of the Standardbred Owners Association of New York and the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey.

NFL Power Rankings Week 2: Updated 2014 Analysis Before Thursday Night Football

Sep 11 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There were a number of surprising results from Week 1 of the NFL season, but it is important not to overreact to just one game for each team. In a 16-game season, almost every squad is going to have outcomes that simply blow the minds of most fans. This does not necessarily mean they will lose every other game or they are not as good as we thought they were. While there will obviously be major shifts in the power rankings for teams who impressed this week (Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins) ...

Tom Coughlin calls Giants’ loss to Lions “a nightmare”

New-Look Giants Defense Lacks Teeth in Season-Opening Loss

Sep 8 2014 10:36pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

So long as the New York Giants continue to sputter on the offensive side of the ball, the franchise will continue to draw mediocre results. A shoddy performance from Eli Manning and his cohorts explains why the Giants were crushed 35-14 in their season opener Monday night in Detroit.  But it certainly didn't help that a somewhat revamped defense had almost no bite to it against the Lions.  This is a Detroit team that had 34 turnovers last season—a total that was trumped only by the Gian ...

Stafford, Megatron impress, Lions crush Giants

Sep 8 2014 9:14pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

DETROIT — Matthew Stafford was at his best when improvising — and that alone may be a sign of improvement. Stafford threw two early touchdown passes to Calvin Johnson, and Detroit beat the New York Giants 35-14 on Monday night in Jim Caldwell’s first game as Lions coach. It was a bright start for the Lions and their quarterback after the team collapsed down the stretch in 2013 — in part because of Stafford’s turnovers. "I don’t work on my moves a lot during p ...
