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.

Rashad Jennings' Updated 2014 Fantasy Outlook Heading into Week 9

Oct 27 2014 8:33pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Absence is supposed to make the heart grow fonder, but New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings has owners getting more nervous than anything as Week 9 approaches. Jennings has missed two games so far this season due to a knee injury, but he is still owned in 87.6 percent of leagues—for good reason, too, as he continues to rank just outside of the top 20 overall scorers at his position despite the two-game absence and sitting out during a Week 8 bye. On a week-to-week ...
