Tom Coughlin was rewarded for the New York Giants? Super Bowl victory, agreeing to a four-year, $21 million contract Friday that will make him one of the NFL?s highest-paid coaches.

He will earn about $5.25 million annually, according to a person with knowledge of the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the contract was not signed. The person said the team will announce the deal Saturday. The two sides had the outline of the deal in place for weeks.

His new contract represents a $2 million increase over last season and what he was to have earned this year. Seattle?s Mike Holmgren is the NFL?s top-paid coach at $8 million a year.

When the season started, Coughlin was on the hot seat and all of New York wanted him gone. Hell, they wanted him fired in 2006.
