INDIANAPOLIS — Tom Coughlin says he has every intention of returning to coach the New York Giants next season.

New York beat the New England Patriots 21-17 Sunday night to give Coughlin his second Super Bowl win, and the 65-year-old coach says he is looking forward to Tuesday’s parade up the Canyon of Heroes in Manhattan.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning also was on hand at the Monday morning news conference to receive his second Super Bowl MVP award.

Manning enjoyed the evening with family and friends, and said his brother Peyton congratulated him on his performance and the title. They also talked football, with Peyton asking Eli if he saw the middle linebacker on his touchdown pass to Victor Cruz.

Eli said “no.”
