With it becoming more and more likely that Tom Coughlin won’t return next season, we look at five coaches who could replace him:


JIM HARBAUGH, 49ERS COACH
The guy is intense and may not be for everyone — Bill Parcells was like that — but he's a cutting-edge offensive mind, exactly what the Giants need. He's apparently on his way out of SF with reports that he's lost the locker room and has had a falling-out with management. He has a year to go on his contract, was nearly traded to Cleveland after last season, and Niners could try to deal him again.


BILL COWHER, FORMER STEELERS COACH
He's been linked to the Giants every time Coughlin is in trouble, but he hasn't coached since 2006 and loves working for CBS and enjoys the stress-free lifestyle. He's a throwback tough, no-nonsense defensive coach. The spit coming out of his mouth when he screams would play well in New York. But can he regain his trademark intensity after so many years away from the sideline? Coughlin and Cowher became good friends in 2009 when they were on the NFL-USO coaches tour visiting troops in Iraq.


NICK SABAN, ALABAMA
He was close to taking the Giants job in 1997 and shocked them when he decided to stay at Michigan State. The Giants wanted to talk to him before they hired Coughlin in 2004 but he had just won the national championship at LSU and never got back to them. It would cost a fortune to get him to leave Tuscaloosa, but it's worth the phone call. Biggest negative: He was a 15-17 dud in 2005-06 with Dolphins.


ADAM GASE, BRONCOS OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR
He's the hot young offensive assistant. But how much of that is him and how much of it is Peyton Manning? Mike McCoy faced the exact same questions when he was hired by the Chargers after Manning's first year in Denver and he's done very well. This would be a job upgrade for Gase but a downgrade in Mannings.


TODD BOWLES, CARDINALS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR
He's the hot young defensive assistant. Bowles is very aggressive and might have even rushed more than four against Tony Romo on the Cowboys’ winning drive against the Giants a couple of weeks ago. He's from New Jersey, went to Temple, played eight years in the NFL as a safety, seven with Washington. He's paid his dues as an assistant, including two years under Parcells in Dallas. Was 2-1 as Miami's interim coach in 2011 after Tony Sparano was fired.
