Talk about keeping it in the family

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- New York Giants second-round draft pick Chris Snee and coach Tom Coughlin's daughter had a child last fall, the team disclosed hours after picking the Boston College guard.

Snee and Katie Coughlin are not married, but together they are raising the boy, Dylan.



Coughlin issued a statement Saturday, maintaining that the Giants drafted Snee solely on his ability.

"There are two separate issues. Of primary concern today is that, by his own right, Chris is a very good football player and has proven that," Tom Coughlin said.

"That he was selected at the top of the second round is a tribute to his ability. In their evaluation, our scouts, our director of player personnel, and the coach who graded him, Chris was the No. 1 guard on our board."

Snee was the second pick of the second round, the 34th choice overall in the NFL draft.

Neither Coughlin nor Snee mentioned the child during interviews immediately after the pick was made.

"The fact of the matter is that both families are extremely happy," Coughlin said. "We're very proud of our daughter, Katie, and we're very proud of Chris Snee and the commitment they have made towards raising our grandson, Dylan."

Katie Coughlin is scheduled to graduate from Boston College this spring.

Snee said his relationship with Coughlin's daughter had nothing to do with his selection.

"This is a business, and the New York Giants are in the business of winning football games, and they drafted me so I can help them do that," Snee said.

General manager Ernie Accorsi said the Giants rated Snee as the best guard in the draft, and the third best offensive lineman.

"He was rated in the first round by our player personnel department," Accorsi said. "He was drafted as a good football player who has a chance to come in here and start."

After redshirting his first year at Boston College, Snee moved into the starting lineup for the final nine games of his second season. He started all 25 games over the past two seasons.

Snee had a year of eligibility left, but he opted to enter the draft this year.

I hope youre joking WhoDat. I cant hardly understand how folks are so fast to blame Haslett for anything that happens and spin it to the worst possible way. All the guy has ever tried to do is put us in a spot to win. He has not ever done anything that makes it out like hes trying to help his own self. He\'s the best coach weve ever had. I really feel sorry for him cause hes damned if he does and damned if he dosnt.
He picks the top rated end in the draft and folks jump on him. He brings in players that make us better and he gets jumped on. I reckon that when he takes the saints to the superbowl, folks will gritch about that too.
The thing he aint never done is try to help Jim Haslett though. Comparing him to what the giants done this weekend just aint fair and I dont think its funny neither.

This doesn\'t bother me... I mean as long as he was drafted in the ballpark where he was suppose to be, I hardly blame the coach or the pick. I know if it was my son I would snag him in a hurry.

Well it\'s not Coughlin\'s son....it\'s the father of his granddaughter. The child was born illigitimate.

Carry on.
