New York Giants are interested in former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, but not in the role you would thing. According to ESPN’s reports, Giants want Garrett to serve as an offensive coordinator under their new HC Joe Judge.
Giants surprisingly hired Judge, who previously served as New England Patriots wide receivers’ coach, as Pat Shurmur’s replacement on Tuesday. Considering Judge’s inexperience on the big stage, the organization felt that Garrett could help him turn around a team that has a 12-36 record in the last three years.
While Garrett is out as Cowboys’ HC, he is still under contract with the franchise until January 14th. This is why Giants had to ask Dallas for permission to interview him.
It is unclear how interested is Garrett into being an offensive coordinator with the Giants, especially since he just wrapped up an emotional 10-year run with the Dallas Cowboys. In those 10 years, Garrett had 85-67 record but only made the playoffs three times and failed to advance past NFC Divisional Round.
There were rumors that Dallas might offer Garrett a front office position, but it is believed that the 53-year-old is still keen to remain in coaching.
