After being fired in Dallas… is Jason Garrett getting ready to join forces with the Cowboys division rival? A once far-fetched idea could be starting to take shape as the former Cowboys Head Coach spent Wednesday interviewing with the New York Giants for the team’s Offensive Coordinator job.
Giants owner John Mara recently expressed his affinity for Garrett saying that he respects the former Dallas coach and that he’d have no problem with him serving as the OC under first year head coach Joe Judge.
Garrett has plenty of experience calling plays on offense. He was the Cowboys offensive coordinator prior to taking over as head coach in Dallas. He also has ties to the Giants organization where he was a backup quarterback from 2000-2003.
According to ESPN.com the Giants have also interviewed Mike Shula, who served as the Giants OC under recently fired head coach Pat Shurmur. Under Shula New York ranked 23 in total offense during the 2019 regular season with rookie QB Daniel Jones primarily at the helm.
The Giants thinking appears to be that Garrett will be a good fit to groom the young quarterback who completed just 61% of his passes for 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2019.
