Jason Garrett Interviewed For Giants OC Role May Stay In NFC East

  • Jason Garrett has an 85-67 career record as a head coach.
  • The New York Giants will have the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
  • Garrett spent four years as the Cowboys offensive coordinator before becoming the head coach.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. –Jason Garrett might be one step closer to finding a new home after his contract was not renewed by the Dallas Cowboys following a disappointing 8-8 season. The Giants are going through another rebuilding stage as they relieved Pat Shurmur of his duties as head coach at the end of their dismal 4-12 season.

The Giants wasted no time in finding their next coach in Joe Judge the former New England Patriots special teams and wide receivers’ coach. As Judge works to fill out his coaching staff, he’s already interviewed the previous Giants offensive coordinator Mike Shula, who is expected to become the Denver Broncos next quarterbacks’ coach under Vic Fangio.

The New York Giants have also interviewed the former Jerry Jones's favorite Jason Garrett for their open offensive coordinator position under Judge. Garrett is no stranger to the Giants organization as he was the team’s backup quarterback from 2000-2003. Garrett has been an offensive coordinator before as he spent four seasons in that role for the Cowboys from 2007-2010.

Hiring Jason Garrett won’t make the Giants Super Bowl contenders overnight and him getting the job is not set in stone yet. However, with a head coach with no previous experience in the position taking over it would only be beneficial to have an experienced coach like Jason Garrett as the offensive coordinator.

The Giants have already assembled some young talented players in tight end, Evan Engram, running back Saquon Barkley, and wide receiver Sterling Shepard that an offensive mind like Garrett can build around. He’d also be beneficial for the development of second-year quarterback Daniel Jones who is expected to be the face of the Giants for years to come.

With teams like the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys likely playoff contenders, it’ll likely leave the Giants on the outside looking in of the playoffs for the next few years.

If the Giants do hire Jason Garrett as their offensive coordinator it may go a long way in helping not only Daniel Jones develop but also Giant's new head coach Joe Judge. Either way, the hiring will be a positive for a franchise that cannot afford to keep making mistakes.
