Jason Garrett wasn’t retained by the Cowboys but the former Dallas head coach isn’t leaving the NFC East. Garrett has agreed to become the New York Giants’ new offensive coordinator, according to a report from ESPN’s Ed Werder.
The Giants hiring Garrett makes sense in that it gives 38-year-old rookie head coach Joe Judge an experienced presence to lean on.
The Giants hiring Garrett doesn’t make as much sense when you consider his failures with the Cowboys and how he was stripped of play-calling duties.
In any case, the Philadelphia Eagles will still be facing Garrett and his incessant clapping twice per season.
And so will the Cowboys. You really would just hate to see the former Dallas head coach help the Giants regularly beat his old team while the Cowboys struggle with new head coach Mike McCarthy.
We’ll see if Garrett can get the best out of the likes of Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley.
