The giants may be able to mark two important boxes with a familiar face.
Jason Garrett interviewed head coach Joe Judge at Giants headquarters on Wednesday afternoon to act as an offensive coordinator, a source told the Post. The Cowboys decided not to keep Garrett as head coach after 10 seasons, but he was under contract until Tuesday because he wasn't fired.
By hiring Garrett, the Giants would give a response to the 38-year-old judge, a first-time head coach who won't name any of his own pieces. You would also add a proven quarterback developer for Daniel Jones.
Garrett was instrumental in developing a young Tony Romo as an offensive coordinator for cowboys from 2007 to 2010. After assuming office for a fired Wade Phillips, he continued to call the plays, but gave up responsibility at the request of owner / general manager Jerry Jones after the 2012 season.
So Garrett hasn't offered any games since the Giants were the defending Super Bowl champions – and the Giants haven't won a playoff game in eight seasons. But Dak Prescott – a fourth-round draft pick that will soon be among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL – also flourished under Garrett's watch.
The final decisions about the coaching staff are made by Judge, with the participation of General Manager Dave Gettleman. However, it is not difficult to decipher where the property of Garrett, a backup quarterback for the Giants from 2000 to 2003, will be.
"I certainly wouldn't mind," said co-owner John Mara last week. "I have great respect for Jason. Ultimately, that will be Joe's decision. "
