Former Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett Reportedly Agrees to Become Giants Offensive Coordinator

While droves of Giants fans would accurately question Jason Garrett's head coaching ability, he's still one hell of a play-caller.

Garrett was ousted as Cowboys coach a few weeks ago, but evidently is still itching to be apart of the game. In a way, he knows nothing else. So when the New York Giants and Joe Judge called about their vacant offensive coordinator position, Garrett had to listen.

Garrett left his initial interview with the Giants on the same page as Judge, but apparently had to talk things over with his family. Unlike new Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, Garrett opted against taking some well-deserved time off from the NFL.

Forming a competent offensive system was never really the problem for Garrett in Dallas. Just this past year, the Cowboys finished first in the NFL in total yardage. While much of that can be attributed to Kellen Moore, it wouldn't have been possible without the tutelage of Garrett.

This is a home run hire for the Giants, and is a far cry from the likes of Mike Shula.
