It took one year for Jason Garrett to get back in the head coaching mix. The Los Angeles Chargers have requested an interview with the New York Giants offensive coordinator regarding the team’s vacant head coaching position, according to Ian Rapoport of

Los Angeles parted ways with Anthony Lynn on Monday.

Garrett, 54, coached the Dallas Cowboys to mixed results over a 10-year span, compiling an 87-65 regular-season record and 2-3 postseason record from 2010-19.

In his first season as OC, the Giants ranked 31st in the NFL in points and yards. They also tied the New England Patriots for the fewest TD tosses in football (12). Second-year quarterback Daniel Jones failed to make significant strides, though he dealt with nagging hamstring and ankle injuries in the second half of the season.

Plus, New York’s offense suffered a deflating blow when star running back Saquon Barkley was lost for the season in Week 2 with a torn ACL.

Yet, the Chargers seem to think Garrett is worthy of consideration.

Lynn led the Chargers to a 12-4 record and a Wild Card round win in 2018, but the team’s performance has dipped since then. L.A. won five games in 2019 and went 7-9 in 2020.

The Chargers lost several close games this season, as late-game time management and play calling plagued them throughout the season. Apparently, these were not part of Garrett’s strengths in Dallas.

Overall, Lynn had a 33-31 regular-season record and 1-1 postseason record over four seasons in Los Angeles.

Whoever lands the Bolts job will inherit 22-year-old quarterback Justin Herbert, who set a rookie record with 31 touchdown passes in 2020 and is the frontrunner to win Offensive Rookie of the Year.
