Jason Garrett calls Giants reunion ‘right’
Jason Garrett was named as the next offensive coordinator of the New York Giants and he was more than comfortable accepting the job. A couple of days after being hired, Garrett appears to be content with his decision to reunite with the Giants.
Before beginning his coaching career, Garrett was a backup quarterback in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys. But after seven years in Dallas behind Troy Aikman, Garrett ended his career as the backup quarterback of the Giants.
Garrett’s one-year stint in New York helped make the transition into the organization a bit easier. In addition, the former head coach of the Cowboys was enamored with the idea of getting to work with Daniel Jones.
“I really liked how he played when we played against him and when we saw him on film this year,” Garrett said, via the team’s website. “He was tough, he was competitive, playing the game the right way, which is not easy to do as a rookie quarterback in the NFL, but certainly excited to work with Daniel.”
Prior to joining the Giants’ staff, Garrett spent 10 seasons as the head coach of the Cowboys. During his time in Dallas, he boasted an 87-70 record (including playoffs).
This past season, Garrett had a chance to coach against the Giants twice. In the second meeting, Dallas was able to win by double digits despite a decent performance from Jones.
Now, after being let go by the Cowboys, Jason Garrett finds himself working for the team he ended his playing career with. On the other hand, fans in New York are hoping that Garrett can help Jones take a leap forward in 2020.
