New York Giants interviewing Jason Garrett for offensive coordinator position

Since Joe Judge was shockingly hired as the new head coach fo the NY Giants, i've made my feelings known on how important I believe it is for him to round out his coaching staff with experience.

Jason Garrett may end up staying in the NFC East.

The former Cowboys head coach reportedly interviewed for the New York Giants offensive coordinator job on Wednesday. They needed permission because Garrett was still under contract.

The Giants could do far worse than Garrett as offensive coordinator under Judge.

He spent 12 seasons as a backup quarterback in the National Football League, spending 2000-03 with the Giants after a seven-year stint with the Cowboys.

Garrett's coaching tenure in Dallas ended this offseason after a disappointing 8-8 record and no playoff appearance. Initial reports were Garrett was actually interviewing for the offensive coordinator position, but that was not the case at the time.

"I certainly wouldn't have any objection to that", Mara said. McCarthy's staff already includes offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, quarterback coach Doug Nussmeier, offensive line coach Joe Philbin, defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, secondary coach Maurice Linguist, special teams coordinator John Fassel, linebackers coach Scott McCurley and assistant offensive line coach Jeff Blasko. NY may value Garrett's experience to help Judge in his early years with the new responsibility. The Cowboys weren't the only team Garrett served as a backup QB for, however, with the Giants being another; and that explains why he's never been adverse to returning to Big Blue.
