The Giants are clearly looking for an experienced offensive coordinator to pair with first-year coach Judge, who has never been an offensive nor defensive coordinator at any level. Of course, they'd also love to pick his brain regarding the inner workings of the rival Cowboys, along with their intrigue surrounding his dominance of the NFC East in recent seasons.
Giants nation was united on the fact that bringing in Jason Garrett - even or a look - as head coach would be means for a riot.
That contract expired after Tuesday, meaning that beginning Wednesday the Giants no longer needed permission to interview Garrett. Granted, the drawn-out and exceedingly awkward divorce from the Cowboys was his idea, but it cost him valuable time in finding a new role as a head coach - given how quickly teams were moving to fill their vacancies. But it's not hard to decipher where ownership will stand on Garrett, a backup quarterback for the Giants from 2000-03.More news: SGA Gets First Triple Double in Thunder Win at Minnesota
The Giants had requested permission to speak with Garrett about their head-coaching position before hiring Joe Judge.
He previously served as their offensive coordinator.
So, Garrett hasn't called plays since the Giants were the defending Super Bowl champions - and the Giants haven't won a playoff game in eight seasons.More news: IPhones Can Now Double As a Security Key for Google Accounts
It's clear NY is looking for experience at its coordinator gig to buttress a green Judge.
With Garrett as the Cowboys offensive coordinator, the team went 47-33, so he might actually be a decent hire for an National Football League team looking for a change on offense.
