The mission to fill a new coaching staff keeps progressing for the New York Giants, as Big Blue has reportedly filled one of the more important positions.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the Giants have decided to hire Jason Garrett to be their new offensive coordinator. Garrett was 9-5 9.5 as head coach of the Cowboys this past season.
Garrett resided in an offensive coordinator role with the Cowboys from 2007 until Wade Phillips’ firing in 2010, which led the way for him to become the interim head coach and then eventually the full-time head coach.
As an offensive coordinator, Garrett contributed greatly to the development of a young Tony Romo, who’s first year as an every-game starter was in 2007. While serving as an offensive-minded head coach, he played a role in the development of Dak Prescott. The four-year quarterback has made the Pro Bowl twice and was the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016.
