While many NY Giants fans will initially laugh off the idea of bringing on Jason Garrett as offensive coordinator, the move actually makes a ton of sense.
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.
So far, that has not been the case, as the defensive coordinator has just one (shaky) year as a DC, and the new QB coach has never officially held that role himself (although he stepped in for Jim Caldwell in Miami last year for personal reasons).
Giants nation was united on the fact that bringing in Jason Garrett – even for a look – as head coach would be means for a riot. However, head coach and offensive coordinator are two very different things, and Garrett has proven himself to be a more than capable offensive coordinator. On Wednesday, news broke of Garrett being at the Giants’ facility to officially interview for the position.
With the coaching staff almost complete, the offensive coordinator position is arguably the most important hire outside of bringing in Judge that this team will make for a long time. Daniel Jones‘ progression will have a lot to do with who is running the offense, and for a variety of reasons, I don’t see many candidates more qualified for the position than Jason Garrett.
Here are three reasons that the NY Giants should not let Garrett leave town without signing him to the position.
