Jason Garrett is reportedly in the mix to replace David Cutcliffe at the helm of the Duke Blue Devils football team, shortly after being fired by the NY Giants
Less than a month after being fired by the NY Giants, Jason Garrett is in the running for one of the top reaming college football head coaching vacancies.
Fired 11 weeks into his second season at the helm of a disappointing NY Giants offense, Garrett finding a home in the ACC at a program aiming to mine their next top quarterback prospect would certainly be an interesting move.
Under Garrett’s watch, the NY Giants produced the NFL’s least-efficient red-zone offense and surpassed over 30 points just once in his 26 games in East Rutherford.
Is Jason Garrett a fit as Duke Football’s head coach?
Despite never coaching in the college ranks, Garrett does have NFL head coaching experience, obviously, from his nine-year tenure with the Dallas Cowboys, where he compiled an 85–67 record while appearing in five playoff games.
David Cutcliffe was fired as Duke’s head coach, following a wildly disappointing 3-9 campaign after leading the Blue Devils to six bowl games during his 14 seasons in Durham, N.C.
Cutcliffe was instrumental in Jones’ development, and in recent years had worked with the NY Giants quarterback on reducing turnovers during offseason passing camps.
