Giants looking to interview Jason Garrett

Jason Garrett

Jason Garrett is looking for another head coaching job now that the Dallas Cowboys have parted ways with him, and where he ends up could turn out to be one of the best storylines of the offseason.

The New York Giants are seeking to interview Garrett for their head coaching job, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Since Garrett is still technically under contract with the Cowboys through next week, the Giants need their division rival’s permission to be able to speak to Garrett.

Now that Mike McCarthy has been hired by the Cowboys and Matt Rhule agreed to become the head coach of the Carolina Panthers, Garrett could immediately become the favorite to land the Giants job. Though, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network was told New York planned to speak with Garrett all along. The reporter also said he does not believe Garrett will get the job.

There is plenty of reason to believe the Giants’ interest in Garrett is real, and it could very well be mutual. According to a report from two months ago, the Giants would have fired Tom Coughlin back in 2014 if they could have landed Garrett. Garrett instead signed an extension with the Cowboys. The same report said New York would be Garrett’s “preferred destination” if he were to be fired by Dallas.

Aside from Garrett, the only other big name the Giants could hire at this point is Josh McDaniels. That does not necessarily mean they are looking to make a flashy hire, as they also have interest in New England Patriots special teams coordinator Joe Judge and Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
