Aside from his significant familiarity with NY from 13 seasons of coaching in the same division, Garrett also played as a backup quarterback for the Giants from 2000-2003.
Not long after Judge landed the job, a report suggested he was bringing in an experienced coach to interview for the offensive coordinator job.
Co-owner John Mara spoke well of Garrett during Judge's introductory news conference when asked about the prospect of him joining the coaching staff. Garrett last called plays for the Cowboys in 2012 before handing off the reins to Bill Callahan, then Scott Linehan, and finally Kellen Moore in 2019.
There was still a chance he'd secure a role as someone's head coach in 2020, however, as evidenced by the New York Giants seeking permission from the Cowboys to speak with Garrett prior to the aforementioned expiration of his contract. The Cowboys opted not to retain Garrett after 10 seasons as head coach, but he was under contract through Tuesday because he was not fired.
Flores parted ways with offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea, offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo and safeties coach Tony Oden the day after the regular season finale.
Jerry Jones quickly locked Garrett down and the rest is history. 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.
Joe Judge just finished his first week as coach of the Giants. He lured Patrick Graham away from the Miami Dolphins to be the Giants defensive coordinator.
Stay tuned for the latest.
