Jason Garrett has agreed to become the new offensive coordinator of the New York Giants, a source told ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Garrett will stay in the NFC East, just weeks after he was not retained by the Dallas Cowboys, where he was head coach for nine seasons.
The 53-year-old Garrett has ties to the Giants organization, having played there from 2000 to 2003, and he is well-respected inside their building.
Garrett will inherit an offense that turned to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones this past season, and has star running back Saquon Barkley in the backfield.
Garrett has experience working with young QBs. He was a key figure in the development of current Cowboys starter Dak Prescott, a fourth-round pick in 2016. Prescott finished fourth in the NFL with a QBR of 70.1 this season.
