NEW YORK CITY — It appears that former Dallas coach Jason Garrett will be headed for another coaching job in the NFC Eastern Division.

ESPN reports that Garrett has agreed to become the new offensive coordinator of the New York Giants.

Garrett was the head coach of the Cowboys for more than nine years before he was let go after the 2019 season

Garrett, 53, had interviewed with the Giants and new coach Joe Judge on Wednesday. The Giants had requested permission to speak with him because he technically was still under contract with Dallas.

He has ties to the Giants organization, having played there from 2000 to 2003, and he is well-respected inside their building.

At Judge's introductory news conference earlier this month, Giants co-owner John Mara was asked about the possibility of hiring Garrett to this role.

"I certainly wouldn't have any objection to that," Mara told reporters. "I have a lot of respect for Jason. At the end of the day, that's going to be Joe's decision."

Garrett will have several intriguing offensive weapons at his disposal, including rookie quarterback Daniel Jones and second-year running back Saquon Barkley.
