If you couldn’t believe that former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett settled for the New York Giants offensive coordinator job last season—you won’t believe this either.
Although Garrett will stay, there will be some changes to the Giants' offensive staff, among them the possibility of internal alterations when it comes to the responsibilities of those currently on staff. Increased responsibility for quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski, wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert and tight ends coach Freddie Kitchens is possible.
This was the expected outcome with Garrett despite the Giants' offensive struggles, especially after the coaching carousel had spun for weeks and there was no word on his future. The belief is that some stability for quarterback Daniel Jones and the offense could be valuable.
Jones has already had two offensive coordinators and systems in his first two NFL seasons.
Before his nine-season stint as the Cowboys' head coach, Garrett was Dallas' offensive coordinator. But he hadn't called plays since 2012. The Giants' offense also took a serious hit when star running back Saquon Barkley tore his knee in Week 2.
Barkley is expected back for next season and his return will be a bigger factor in the team moving up from 31st in offense than Garrett’s.
