According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Garrett has been hired as an offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, joining the team's new head coach Joe Judge. "I am humbled and honored," Judge said when the news of his hiring was announced. "My job is to lead our players and coaches. The mission is clear, to win games. There is a process to reaching that objective, and we will implement that process and work that process starting today."
The 53-year-old Garrett was previously on the Giants as a player from 2000-2003.

Not surprised #Giants went with Jason Garrett as OC, especially after talk of hiring an experienced OC to pair w/ Judge.— Dan Schneier (@DanSchneierNFL) January 18, 2020
The work he did with Dak Prescott has to be viewed as an overwhelming positive.
Time to see what he can do designing and calling plays, attacking matchups, etc
