Giants fire offensive coordinator Jason Garrett

by time news

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, USA (AP) – The New York Giants fired offensive coordinator Jason Garrett after a dismal performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

The Giants (3-7) posted the decision on Twitter Tuesday, stating that the former Dallas Cowboys head coach had been fired.

It was not immediately announced who will replace Garrett for the next home game at MetLife Stadium against the Philadelphia Eagles (5-6). Freddie Kitchens, a former Cleveland Browns coach, is on the team and could take over.

Garrett joined the Giants last year, shortly after Joe Judge’s appointment as head coach.

The Giants were humiliated Monday by succumbing 30-10 to the Bucs. Judge indicated that the team had enough talent on the roster not to score points, hinting that there would be changes.

New York has 189 points this season. He has suffered to produce when reaching the red zone and in five of his seven defeats they add only 55 units.

The Giants finished with a total of 215 yards on Monday, the second-worst mark in the 26 games Judge has led. They added 159 yards in the December 13, 2020 loss to Arizona. In just one of the Giants’ 54 offensive plays, they added more than 16 yards.

The offense has been decimated by injuries, especially on the protection line. Center Nick Gates (broken leg) and guard Shane Lemieux (knee) played two and one game, respectively. Tackler Andrew Thomas has missed a few games with foot and ankle injuries and guard Will Hernandez and tackle Nate Solder are playing on the right, a new position.
