Could Jason Garrett be the next coach of the New York Giants? Per Ian Rapoport, if the Dallas Cowboys fire Garrett and the Giants fire Pat Shurmur at the end of this season, Garrett could be headed to the Giants.

Rapoport said on NFL GameDay that “the Giants have emerged as a real and legitimate potential landing spot for Garrett.” Rapoport also added that the Giants are Garrett’s “preferred destination” if the Cowboys let him go.

The 2-8 Giants are 7-19 in 26 games under Shurmur, and there is increased speculation that the Giants could move on from him if they don’t show improvement over the season’s final six games.

Garrett has been head coach of the Cowboys since 2010. Dallas is 83-63 in the regular season under his direction, with three playoff appearances. The Cowboys are 2-3 in those playoff appearances with Garrett as head coach.

With owner Jerry Jones pulling so many of the strings in Dallas, there is perennial speculation about Garrett’s future with the Cowboys. Some believe Garrett needs a deep playoff run this season to remain as head coach in Dallas.

Garrett was a backup quarterback for the Giants from 2000-2003, playing in only two games.

Would you be in favor of this should it come to pass, Giants fans?
