Jason Garett was recently sacked by the New York Giants. Surprisingly enough, the former Giants Coach has made his way back into the game in no time.

There’s a saying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. I guess coach Jason Garett rightfully lived up to the saying. After a dreadful 26-game run as the New York Giants offensive coordinator, Garrett was given the boots by the team.

Despite the shameful failure, it seems like Garrett’s shiny resume got him back into the head coaching consideration. According to reports via The Raleigh News & Observer, the Duke University is looking to replace former head coach David Cutcliffe and Garrett is their radar.

“While (Clemson’s Tony Elliott and Texas A&M’s Mike Elko) remain in Duke’s sights, former Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett remains on the school’s radar as well. Though he’s never coached college football, Garrett played quarterback at Princeton before embarking on an NFL playing and coaching career.”

Garrett’s run with the Giants lasted for 11 weeks. During his tenure, the Giants averaged fewer than 20 points per game offensively. It was just one of nine teams league-wide to do so.

Over the entirety of Garrett’s reign as the team’s OC, the offense averaged a mere 18.2 points per game. They never once topped 30 points in a game. Previously, Garrett spent a near-decade at the helm of the Dallas Cowboys compiling a record of 85-67. Over that span, the Cowboys appeared in the playoffs three times, winning two postseason games.
