Jason Garrett was brought on as the New York Giants offensive coordinator in 2020 “to help rebuild” the organization into a “contending team.” On Tuesday he was fired.
Head coach Joe Judge made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, one day after suffering a 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and dropping to a 3-7 record.

Judge continued, “With that being said, ultimately, I’ll make every decision based on what’s best for the team long-term. I feel we have to be more productive as an offense.”
Garrett released his own statement Tuesday taking “responsibility” for the Giants’ offensive shortcomings.
“One of the things that motivated me to accept this position was the opportunity to help rebuild the Giants into a contending team,” his statement, via NY Daily News, read. “We knew there would be many challenges. My expectations for our offense were much greater than our results have been and I accept full responsibility for that.”

New York had 215 total yards against the Bucs, the second-lowest total of the 26-game Judge era. Only one of the Giants’ 54 offensive plays gained more than 16 yards against Tampa Bay. They also only had 15 first downs, which was a season-low, and 66 rushing yards – their second-lowest total of the year.
