According to Ian Rapoport, the Chargers have scheduled their interview with Giants OC Jason Garrett for Friday.
Rapoport notes the Giants would prefer to keep Garrett but obviously can’t block him from interviewing for a promotion.
The Chargers have now requested interviews with seven coaching candidates:
- Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus (Requested)
- Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley (Requested)
- Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady (Requested)
- Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett (Scheduled)
- Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll (Requested)
- Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy (Requested)
- 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh (Requested)
Garrett, 54, began his NFL coaching career with the Dolphins back in 2005 as their quarterbacks coach. After two years in Miami, the Cowboys hired him as their offensive coordinator and he eventually worked his way up to head coach.
The Cowboys allowed Garrett’s contract to expire at the end of last season as opposed to firing him and he joined the Giants as their offensive coordinator.
Over the course of his 10 years in charge of the Cowboys, Garrett led the team to a record of 85-67 (55.3 percent), which includes three playoff appearances.
In 2020, the Giants’ offense ranked No. 31 in total yards, No. 31 in points scored, No. 19 in rushing yards and No. 29 in passing yards.
