Jason Garrett’s time away from the NFC East will be shortlived.
The former Dallas Cowboys head coach has agreed to become the New York Giants’ offensive coordinator, a source told ESPN’s Ed Werder.

The 53-year-old will join the staff of first-year head coach Joe Judge, who earned the top job in New York after eight years with the New England Patriots.
Judge has never been a head coach at any level, so Garrett’s experience could be a valuable asset.
After finishing 8-8 and outside the playoffs, Dallas didn’t renew Garrett’s contract. He had been the head coach for nine seasons and had been with the Cowboys since 2007.
Garrett, a former quarterback, spent the 2000 to 2003 with the Giants.
