Sometimes it is enough to fail to the top. If you are Jason Garrett, then this is really the only option you have right now. For some reason we mere mortals can’t fathom, another organization is keen to give Jason Garret a chance to be their head coach.

That organization is Duke University. They are currently on the hunt for a football head coach after breaking up with David Cutcliffe.

Failure is really the only word that can be used to describe Garrett’s time with the New York Giants. The offense he was brought in to coordinate was an absolute disaster and ranked among the worst in the league. This year wasn’t much better before he was fired.

To make this rumor (which was reported by two different sources) even less meaningful, Garrett was also not a particularly successful head coach.

Although the Dallas Cowboys have amassed a lot of talent for Garrett to work with, he failed to make it through the divisional round of the playoffs once during his tenure. The team also finished 0.500 or below 5 of their 9 full seasons with the Cowboys.

There is good news for Blue Devils fans, however. There are currently 2 other candidates running. Those two other options are Clemson assistant coach Tony Elliot and Texas A&M assistant Mike Elko.

It remains to be seen if Duke will actually hire Jason Garrett, but it’s hard to see why they’d even be interested.
