Garrett issued a statement Tuesday after being fired as the Big Blue’s offensive coordinator following the team’s 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. He called the day “definitely disappointing” and thanked the Mara and Tisch families for the opportunity to coach the Giants over the past two seasons.

“I want to thank the Giants’ coaches and staff for their hard work and their unwavering kindness towards my wife, Brill, and me,” Garrett said, “This building is full of great people who made our time here special. Above all, I would like to express my gratitude to the players that I have had the privilege to coach here. While the lower level results were not what we wanted, I will always be inspired by his approach, his professionalism and the fighting he displayed regardless of the circumstances. ,

The Giants offense averaged only 18 points per game with Garrett topping it and was 30th in the NFL during that time, ahead of just the Jets and Jaguars. Head coach Joe Judge expressed his disappointment at the team’s lack of support after the loss on “Monday Night Football”.

“We have to do a better job scoring points,” said the judge. “I’m going to keep it very blunt right there. We have to do a better job of putting our players in a position to play. We have got a lot of good players.”

Garrett, 55, didn’t shy away from blaming the Giants for struggling on that side of the ball and wished everyone “nothing but moving on” along with the organization. The Giants are 3-7 this season.

“One of the things that inspired me to accept the position was the opportunity to help rebuild the Giants into a competitive team,” said Garrett, the Cowboys’ head coach for 10 seasons before his firing in 2019. “We knew there would be many challenges. My expectations for our offense were much higher than our consequences, and I accept full responsibility for that.”

The Browns’ former head coach Freddie Kitchen, a senior offensive assistant, is likely to be the favorite at home to take over Garrett’s duties and oversee the development of Daniel Jones going forward.
