John Garrett interviews in Miami

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett may lose his brother John to the Miami Dolphins.

Dallas’ tight ends coach John Garrett will interview Wednesday for Miami’s open offensive coordinator position, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.  La Canfora reports that the Dolphins are also looking at Chargers tight end coach Rob Chudzinki,  and Chris Palmer, a UFL head coach last year.

John Garrett is essentially blocked by his brother for the coordinator job in Dallas, because Jason Garrett plans to handle those duties.  The Cowboys continue to look for a defensive coordinator and most of their offensive staff is up in the air.

Miami’s offensive staff will be overhauled with the departures of coordinator Dan Henning and quarterbacks coach David Lee.

  1. If memory serves me correctly there is a 3rd brother, Jed Garrett, who played RB while Jason was a QB… I’m sure he’d be happy to coach in the NFL instead of using his Ivy League education to make a measly salary (when compared to the salaries in the NFL).

  2. Anyone who joins this staff goes in knowing itis a 1 year deal as the Ringleader Stephen Ross will be looking to bring in another HC for what has become a circus of an NFL franchise next season.

    Sure, but think about it. The new OC would get a multi year deal (usually 3-4 years) and, if he’s let go after one year, they still owe him the balance of the contract. So, he gets a boatload of money (relatively speaking) AND he has 1 year of OC experience to sell. Probably a win win.

  4. Judd (not Jeb) Garrett is director of pro scouting for the cows…he was formerly a TE coach (surprise!) at St. Louis before he was let go in 2007…so probably if brother John rolls out, Jason will stick brother Judd in as TE coach…there is another brother, Jim, III, that is an english teacher and unsuccessful high school football coach. Not a real creative bunch with the names.

  5. How about going after a proven offensive guy rather than another cowboy reject. McDaniels (yeah, there will be some issues), Leach or even, ugh…Childress would be better suited for this job. The Dolphins need to fix their offensive woes quickly before the defense starts to fade again. I would like to see them have a competent defense and a competent offense at the same time for a change.

    Whataya mean? There’s Azalea Jesus, Jonquil Jesus, Red Jesus and Jacaranda Jesus. Quite an imaginative range of colors, I must say.
