Dak Prescott Has Surprising Take On Giants Hiring Jason Garrett
Dak Prescott had a surprising take on the Giants hiring Jason Garrett this year.
Garrett was the only coach Prescott had ever played for at the NFL level, so there is an understandable attachment there.
Speaking to the media this week, Prescott confirmed that the New York Giants found a stud in their new offensive coordinator.
“They’re getting a great coach,” Prescott said.
“A smart coach. As great at preparing and as professional as any I have ever seen.”

Garrett served as Dallas’ head coach from 2011 to 2019.
Prescott arrived roughly halfway through his run, in 2016.
“I can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done for my career,” Prescott said.
“Believing in me to drive me and push me to be the player that I have become. I’m thankful for his impact.”
Having done well developing Prescott, Garrett will now turn his attention to second-year quarterback Daniel Jones.
Jones had something of an up and down rookie campaign, but he showed a lot of promise throughout.
One of the big reasons Giants head coach Joe Judge ultimately hired Garrett is because of his history of developing quarterbacks.
What sort of impact will Garrett have on New York in 2020? Time will tell.
