One of Jason Garrett’s former players had no love for him falling on hard times when the New York Giants announced they fired him as the team’s offensive coordinator Tuesday.
Dez Bryant, who played for Garrett as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, tweeted about his former coach’s departure:
He praised Garrett, but was also critical of his football philosophy:
Garrett was the head coach of the Cowboys from 2010 through the 2019 campaign and finished with an 85-67 record and three playoff appearances. hile he had a great record, his Dallas teams largely fell short in big games and failed to live up to expectations under his guidance.
Dez appeared in 113 games for the NFC East team from 2010 through 2017 and was a three-time Pro Bowler.
This is hardly the first time Dez has taken a tough approach to Garrett losing his job as he stated back in 2020 when he would not return as head coach of the Cowboys.
