Bills deny Giants' request to interview Brian Daboll

That contract expired after Tuesday, meaning that beginning Wednesday the Giants no longer needed permission to interview Garrett.

It's no surprise that the Giants have a healthy respect for Garrett.

The Giants had asked for permission to interview Garrett for their head coaching job, but that was before they hired Joe Judge. Permission was granted, but before Garrett could pack his socks for the trip to NY, the team chose to hire New England Patriots wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator Joe Judge. Kitchens worked with Judge earlier in their careers at Mississippi State.

The Dallas Cowboys coaching staff under new head coach Mike McCarthy is almost complete as sources have confirmed that running backs coach Skip Peete and tight ends coach Lunda Wells have joined the team.

Said Mahomes of the Titans: "The biggest thing is they believe and they're going to fight until the end just like we are". It was the first game back for Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes , who missed two games with a dislocated kneecap.


Although Shula served as the Giants' offensive coordinator for multiple seasons, it was essentially in name only. Now a free agent, the Giants brought Garrett into their building the next day. However, head coach and offensive coordinator are two very different things, and Garrett has proven himself to be a more than a capable offensive coordinator.

"I certainly wouldn't have any objection to that", co-owner John Mara said last week.

Garrett, 53, is considerably more experienced than 38-year-old Judge, which could explain part of his potential appeal to general manager Dave Gettleman, who preaches fundamentals and old-school football. Granted, the drawn-out and exceedingly awkward divorce from the Cowboys was his idea, but it cost him valuable time in finding a new role as a head coach - given how quickly teams were moving to fill their vacancies.
