Giants fire offensive coordinator Jason Garrett

In news that was widely expected and perhaps too late to come about, the New York Giants have decided to fire offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.

The decision to move on from Garrett comes following a 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night and growing frustrations in the locker room. Head coach Joe Judge had acknowledged as much following the Week 11 game.

“We’ve got to put our players in better position to make plays,” Judge told reporters. “I told the players to show up Wednesday ready to go. . . We’ll have a plan for them.”

That plan isn’t just a new play caller, but a new offensive coordinator entirely.

In a move those of us at Giants Wire suggested over a month ago, Freddie Kitchens, the team’s senior offensive assistant, will move into the role vacated by Garrett.

In Garrett’s first season as offensive coordinator, the Giants finished 31st overall in total offense and 31st in EPA per play. Here in 2021, the team is 25th overall in total offense and 25th in EPA per play.

The Giants also averaged just 17.5 points per game in 2020, second only to the New York Jets. They have bumped that up slightly this season, averaging 18.9 points per game, which is eighth-worst in the NFL.
