A person with direct knowledge of the decision says NY is hiring the former Dallas coach to be the Giants offensive co-ordinator.

Jason Garrett is headed to the other side of the Giants-Cowboys rivalry.

The 53-year-old was sacked from Dallas this month after 10 seasons after he led the team to an 8-8 finish and missed the postseason for the third time in five years.

McAdoo's interview with Jacksonville comes on the heels of his interview with the Carolina Panthers for a position on new coach Matt Rhule's staff. He had served as head coach for nine seasons and had been with the Cowboys since 2007. The 53-year-old owns an 85-67 record after 12 seasons helming the Cowboys, with three playoff appearances. He last called plays for the Cowboys in 2012, however. He will now be part of Joe Judge's first staff in NY, as the Giants look to get back to the postseason for the first time since 2016.

Before New York's decline cost McAdoo his job, the coach was seen as a rising coordinator, leading the Giants to a No. 6 finish in scoring in 2015. They reportedly spoke with former Cleveland Browns coach Freddie Kitchens and longtime offensive coordinator Mike Shula about the position, too. It was initially reported on Wednesday that Garrett, who had led the Cowboys to three NFC East division titles, had interviewed for the position. "At the end of the day, that's going to be Joe's decision". Garrett gives Judge, a first-time National Football League head coach, a veteran assistant on his staff. That was especially important on offense, where the Giants are trying to develop quarterback Daniel Jones into their next franchise quarterback.
