New York's offensive coordinator out after defeat to Buccaneers

The first major casualty in the NFL coaching carousel has emerged. After yet another poor game in Week 12 that saw the New York Giants heavily embarrassed by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the side opted to part ways with the teams’ offensive coordinator -- sacking Jason Garrett on Tuesday, the Giants and best online casino confirmed the news.

Later in the afternoon of the same day, Jason Garrett released a statement regarding his termination through Pat Leonard:

"Today is certainly disappointing, but I want to say how truly grateful I am to the Mara and the Tisch families for giving me the opportunity to coach for their New York Giants. They represent all that is good about the NFL. I also want to thank the Giants' coaches and staff for their hard work and their unwavering kindness to my wife Brill and me. This building is filled with great people who made our time here special. Most of all, I want to express my gratitude to the players that I've had the privilege to coach here. While the bottom-line results weren't what we wanted, I'll be forever inspired by their approach, their professionalism, and the fight they demonstrated regardless of the circumstance.

"One of the things that motivated me to accept this position was the opportunity to help rebuild the Giants into a contending team. We knew there would be many challenges. My expectations for our offense were much greater than what our results have been, and I accept full responsibility for that.

"Know that I wish everyone with the Giants nothing but the best going forward. In gratitude, Jason Garrett."

It's a move many believed was on the horizon after listening to the post-game remarks from coach Joe Judge, wherein the head coach basted the Giants coaching crew as a whole and refused to make remarks on the future of Jason Garrett. It also seems this was long overdue, with additional reports claiming Judge had relieved Jason Garrett of play-calling roles before this past weekend, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network -- a delegation that's seen him go from being Dallas Cowboys head coach to offensive coordinator for the Giants before being transferred to a role as a positional coach and now a free agent, with making the report.

But despite the failures Jason Garrett has experienced, his name will be mentioned instantly as a top contender for vacancies around the league this year, and that includes NFL side Las Vegas Raiders -- as one instant.

In the absence of Garrett, Freddie Kitchens, presently serving as a senior offensive assistant in New York, will take charge of the Giants' play-calling duties, as per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Freddie Kitchens served as temporary offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns before he was handed the role on a full-time basis. He then went on to become Browns’ head coach, although to disastrous results, before linking up with the Giants as tight ends coach back in 2020 -- the same year Jason Garrett rejoined the side as a part of Judge's incoming crew.
