John Garrett Is The Bucs’ New Receivers CoachJanuary 20th, 2013
Another Bucs hire is in the books this evening, per NFL.com.
John Garrett, most recently the Cowboys tight ends coach (2007-2012), and the brother of Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, is the new Bucs wide receivers coach. He replaces the departed and popular P.J. Fleck, who is now the youngest head coach in major college football at Western Michigan.
Reports earlier this month said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was squeezing Jason Garrett to fire his brother, and that John Garrett was not well liked by his co-workers.
Garrett is an Ivy League guy and has been coaching since leaving the NFL after brief career with the Cowboys, Bengals and Bills, ending in 1991.
Joe’s pleased to see Garrett has experience and played in the league.
