Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is on the final year of his contract, and there is a realistic chance he is not the team’s coach in 2020.

If that is the case, he could potentially land with one of the Cowboys’ biggest rivals.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Garrett’s preferred destination would be to coach the New York Giants — a “real and legitimate potential landing spot for Garrett” — should the Cowboys decide not to renew his contract.

While the report could just be a negotiating tactic, there may be a mutual interest.

Rapoport added that the Giants would have fired Tom Coughlin a season earlier in 2014 had Garrett been given an extension from the Cowboys.

Of course, the Giants would have to decide to fire Pat Shurmur after two seasons — which would mean moving onto their third head coach in four years.

Shurmur, however, has not yielded the results the team was hoping for when they hired him. The Giants entered Sunday 2-8 and are 7-19 overall with Shurmur as head coach.

Garrett, who was a backup quarterback with the Giants in his final season in 2000, entered Sunday with an 83-63 record as Cowboys head coach since 2010. Despite a record of 20 games over .500, he has led the Cowboys to the playoffs just three times and has a 2-3 record in the postseason.

The Cowboys entered Sunday’s matchup against the New England Patriots in first place in the NFC East, but how they finish the season and perform in the playoffs could determine Garrett’s future with Dallas.
