Former Dallas Cowboys head coach and New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is on the radar for Duke's head coaching vacancy, reports Steve Wiseman of The News & Observer.

The Blue Devils reportedly have also shown interest in East Carolina head coach Mike Houston, Army coach Jeff Monken, Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott, and Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko.

Duke plans to announce its new sideline boss by the end of the week, reports Wiseman.

The school began looking for a new head coach after parting ways with David Cutcliffe last week following 14 seasons.

Garrett has never coached at the collegiate level. The 55-year-old began his coaching career as the Miami Dolphins' quarterbacks coach in 2005 before joining the Dallas Cowboys as offensive coordinator in 2007. The team eventually promoted him to head coach in 2011, and he spent nine seasons on the job, posting an 80-64 regular-season record.

Garrett began the 2021 campaign with the Giants, who fired him on Nov. 23 after less than two seasons.

Duke finished the regular season on an eight-game losing streak after starting 3-1.
