Jason Garrett took “full responsibility” for the Giants’ offensive struggles on his way out the door, Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post reports.

Garrett released a statement Tuesday after being fired as Big Blue’s offensive coordinator following the team’s 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. He called the day “certainly disappointing” and thanked the Mara and Tisch families for the opportunity to coach the Giants over the past two seasons.

“I also want to thank the Giants’ coaches and staff for their hard work and their unwavering kindness to my wife Brill and me,” Garrett said. “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 circumstances.”

Garrett, 55, didn’t shy away from the blame for the Giants’ struggles on that side of the ball and wished everyone with the organization “nothing but the best going forward.” The Giants are 3-7 this season.

“One of the things that motivated me to accept this position was the opportunity to help rebuild the Giants into a contending team,” said Garrett, who was head coach of the Cowboys for 10 seasons before his firing in 2019. “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.”
