Ravens offer Garrett coaching job

BRISTOL, CT -- The Baltimore Ravens have offered Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett their coaching job, ESPN.com reported Tuesday.

According to the report, Garrett has yet to make a decision. He was at the Ravens' training complex Tuesday morning for a second interview.

The Ravens have been in the market for a new coach after firing Brian Billick, who lasted nine seasons and guided the franchise to its lone Super Bowl title.

A year after winning the NFC North title, the Ravens finished in last place with a 5-11 record this season.

Considered one of the league's up-and-coming assistants, Garrett was hired by the Cowboys in 2007 following three seasons on the Miami Dolphins' staff.

Garrett, 41, presided over a potent offense in Dallas, as the Cowboys ranked second in the league in scoring, averaging 28.4 points. However, the Cowboys were ineffective in Sunday's 21-17 loss to the New York Giants in the NFC divisional playoffs.

A former Princeton quarterback, Garrett played 12 seasons in the NFL as a backup, including in Dallas (1993-99) where he was backup to Troy Aikman. He also played for the Giants (2000-03), Tampa Bay (2004), and Miami (2004).
