Jason Garrett is reportedly in the mix to be the next head coach at Stanford.

The Cardinal are looking for a new head coach after David Shaw stepped away, and the former Dallas Cowboys head coach is a finalist to land the job, according to The Athletic.

Jason Garrett would be a big name for Stanford.

If the Cardinal are able to lure Garrett to campus, it would be an absolutely massive hire. He’s about the biggest name they could hope to get.

He has a ton of NFL experience, went 85-67 in the regular season while leading the Cowboys and would immediately boost the profile of the team. When was the last time you heard Stanford football get mentioned and really thought they were relevant?

It’s been a long time. The days of David Shaw’s best seasons and Andrew Luck playing in the PAC-12 were a long time ago. Over the past two seasons, Stanford has won a grand total of six games. The program needs a huge boost and Garrett could provide it.

He could also present a clear path for recruits to get to the NFL given all his connections to the league. Few coaches in all of college football would have more NFL connections than him given his extensive coaching history.

If Stanford thinks the team can get Jason Garrett, the Cardinal have to do it. The university simply has to find a way to get it done.
