Jason Garrett has removed himself from consideration for the head coaching vacancy at Stanford.
The former Dallas Cowboys head coach tweeted Thursday night that he plans to continue as an analyst for NBC Sports.
“Thanks so much to AD Bernard Muir and everyone at Stanford!” Garrett posted. “While I enjoyed exploring a great opportunity at such a special place, I’m so excited to continue my work at NBC on Football Night in America and with Notre Dame Football!”
Garrett, 56, went 85-67 in 9 1/2 seasons with Dallas from 2010-19. He went on to become offensive coordinator for the New York Giants for two seasons from 2020-21.
Sacramento State head coach Troy Taylor is a finalist for the Stanford job, per multiple reports.
Taylor, 54, has led Sacramento State to a 12-0 record and a spot in the FCS (Division I-AA) quarterfinals on Friday. He’s a two-time Big Sky Coach of the Year (2019, 2021).
David Shaw resigned after 12 seasons at the helm at Stanford, hours after the Cardinal’s final game of the season. Shaw had a 96-54 record after succeeding Jim Harbaugh prior to the 2011 season.
