Jason Garrett and Andy Reid go way back.
The pair faced each other a couple of times a year from 2007--the year Garrett came to Dallas as offensive coordinator--through 2012, Reid’s 14th and last season as the Eagles’ head coach. With that kind of familiarity, Garrett is expecting a battle when the Cowboys head to Kansas City this weekend to take on the Chiefs, who hired Reid this offseason.
“Well, we certainly know Andy Reid and the kind of teams he’s put together for a lot of years so it’s something that I think will be a little bit familiar to us,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “The colors are different but we’ve gone against him a lot and we have an immense amount of respect for him and what he’s done and the kind of program he’ll put together.
“I think it was reflected in their success (last Sunday), starting off against Jacksonville. He certainly has a good feel for our team, having competed against us a couple times a year for a lot of years. It will be a good battle. He’s an excellent football coach and we have the world of respect for him.”
