Color Jason Garrett unsurprised that Dan Campbell has found success as the interim head coach of the Miami Dolphins.

From 2000 to 2002, the Cowboys’ head coach was a teammate of Campbell’s with the New York Giants--Campbell a tight end, Garrett in the final years of his career as a backup quarterback.

They went to the Super Bowl in 2000, and Garrett considers Campbell a good friend to this day.

I love Dan Campbell,” Garrett said, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “We had the good fortune of playing together in New York for a few years and he’s a really good friend of mine and someone that I just have great admiration for and respect for. He was an outstanding teammate, he’s exactly what you want in a teammate and just brought so much to the table in both his performance, but just the way he went about it every day. I was so excited when he got into coaching because I really believed he could bring a lot to the people around him--not only the coaching staff, but to the young guys he has the opportunity to coach.

“I’m not surprised one bit that he’s had the success that he’s had.”
