Assoc. Athletic Director/Communications
BATON ROUGE - Jason Garrett, the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, headlines this year's LSU Football Coaching Clinic, which runs from Thursday, March 31 through Saturday, April 2 on the LSU campus.
Garrett, who posted a 5-3 mark as the interim head coach of the Cowboys in 2010, had the interim tag removed on Jan. 5. Garrett is the first person in franchise history to both play for and serve as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Garrett played quarterback for the Cowboys from 1993-99, serving as the backup to Troy Aikman for three Super Bowl title teams.
"We are very excited about bringing Jason to campus for our annual coaching clinic," LSU coach Les Miles said. "Jason has a tremendous offensive mind so we are looking forward to hearing his thoughts on the game of football with us."
