The Ravens should have the advantage because they are not only expected to outbid the Cowboys but they can give Garrett a head coaching title.

If Garrett is hired, he likely will name former Miami Dolphins head coach Cam Cameron as his offensive coordinator, a source told The Sun.

Anybody know how Steve Biscotti made his money? HUMAN RESOURCES!! (i.e. matching people with jobs). As was stated by a wise man in a previous post some days ago, let the pros do their job. If they want Garrett, I'm sure they've done their homework.

Talk about it: Ravens coaching search

There has been speculation that he could hire either Dom Capers or John Harbaugh as his defensive coordinator. Capers is the former Dolphins defensive coordinator, and Harbaugh is the Philadelphia Eagles' secondary coach.

According to a report on ESPN.com, Garrett has been offered the Ravens position but has not made a decision yet. A league source told ESPN.com there is a "60-40' chance Garrett will accept the job.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has communicated to Garrett that he would match the Ravens' financial offer -- without knowing the amount -- if Garrett rejects it, according to ESPN.com.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome went to his car at 4:18 p.m. today to retrieve a suit and when asked twice by reporters if he had a new coach, Newsome replied, "I'm going to the East-West [shrine] game."

Garrett arrived at the Ravens' practice facility at 9:57 this morning to meet with team officials.

Driven to Ravens headquarters, Garrett and his wife, Brill, walked into the players' entrance this morning, where they were greeted by team president **** Cass.

At around 11 a.m., Cass was seen giving Garrett's wife a tour of the team's headquarters and practice facility.

Former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan arrived at the team's headquarters around 12:45 and walked into the facility while talking on his cell phone. But it is believed that he is no longer a candidate in the Ravens' head coaching search.

Garrett has long been considered the front-runner for the Ravens' job.

Garrett arrived in Baltimore on Monday night and met with team officials.

from what i heard we are not out of the running but almost our new GM isnt in love with Garret

good, i don't think our new GM should be "in love" with Garrett. I am sure there must be a lot to like about Garrett considering there is so much "buzz" about him and the fact that Jerry Jones is very much in love with Garrett.

Having said that, Garrett just does not have enough of a resume' to me for us to be in love with the guy.

1 year as OC and 3 years coaching experience is extremely thin experience....that is worse than Singletary and I don't want Singletary...
