Jim Garret has done it all in football. But right now, He’s doing what he loves best: coaching. He was an All-Conference fullback at Utah State, played a season each with the Eagles and Giants and finally bowed out as a player after two years in the Canadian Football League.

He then coached 9 years as a college coach, highlighted by a 5 year period at Susquehanna during which his teams were 40-3-1. He worked as a talent scout for the NFL before returning to his first love: coaching. He has been an assistan coach with the Cowboys, Giants, New Orleans Saints and since 1978 the Cleveland Browns.

Few people approach their jobs with as much commitment, enthusiasm or sense of purpose as Jim Garrett. He is certainly a man who is in love with his work.
