New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett wants to be referred to as “coach.”

In a video tweeted Thursday by @SNYGiants, the former Cowboys head coach was addressing the media when a reporter said, “Good to see you, Jason,” according to BroBible. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That’s when Garrett fired back with, “Yeah, we say good to see you, Coach. That’s how we do it.” Literally a second later, you could hear him be called Jason again.

Watch the situation unfold below.

It seems like Jason Garrett and Deion Sanders have a very similar mindset. The former NFL star recently walked away from his media availability because someone called him by his first name.

Garrett must have seen that and been the only person on the planet who thought Deion was in the right.

You know who doesn’t demand to be called “coach” by members of the media? Nick Saban. You know what Nick Saban has?

Seven national titles. Meanwhile, Garrett was run out of Dallas when he failed to win at a high level. Maybe he should do things more like Saban and less like Jackson State coach Deion Sanders.

Jason is his name and I’ll never understand why people get so fired up about this stuff. If you don’t like your name, blame your parents. Don’t blame the media. It’s that simple.
