He was selected by the New York Giants in the 5th round of the 1997 NFL Draft. A native of the Bronx, Garnes is an alumnus of John Philip Sousa Junior High School located in the Edenwald section of that borough. Garnes currently resides in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
In 2011, Garnes became an assistant secondary coach for the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos’ secondary in 2013 overcame numerous injuries to its personnel, including extended periods without 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey and starting safety Rahim Moore. In their absence, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. became a steadying force on the outside and second-year safety Duke Ihenacho emerged as solid contributor in the defensive backfield.
