Well, the inevitable has happened. Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys will not be moving forward with head coach Jason Garrett.
In his nine years of coaching in Dallas, Garrett finished with an 85-67 record. Despite all of the wins, Dallas only managed to win two playoff games and win their division three times during his time as coach. He did, however, win the NFL Coach of the Year award in 2016 after the Cowboys finished that season with a 13-3 record. He is the second-longest tenured coach for “America’s team,” behind the great Tom Landry.
According to KETK, the Cowboys will let Jason Garrett’s contract expire on January 14.
Dallas’ 8-8 record is the reason why they didn’t make the playoffs this season. They lost a crucial game to Philadelphia 17-9 on December 22, and that ultimately decided their fate in their division.
This decision is everything but official right now, and won’t be until the 14th of January. Then the Cowboys’ search continues to find a coach that fits their team better, or one that will back down and let Jerry Jones do whatever he wants.
