Jason Garrett Out as Coach of the Cowboys
After a long and arduous process, Jason Garrett is out as head coach for the Dallas Cowboys.
ESPN’s Ed Werder confirmed that the Cowboys have parted ways with the nine-year head coach, even after a reported three separate meetings with the Jones’ family this week.
Those who follow the NFL assumed Garrett would be fired after this season, especially after the Cowboys failed to reach the playoffs and finished the season with an 8-8 record.
Werder reported earlier Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones and executive Stephen Jones moved slowly and with an “abundance of care and respect” for Jason Garrett. Werder said in the tweet that the phase was supposed to conclude soon, with the next phase to involve candidate interviews.
The departing of Garrett is a festive moment for Cowboy supporters. Garrett won just two playoff games since 20011 ‑‑ the Cowboys won three playoff games since 2009 ‑‑ and with the level of talent on the 2019 roster, Dallas was expected to make some noise this year, especially after winning a playoff game last year versus the Seattle Seahawks.
This year, however, the Cowboys started out 3-0, but later fizzled off throughout the course of the year before falling 17-9 to the Eagles in a Week 16 matchup that decided the NFC East winner.
With the plethora of talent on the Cowboys, it’s only a matter of time before Jones decides on who he thinks is best suited in coaching his team moving forward.
