Jerry Jones has all but admitted that Jason Garrett will indeed finish out the 2019 season as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. That is what we know.
We originally thought a deep playoff run would have to happen in order for Garrett to be brought back, but that has seemingly changed to another ultimate goal.
The Cowboys need to win the Super Bowl for Garrett to earn a contract extension, sources told Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report.
Jones is apparently tired of his underachieving team over the past several years and seriously wants to make a head coaching change. According to Freeman, Urban Meyer and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels are the two names at the top of Jones’ list.
Jones has defended Garrett publicly on numerous occasions in the past, but those days seem likely over with each crucial loss.
“The bottom line is we get graded. I’m in business. I don’t have to win the Super Bowl in business every year. I can come in sixth and have a hell of a year. But in this case, you’ve got to come in first,” Jones said. “You’ve got to come in first. So fundamentally, you’ve asked for something that’s a very narrow window to begin with. I want Jason to get it done.”
It looks like it’s championship or bust for Garrett.
