Cowboys Won’t Fire Jason Garrett During Season

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and EVP Stephen Jones plan to allow Jason Garrett to finish the season as the team’s head coach, no matter what happens from here on out, a high-ranking source familiar with their thinking tells ESPN.com’s Ed Werder (on Twitter). This jibes with comments made by the elder Jones earlier this week regarding Garrett’s job security between now and Week 17. 

Beyond that, there’s little guaranteed for Garrett. The Cowboys have yet to reach the promised land on the coach’s watch and Jones isn’t the patient type.

Disappointed is not the word,” Jones said after the team’s 13-9 loss to the Patriots. “There’s no question that we were given an opportunity, there were things we could have taken advantage of.”

The Cowboys entered Thursday’s game against the Bills with a 6-5 record, good for first in the NFC East, and a 64% chance to edge out the Eagles for the divisional crown. If they make the playoffs, they’ll vie for their first Super Bowl win since the 1995 season.

    “Allowing him to finish the season” = as soon as the season is over your fired.

      So you want someone who will coach 3 seasons and when he continues to come up shorts shows up to training camp, says he is retiring due to health and wanting to spend time with his family.

        In all fairness, he and Jerry have the same ethics with bringing in players, so a good fit there

        I wish Garrett would have retired to spend some time with his family 7 years ago, I can tell you that. Whoever relives JG better be in an NFC Championship in 2 years or less. Once Dak gets paid the window will close fast.

    Jerrah will not fire Coach Carrott before the season ends. Coach Carrott however is doing all he can to get fired ASAP. I hope JG wins out and Jerrah breaks him off just in time to make my holiday! Go Jerrah!

    The yes man after not getting re-newed as head coach could maybe work as a “ shield “ for Jerra during national Televised games so we don’t have to watch him picking his nose.

  4. Not a cowboy fan, not a cowboy hater. They have talent. Their coach is garbage. I don’t care if you “feel” like you are “under pressure”, you don’t go for it on 4th and 1 from your own 19 and the patriots game was embarrassing for the cowboys. Jones was right to call him out.

    I guess Dean Spanos and Jerry Jones could flip a coin to determine who is more deserving of a trip to London.
