In a move that felt like it would never happen, the Dallas Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett have agreed to part ways. Garrett’s contract was set to expire on January 14th.
Breaking: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones have decided that Jason Garrett will not be part of the organization moving forward, a source tells @WerderEdESPN. pic.twitter.com/zXf4n1I8kc— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) January 3, 2020
This move made sense, but the Cowboys drew out the process like it was a Made-for-TV drama that would air on the Lifetime Network.
Jason Garrett finishes with a record of 87-70, but finished 2019 with a record of 8-8 and failed to make the playoffs for the third time in five seasons.
It still remains unclear who will take over for Jason Garrett, although Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley and former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer have been linked to the position. New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Florida head coach Dan Mullen should also draw interest.
Infinity Sports Network will continue to follow the situation.
