Cowboys expected to negotiate extension with Jason Garrett

The Cowboys will try to extend their season by beating the Rams on Saturday night and they reportedly plan to extend their head coach’s contract whenever the season does come to an end.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is expected to open negotiations on a new deal with Garrett in the offseason. Garrett’s last extension came in 2015 and he is currently signed through the 2019 season.

Garrett took over as head coach in Dallas on an interim basis in 2010 and has gone 77-59 in the regular season. The Cowboys have made the playoffs three times in his tenure and they are 2-2 in those appearances after beating the Seahawks last Saturday.

With the Bengals and Dolphins reportedly set to hire others, it also appears that the Cowboys will retain Kris Richard as a member of the coaching staff. That return may come with a new title of defensive coordinator with Rod Marinelli becoming a senior defensive assistant.

  1. When you look at the new HC hires, why wouldn’t they re-sign him. What other better options can they find? It takes someone with the right temperament to coach in Jerry World.

  2. This is a horrible decision and I’m a die hard fan!!!! Garret has taken this team as far as he can!!! Is game management and game adjustments are the worst!!!!

  3. Get this deal done NOW – as in today, BEFORE the game. Because I’m a sick sob that just wants to see the world burn AND for Garrett to be extended, only to be canned after today game. Oh lord, i ask not much of you……

  4. As long as Jerry is alive, he will be part head coach so Garrett is the perfect 65% head coach 35% whatever you say Mr. Jones kinda guy for the job. Rams will end their momentary feel good start to January.

  5. 2 playoff wins in 8 years, not really worthy of a new deal.
    Especially since we’ve heard for years that they have the best O line, best tight end, and a top receiver, running back & qb.
    Probably an average coach would have done better.

  6. Garrett seems like a decent guy, good for him.

    But this feels like stubborness on the part of Jones. Somehow, he’s still haunted by the ghost of Jimmy Johnson, and the need to prove himself the mastermind.

    Even a billion dollar yacht isn’t enough to make him feel sufficiently secure to go for an alpha coach.

  7. Smart move. He’s a good coach and his players respect him and play their hearts out for him. Last three years, no losing seasons, twice in the playoffs, won division twice, beat seahawks in the playoffs. He’s earned an extension.

  8. And Jerruh Jones will adopt Garrett, too. He’ll be his #3 adopted son after Michael Irvin and Tony Romo.

  9. His clapping and clock management drive me up a wall but it’s hard to argue that this team doesn’t listen to him. You never see this team quit. That’s got to be worth something.

  10. I would think after nine years and a .566 winning pct., it would be time to try something new.

    But yes, by all means, resign him.

  11. EAGLES FANS SAYING “THANK YOU JERRY” LMAO! HE OWNS YOU, SO YES YOU ARE WELCOME!
    AND HE TOOK OVER AN VERY OLD TEAM IN CAP HELL AND REBUILT IT THE RIGHT WAY THROUGH THE DRAFT
    SO YES THAT WILL TAKE TIME TO SEE RESULTS. HE REBUILT FROM SCRATCH, UNLIKE THE RAMS HC TRYING TO BUY A SUPER BOWL!
    GARRETT OVER 20 OTHER HC’S IN THE NFL P E R I O D !

    Yaaaaaaay!!!!

    Signed,

    The rest of the NFC EasT
    ———————-

    You realize he has won the NFC East 3 of the last 5 years right?

    —————-

    And I’m sure that’s the stat that’ll get him into Canton……….

  15. It’s so difficult for many to construct their own opinion with thoughtful research or atleast some semblance of logic. Jason has 29 wins,thus far, in the last 3 years, to lead All NFC coaches. He leads all coaches in the conference in wins beacuse his team is prepared and ready to play on game days. I have not always been a fan of his approach in the past but he has improved and if winning is the name of the game then why would the Cowboys replace someone that is getting results?

  16. Haha so sensitive. Writing in caps doesn’t prove a point any more, it makes you look desperate…sad

  17. OH NO, PEOPLE HATING CAPS…… YAWN, DONT CARE! CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GOOD ! TALK ABOUT SENSITIVE, BRO CHILL IT IS JUST AN OPTION THAT EVERY KEYBOARD GIVES YOU … SHEEESH, TALK ABOUT SENSITIVE. YOU GONNA MAKE IT LITTLE GUY?

  18. Oh this is fantastic! Plus you morons are going to resign Dakota as well!!! That is so great for the Eagles and the Giants, the only two teams other than Dallas that matter in the NFC EAST. You guys KNOW you aren’t winning an SB with Garret/Dakota right? You absolutely know that and it’s hysterical how sensitive you are about it yet you are ok with this. The Clapper is a joke of a coach and Dakota is at his best a C plus QB yet you guys now having evidence that these two are not SB material are all in? It’s amazing, thank you Jerruh for the laugh. It’s cute that they beat a Seahawks team barely that blew the game plan at home, but that will be your one win in these playoffs and next year you’ll be back where you belong at 3rd or 4th place in the division with those “great” Dallas fans so hopeful. And yet the Eagles and the Giants, the only two teams in over two decades to win SBs in today’s football will be there to gladly accept taking on the clapper and Dakota. Thanks Jerruh, you are the best

  19. I love how all these morons, especially Eagles fans chirping how happy they are that Garrett is getting an extension. This is the same coach who has beat your team twice this season.

    Worry about your own team who will get their butts cleaned by the Saints tomorrow, the Foles magic is over Philthydelphia.

  20. This division title will turn out to be one of the worst things to happen to the Cowboys in recent memory. None of the changes this franchise desperately needed to stay competitive for the next decade will be made now.

  21. Starting to look like you are going to have to dust off the VCR’s and bust out the old VHS tapes if you want to see the cowboys in the super bowl.

    i dont understand the garrett hatred.
    _____________________________
    I think the fact that they’re so inconsistent from season to season is a sign he’s not a good coach. He’s not terrible, but I don’t think he’s good enough to make them a legit super bowl threat

    Garrett is .500 versus the Eagles. The Eagles have twice as many playoff wins than the Cowboys during Garrett’s tenure.

  26. Not so fast, Jerruh!!! Your Cowboys just lost another playoff game. The only thing better than seeing the Cowboys lose another playoff game is seeing Jerruh Jones up in his luxury box crying. But Fox failed to show that tonight, which disappointed all of us Cowboys haters!!
    Good job Rams!! No more Jerruh Jones for the rest of the playoffs!! Yippppeeee!!!!!

  27. This fan of the World Champion Philadelphia Eagle’s is completely behind Jerruhs decision to extend the clapper. He is a meh coach, no threat to the Birds.

    Also, Dak is bad at football. How many wide open receivers did he miss today, plus that LB dropped a gift pick-six. PLEASE, extend him, too.

    How ’bout those Cowboys? See you in September. Enjoy your VHS tape of the lst time you were relevant.

  28. Please extend Jason’s contract, for 10 more years. The best coach this league has ever seen. A true football mind, a elite football mind. Jerry you’re a fool if you don’t do it tomorrow.

  29. I think its funny that all the Eagles fans talking about Garrett and saying that the division runs through them and the Giants. Calm down Eagles fan and sit back down in your high chairs. Dallas Cowboys still have 5 Lombardi’s granted its been a long time since we were there but you guys win 1 Super Bowl and you think thats something special come back when you guys win more than 1. Hopefully you guys don’t have to wait another 51 years… LOL give me a break…
