Jerry Jones Has Made A Final Decision On Cowboys Coach

Jerry Jones has made a final decision on Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, but he is letting it simmer for 24 to 48 hours.

Ever since the Cowboys were officially eliminated from postseason contention on Sunday, the writing has been on the wall.

Jones did not even want to extend Garrett’s contract prior to the start of the season, and the team’s lackluster finish killed any hopes of a possible deal happening.

As Monday came and went, though, people were surprised not to see an official announcement from Dallas brass parting ways with Garrett.

As it turns out, there is a reason for that.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Jones is simply giving his decision some time to marinate.

“The reality is that the decision is already made. The Cowboys are expected to move on from Jason Garrett,” Rapoport said.

“They just have not done it yet. What Jerry Jones told Jason Garrett is that he just wants another 24-48 hours to ponder this decision and make sure it’s the right one.”

In his time with the Cowboys Garrett has amassed an 85-67 record. Over the course of those 10 years, he never made it out of the divisional round in the postseason.

Jones may be giving the decision a little more time than people anticipated, but make no mistake about it – Garrett will not be returning to Dallas next season.

  1. Jerry, i live and die cowboys. All has been behind them since i was born. My family is also a cowboy fan. If i replace a coach, will that make things better? No!!!! Stop putting up money on people who is not working for it. Fix them first. No coach in the world can coach a team who is not work for what you trying to be at in the nfl. I will always be a cowboy fan but lets start with the players and work your way up. Written didn’t come back to see us fall last then we did last year. Maybe it’s the quarterback. Only place we strong is running. Just handing me the ball. Hell, i can do that. To many mistakes is what killing us.

    1. I agree. Wholesale changes need made on the defensive side of the ball concerning coaches. A
      Fire all having anything to do with special teams coaching. Keep garrett and the offensive coaches.

    3. I am with you. It is not the coach! I have been a Dallas Cowboys fan all of my life. I watched them with my daddy and when he was on his death bed he asked me to continue to pull for them and we decided that I would support them even if they had a winless season. I do not agree with Jerry Jones firing Jason Garrett due to the fact that he coaches the players and so I think that, Jerry Jones should have taken a closer look at the game tapes to see who is not playing up to their potential. The coach can do only so much, but the team has to want to play to win. I have to say I was happy to see my Boyz beat the Redskins. I was sad that the Giants didn’t beat the Eagles (even though I would normally pull for the Eagles over the Giants), but this game had an impact on my Boyz.

  2. America’s Team my Ass, that stopped with Coach Landry, need real players not Money players, When Elliott held out for Money, should have dropped him, spend money for team, Jerry Jones won’t make a pimple on a GM’s ASS, let the Coaches COACH, GM Stay at home= WINNING GAMES

    1. I agree all the players want money to much a real football player loves the game and plays the game cause it’s what they love. Now today’s players are to soft . If a player wants more money to play then show him to the door. Now also if a player is getting a lot of money to play then he should play till it breaks him. Now the coaches need to come together on the field and talk about well this just happened so let’s do this or replace this player with another one who can get it done. Communication is the whole thing that they need to do more of and better. NEXT SEASON I PRAY WE GET TO GO ALL THE WAY

      1. And all your top players sign with other teams for more money! This is America and this is a business. PRO-fessional football.Oh well , we can sign other teams dregs for less money, and compete with the Bengals every year.

      2. I totally agree!! I think that Jerry Jones should try his hand at coaching. Then maybe he would see that it possibly could be the players and not the coach.

      3. I also hope that we go all the way next season 🏈⭐ I am sad that Jerry Jones felt that he had to fire Jason Garrett. He should have looked at the game tapes to see which players are not giving their best.

      4. I only agree to a certain extent. Zeke held out because he’s the feature back and the shelf life for a running back isn’t that long. Now when you look at the numbers Zeke has another 1,000+ yard season and that’s including sharing the load with rookie Tony Pollard to which Zeke was his biggest cheerleader. Dak put up good numbers but due to the play calling putting us behind the 8 ball we had to play catch up thus negating the running game. This team with it’s talent is actually built the way those SB teams which featured Smith, Aikeman, and Irving. The play calling was suspect.

    2. You are correct sir. My friend and I have always said Jones is the Cowboys problems because he sticks his nose in team decisions when he shouldn’t

      1. I wish that Jerry Jones would take a back seat to his role with the Cowboys. He is the owner not the coach.

    3. Agree with you 💯. Jerry Jones doesn’t know how to run a franchise. He needs wants to run the whole game.

  3. Garret leave??? Dude… Y’all screwed the pooch this time lol. Your TEAM is as ONLY good as its PLAYERS- Your COACH is the Director! If your players just… DONT have it IN them to keep POSITIVE morale moving from 1 game to the next, you’re NOT gonna be winning games. Coming from the pov of a FEMALE PHILLY EAGLES fan, You can’t move mountains unless you try! POSITIVE morale & FAITH are what make your TEAM whole… NOT the COACH – Coach out plays, player’s MOVE those plays!

  4. I believe Jason Garrett is the man for the job as head coach. Changes that Jerry Jones need to make are simple.
    Allow coach Garrett to call calls. Make coach changes that he wants. Allow Jason to put his butt on the line.
    10 win season a must or Jason gone.
    Coach Garrett own choices that he makes will be the reason why he here or gone. It’s that simple- Jason actions results if he is the Cowboys Head Coach or not. COWBOYS FAN ALWAYS, Joe Nash

  5. Jerry , jason Garrett needs to go I think that the players have lost respect for him . I personally went from a rabid Cowboy to not caring several years ago and Garrett was the reason . Most of my friends are starting to look to Houston for their favorite team . I think we would all come back as fans if you would only make a coaching change. I also think you could do better without Dak . It sounds extreme, but he is just not worth what worth as much as he thinks he his . He is just a middle of the pack quarterback without much upside . Without Zeke and his line he is only average . You need to many things for that much money . There are a lot of good quarterbacks in the draft with more potential. Dak can’t tolerate pressure .

  6. JERRY, YOUR LIST:
    1) HIRE A REAL GM!
    2) DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND HIRE, BUY OR TRADE FOR SAINTS COACH PEYTON!
    3)SIT BACK, GET OUT OF THE WAY AND LET THEM DO THERE JOBS!
    4) COLLECT MORE SB TROPHIES!
    This is what needs to happen!
