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.
