Jerry Jones Reacts To Cowboys Parting Ways With Jason Garrett
Jerry Jones reacted to the Cowboys parting ways with Jason Garrett this week.
Or more specifically, he quietly and sadly refused to publicly acknowledge what has been privately understood for months.
With Dallas officially being eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday, Garrett’s time with the organization has come to a swift end.
An official announcement will come sooner rather than later, but the writing is on the wall.
Jay Glazer reported on Fox that Jason Garrett’s tenure as the Dallas Cowboys HC will be over when his contract expires on Wednesday.

It was widely understood that barring a Super Bowl run, Garrett would not get an extension. Ultimately, the Cowboys never even got a chance to compete for the Super Bowl because they never made the playoffs to begin with.
Jones was extremely somber after the final game of the season.
“We’ll have several busy days … ahead,” he said.
“I don’t have any comments … to share about any pending decisions about coaches, players, anything within the organization at this time.”
Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer reported on Sunday that Garrett will officially be done with Dallas once his contract expires this coming week.
The Cowboys came into 2019 with a lot of hype, but ultimately the big talk never turned into anything real. When it was all said and done, the team finished 8-8.
Now Dallas will look to the future. Jones will likely have his pick of some of the biggest names in both professional and collegiate football to fill the vacancy left behind by Garrett.
“We’ll have several busy days … ahead. I don’t have any comments … to share about any pending decisions about coaches, players, anything within the organization at this time.”

A few names to keep on eye on in the coming weeks are: Dan Campbell, Urban Meyer, Lincoln Riley, Mike Zimmer and Gary Kubiak.
Who will ultimately get the nod? We’ll likely get our answer at some point over the next month.
