Sources: Cowboys unlikely to extend Garrett


FRISCO, Texas – According to sources, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is not expected to extend the contract of Jason Garrett, short or long term, as the head coach enters the final year of his contract.

While Jones can always change his mind, Garrett will be coaching for his future in 2019.

On Wednesday, Jones was asked on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas about a potential extension for Garrett.

“None of that is anything that I would talk about in this forum in any way and so we won’t get there,” Jones told the Cowboys’ flagship network. “I think I’ve made clear how I feel about Jason in terms of where he is right now as far as our ability to help us win football games. I think if you look at what we’ve done over the last few years you’ll see a pretty good winning record there. (But) it’s not enough, not enough.”

Jones added he wants to benefit from the experience Garrett has gained since taking over full-time in 2011, calling him a “great safety net for everything that we’re going to do with a young staff like we’ve got. I think we’re in an ideal position.”
