Jason Garrett is set to become a coaching free agent, but he hopes to return to the Dallas Cowboys in 2015.
“Absolutely,” Garrett told 105.3-FM The Fan on Monday when asked if he wanted to return, via Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas.
"This is a great organization,” Garrett continued. “I think we really built a football team that we can be proud of, and there are some really good things ahead for this team.”
All indication from Jerry Jones suggests that Garrett will be back. Jones told reporters after Sunday’s 26-21 loss to Green Bay that he viewed Garrett as coach of the year, and has been an outspoken vocal supporter of his throughout the season.
Garrett came to the Cowboys as offensive coordinator in 2007 and was named head coach after the 2010 season, after serving as interim head coach during the second half of that season, following the firing of Wade Phillips.
Garrett finished 8-8 in each of his first three seasons, but this year, took the Cowboys to a surprising 12-4 record and their first playoff appearance since 2009.
