Going into the final season of his contract with the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Jason Garrett isn’t thinking beyond the 2014 season.
Garrett has put up three consecutive 8-8 seasons since taking over the job full time prior to the 2011 season, and has never made the playoffs. Jerry Jones has been noncommittal regarding Garrett’s future, but said recently that it wasn’t necessarily playoffs or bust for him.
“We really haven’t talked about that at all,” Garrett told the team’s official website. “Again, my focus is on coaching to the best of my ability each and every day. That was the philosophy I had as a player and it certainly hasn’t changed as a coach. I wake up each and every morning to try to do what I can do as the head coach of this football team to help the Dallas Cowboys become a better football team. That’s really what I focus on.”
