Entering the final year of his four-year deal, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett isn’t worried about his contract status.
Garrett has gone 8-8 in each of his three full seasons as head coach and has never made the playoffs. But, always the public supporter of Garrett, owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said that he decided Garrett would return in 2014 long before the 2013 season came to a close.
In true Garrett fashion, he told reporters at the Senior Bowl this week that he’s spending the offseason focusing on getting better, and not his so-called “lame-duck” status.
"I'm focusing on doing my job and our staff's job as well as we can do it," Garrett said, per Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas. "That's always been my approach in this game, as a player and a coach and that’s what I'm focused on. The business side takes care of itself. We got to do a better job to breakthrough and become the team we want to be."
